A flaw in the procurement system?

Post by benny g on Sun Jul 24, 2011 9:19 pm

A preferred supplier almost corners the monthly needs? of our office. The preferred supplier through the
canvasser "rigs" the pertinent papers/requirements of the contract. The head of the agency is in cahoots
with the canvasser, supply officer, the bidding and awards committee, even the "agency" who is suppose to
safeguard this office.

Who's at fault? How can I fight this anomaly? How can I safeguard this?

To benny g. The Government Procurement Reform Act is not the panacea of every things that ails the procurement process in the government. We should not look at the GPRA as the Knight in a shining armor that will rescue us from all these shenanigans.Far from it as it is just a guide. It becomes useless when it is disregarded with impunity. It is the people involved in the procurement that can cure what ails the procurement system. In your case, you wrote that virtually all the people involved in the procurement activity of your office are in cahoots with the supplier. What you should do is to come up with documents to support your allegations and then file the necessary charges against them. Some people will discourage you and say that yours is a quixotic effort and that you are just a voice in the wilderness and that you are endangering your life, echetera, echetera, but , benny, who will act and when are we going to act? That is a question that you should answer.

If you clear and solid evidence leading to the identification of this collusive practice, you can directly file the complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman. (http://www.ombudsman.gov.ph/)

I think it is up to the government watchdog (COA) to find out if there is a hint of truth in this since they are the final repository of the documents in government transactions. This is happening in almost all of the government agencies considering that only a few agencies post their notices in the PhilGEPS.

benny g, I feel for you! From a supplier's standpoint who probably really wants to give the government agency the best product at the best price, this kind of scenario is very frustrating.
The road that you have to take, if ever you chose to, is the road less taken, but I think it is the right thing to do. I advise that you do it discreetly and find a vendor that is willing to challenge that "preferred" supplier.
