Is eligibility still a requirement to participate in biddings in revised IRR?

Post by kaka on Wed Nov 25, 2009 5:47 pm

Can a procuring entity conduct a bid opening even without yet results of the eligibility checking in the revised IRR?

For DPWH in particular, provincial / local districts usually have to wait several weeks for the results of eligibility which is being conducted centrally in their head office in Manila, most of the times way beyond their originally scheduled bidding.

Now that the bidding documents are issued as early as day 1 of the procurement schedule, can the bidding push through in local districts even without yet the results of the eligibiliy from Manila?

Under the revised IRR, eligibility checking (for both procurement of goods and infra) is done during bid opening. In the revised IRR, a 2-envelope system is to be implemented. The first envelope, which is the technical envelope, contains both the eligibility requirements and the technical proposal. The BAC opens the first envelope first , conducts eligibility check then preliminary examination of the technical proposal. The 2nd bid envelope (financial proposal) of those who passed in the 1st envelope will then be opened for preliminary examination.

In the case of the DPWH, which has an electronic registry of contractors in the DPWH Main, interested contractors will still have to submit their respective Letters of Intents and/or application of eligibility (if not yet registered). As far as I know, these LOIs and/or applications for eligibility are sent by the engineering districts/regions to the Main Office. If already registered, a "certification" is issued which is included in the 1st bid envelope of the bidder-contractor. The presence of that "certification" (that the bidder is a registered contractor) will be sufficient for the BAC in the conduct of the eligibility check. I am, however, not very familiar as to the detailed process flow.
