various inquiries re public bidding

Post by agotera on Mon Sep 16, 2013 2:59 pm

1.) Case #1: Discrepancy between the Bid Amount in the Bid Form and Price Schedule
Findings: - Bidder mistakenly inputted the ABC in the Bid form while the Bidder's Actual Bid Cost is stated in the Schedule of Prices
- The Amount stated in the Bid Form is Higher than the amount stated in the Schedule of Prices
- During the Bid opening, BAC considered the amount indicated in the Bid Form and not in the Schedule of Prices, though
the bidder admitted that it was typographical error on their part to place the ABC in the Bid Form and not their Actual
Bid, though they indicated the correct amount in the schedule of prices. BAC already declared the bid as passed and is
eligible for post-evaluation.
Query:
a.) Can the BAC revert it decision to use the amount stated in the Schedule of Prices following IRR sec 32.2.3. item (c) which states that stated total price and the actual sum of prices of component items, the latter shall prevail; and (d) unit cost in the detailed estimate and unit cost in the bill of quantities, the latter shall prevail.

2.) Case #2: Bidder submitted only the Bid Form without the Schedule of Prices
Findings: - Bidder did not include in their 2nd Bid Envelope the Schedule of Prices but only the Bid form indicating the Bid Amount.
- BAC considered the amount indicated in the Bid Form despite the absence of the Schedule of Prices.

Query:
a.) Can the BAC's action to accept the amount indicated in the Bid Form despite the absence of the Schedule of Prices valid?
BAC already declared the bid as passed and is eligible for post evaluation.

3.) Case #3: NFCC Computation is incorrect
Finding: - BAC examined and validated the NFCC computation of the bidder and found out that there was an error in their computation. BAC came up with the correct computation of the bidders NFCC and it was found out that the bidder's NFCC was still responsive since it was greater than the ABC

Query: Is it a ground for the BAC to disqualify the bidder because they submitted a wrong NFCC computation?


4.) Case #4: Procurement of New Internet Service Providers (ISP) requiring Public Bidding

Findings: - In Appendix 13, on the Guidelines on Procurement of Water, Electricity, Telecommunications, and Internet Service
Providers, particularly section 3.3.2.1 states that "If there are more than one service contractor operating within the area, public bidding"
- Our office would like to get a new internet connection but as stated in the Appendix 13, it call for a public bidding. The
average monthly service fee for the proposed corporate account is around P 30,000 per month. If we opt to acquire an
initial one-year contract, renewable every year, the total cost would Php 360,000.
- Threshold for Small Value Procurement for NGAs is Php 500,000.00

Query: - Can the organization resort to Small Value Procurement in the procurement of an internet service provider following the
threshold and the total amount that may be incurred for a one-year contract.
- The organization wishes to resort to small value procurement so we can do canvassing of internet services (globe, pldt and
bayantel) for economy and efficiency.

Thanks

1. Your BAC should reverse their decision to consider the price in the Schedule of Prices because of the following issue:
a. The price schedule shall be used during bid evaluation. The calculated bid price shall be used to rank bidders and not the bid price as read which is indicated in the bid form. If in your bid evaluation, the calculated bid price is still lower than the amount in the bid form, then you use the calculated bid price and ignore the amount in the bid amount.
2. Unless otherwise stated in the BDS, the financial component of the bid shall contain the Financial Bid Form, which includes bid prices with the bill of quantities in the applicable Price Schedules, in accordance with ITB;
3. During post qualification, you need to recompute the NFCC and if in your recomputation, it resulted to another amount but still higher than the ABC then, bidder still pass the requirement, however if after the recomputation, the recomputed NFCC is below the ABC, then you fail the bidder.
4. The guideline is clear, you conduct public bidding if there were more than one provider.
