downgrading of requirement

Post by bogkalabog on Mon Jul 02, 2012 12:16 pm

we are in the process of conducting a public bidding on one of our infra project. we have stated in our biddocs particularly in our requirements of key personnel is a structural engineer that is certified by PICE. However, some of our bidders through written communication said that our requirement may need a longer period of time, hence may not be able to meet our deadline for the bid opening, because their structural engineers need to apply for accreditation to PICE that would need some one to two months. The prospective bidders are suggesting that we change our requirement from the PICE certification to a Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines (ASEP) Certification. Since the BAC is leaning towards giving-in to the bidders' request, it is lawful (within the context of RA 9184) that we downgrade our requirement and state it in a bid bulletin (we thought that normally, an upgrade in requirement is stated in a bid bulletin :-)?

Section 22.5.2 states that supplemental bid bulletins may be issued upon the procuring entities initiative for purposes of clarifying or modifying any provision of the bidding documents. It does not mention any provision that it would only be issued whenever there is an upgrading or downgrading of requirements for as long as the procuring entity finds it necessary to modify the requirement in order to open up more competition which will redound to the benefit of the GOP.

In the first place, why would an accreditation from PICE or ASEP be required as one of the eligibility requirements? It can be gleaned from your letter that there are structural engineers that are not accredited yet by PICE and ASEP, are they then disenfranchised just because they do not join these associations? Are not these similar to specifying BRAND NAMES because some particular brands are more superior than the others?

A procuring agency need not be an elitist but rather should embody one of the governing principle of RA9184, "Competitiveness by extending equal opportunity to enable private contracting parties who are eligible and qualified to participate in public bidding."

Just my thoughts....
