law (quasi-legislative function)
Prepare generic procurement manual and standard
bidding forms

Capacity Development
Establish a sustainable training program

Monitoring
Assist procuring entities improve their compliance
Review effectiveness of procurement law

11
GPPB Functions

GPPB has no jurisdiction to rule over


actual controversies with regard to the
conduct of the bidding since it has no
quasi-judicial functions under the law.
It is the prerogative and discretion of the
procuring entity through its BAC to come
up with the declaration since they are in
the best position to determine the details
of their Project. (NPM 56-2013)

GPPB Website

Philippine Government Electronic
Procurement System (PhilGEPS)
Serves as the primary and definitive source of
information on all government procurement
Utilized for the procurement of common-use
supplies to take advantage of bulk purchasing
Features of the PhilGEPS

Electronic Registry
Electronic Catalogue
Virtual Store
Electronic Payment
Electronic Bid Submission
14
PhilGEPS Registration

8.5.1 RA 9184 IRR requires suppliers, contractors,


consultants to register with PhilGEPS. It does not qualify
based on threshold.

Inapplicability of the posting requirement is not tantamount


to a situation where PhilGEPS registration may also be
dispensed with since the amount of the project is not a
factor for the condition to apply.

Registration with PhilGEPS is absolute, and must be


complied with regardless of the cost of procurement.

Reference: NPM 34-2013

15
PhilGEPS Registration

Sections 23.4 and 24.4.3allows the BAC of a


procuring entity to maintain a registry system
using the PhilGEPS or its own manual or
electronic system that allows submission and/or
recording of eligibility requirements
simultaneously with registration. However,
Prospective bidders not included in the registry
system should not be precluded from
participating in any procurement opportunity.

16
PhilGEPS Registration

This should not be considered an accreditation


system, and is not tantamount to a finding of
eligibility, nor a guarantee that the registered
supplier, contractor, or consultant will be eligible
for any particular procurement activity or
contract award. (NPM 16-2013)

of the procurement.

48
BIDS AND AWARDS
COMMITTEE (BAC)
PEs creation of sub-BACs to be placed under a
main BAC is not in compliance with the
requirements under Sec 11 of the IRR of RA 9184.

the composition of the BAC members subject to
the qualifications under Section 11.2.2 of the IRR
of RA 9184. Each BAC shall not be considered as

59
PROHIBITED BAC MEMBERS

the Chief Accountant, Head of the Accounting
Department or his/her staff may be designated
as an end-user member. (COA Circular Letter No.
2004 3)

60
CONFLICT OF INTEREST

Conflict of interest arises when, in the case of the


subject matter of the inquiry, the Chairman of the BAC
that conducted the earlier procurement was
eventually designated as OIC-HOPE.

The subject procurement is deprived of checks and


balances as one of the persons conducting the bid
evaluation and post-qualification, who is no less than
the BAC Chair, may have that degree of proclivity
towards the recommended action of the BAC; thus,
the subsequent award of contract may no longer enjoy
the cold neutrality of an impartial HOPE. (NPM 14-
2013)
61
BAC SECRETARIAT

HOPE may create a new office or designate an


existing organic office to act as BAC
Secretariat

There is no minimum or maximum number of


members of the BAC Secretariat.

Head of the BAC SEC must be at least a 5th


or 3rd ranking permanent employee or, if not
available, a permanent official of the next lower
rank

62
BAC SECRETARIAT

FUNCTIONS:
Provide administrative support to the BAC

Organize BAC meetings and conferences

Take custody of procurement documents and


other records

Manage the sale and distribution of bidding


documents

Advertise/post bidding opportunities and notices


of awards
63
BAC SECRETARIAT

64
BAC SECRETARIAT

FUNCTIONS:

Assist in managing the procurement


process

milestones

Consolidate PPMPs

Act as central channel of communications


65
BAC SECRETARIAT
BAC Secretariat Head cannot notarize resulting
contract of the procurement activities. (NPM 66-2013)
- The BAC Sec provides a vital supporting role for the
PE in the procurement process. If the BAC Sec
Head is to notarize the resulting contract, she
would then take on a more central role by
bestowing upon the contract the imprimatur of a
legal attestation by a third person.

- This may invite suspicion of unfaithfulness, conflict


of interest, which may cast doubt on the contract
in particular, and the entire procurement activity as
a whole.

66
BAC SECRETARIAT

BAC Secretariat Heads authority to sign


procurement-related documents should be
confined to those that are within the scope of her
duties and responsibilities under RA 9184 and its
IRR, and should exclude those that require the
exercise of discretion, consent or approval on
matters under the jurisdiction of a different
authority. (NPM 66-2013)

67
BAC SECRETARIAT

Section 14 of RA 9184 and its IRR limits the


responsibilities of the BAC Secretariat to
administrative support functions and primarily
ministerial duties. Since the BAC Secretariat is
limited to these functions, the conduct of opening
and preliminary examination of bids, where
discretion and sound judgment is required,
cannot be considered as clerical or secretariat
nature; therefore, outside the functions of the
BAC Secretariat. (NPM 69-2013)

68
TECHNICAL WORKING GROUP
(TWG)
Created by the BAC from a pool of legal,
technical and financial experts
- those experts outside the procuring entity
concerned may be included, i.e. government
personnel and officials and consultants from
the private sector and academe with proven
expertise on the sourcing of goods, works or
consulting services. (GPPB Resolution No. 07-
2012, GPPB Circular No. 02-2012)
BAC may create separate TWGs to handle
different procurements

69
TECHNICAL WORKING GROUP
(TWG)
FUNCTIONS:
1. Assist BAC in the following activities:
Preparation of bidding documents
Eligibility check/short-listing
Bid evaluation and preparation of reports
Post-qualification
Preparation of post-qualification summary
report
2. Assist BAC and BAC Secretariat in preparing BAC
Resolutions

70
OBSERVERS
Observers represent the public, the taxpayers
who are interested in seeing to it that
procurement laws are observed and irregularities
are averted.
In all stages of procurement process BAC
must invite, in writing, at least three (3)
Observers, at least 3 calendar days before
the date of the procurement stage/activity, who
shall be:
Representative from COA
Duly recognized private group in the sector or

involved
Non-Government Organization (NGO) 71
OBSERVERS

BAC is mandated to invite Observers in all stages


of the procurement process, including post-

GPM enumerates the parties who are to conduct


post-qualification. Although Observers do not
conduct post-qualification of the bidder, they are
not precluded from being invited and be present
in the meeting. (NPM 05-2013)

72
OBSERVERS
Observers shall be allowed access to the following
documents upon their request, subject to signing of
a confidentiality agreement:

1. Minutes of BAC meetings;


2. Abstract of Bids;
3. Post-qualification summary report;

5. Opened proposals

73
OBSERVERS
RESPONSIBILITIES:

2. Submit report to the PE and furnish a copy to the
