GSIS should have known better..

Post by orlan747 on Tue Jun 22, 2010 2:40 pm

Please find below an excerpt from the ITB of GSIS for their 210M project (https://www.philgeps.net/GEPS/Tender/SplashBidNoticeAbstractUI.aspx?menuIndex=3&refID=1241273&highlight=true) :

"Prospective bidders must possess the following preliminary requirements to be considered for the application for eligibility:
a. Valid PCAB license Category “AAA” Large “B” for Buildings;
b. Single Largest Contract amounting to P210.0 Million; and
c. Single project with an area of 15,000 sq. m. of “Fit-Out” works for construction and renovation of interior finishes of office buildings for the past three years (2007-2009).

Interested bidders who possessed the preliminary requirements stated above must submit their LOIs on or before June 28, 2010, 5:00 p.m."

Firstly, since the project is "only" 210M, the PCAB category should only be a Large "A" for Buildings;

Secondly, what happened to the 50% provision as to tract record? Why require an SLP of 210M for a 210M project?

Thirdly, "Fit-Out" experience requirement seems synonymous to "Tailor-Fit" experience of favored contractors;

Lastly, LOI? Why require submission of LOI (with the aforementioned requirements) before the dropping of Bids when the new IRR of RA 9184 is very specific as to the procedures and timelines of infra procurement? Somehow, I presume that a government entity like GSIS would be knowledgeable and updated of the revised IRR of RA 9184.

Hmmm, so why do I publish this post here? Well, just to show that a government agency can violate the provisions of RA9184 and go away with it. The gppb cannot do anything about it, no police power, and despite the efforts of calling the attention of erring agencies they choose to turn deaf ears to it, and commit the same violations again on their next project.

For information purpose only.
Excerpt from NPM 014-2010 dated 5/21/2010.
1. xxxx
4. Whether xxx may specify in the Advertisement of the Invitation to Bid for Infrastructure Projects that the minimum classification of contractors eligible to bid shall be the next higher bracket of Allowable Range of Contract Cost (ARCC) from the ARCC bracket where the ABC falls.

At the outset, it bears stressing that the purpose of eligibility check is to ensure that the procuring entity is dealing with a legitimate organizations or one duly formed and organized under the laws of the Philippines. Thus, one of the licenses required during eligibility is the license and/or registration for the type and cost of the infrastructure contract to be bid issued by the Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board (PCAB).

Imposing a higher bracket of ARCC – a piece of information found in the PCAB license and/or registration for the type and cost of contract – than the ARCC bracket where the ABC falls has the effect of disqualifying contractors who are otherwise eligible to bid or have the appropriate licenses to engage in said type and cost of infrastructure contracts. We thus, advise against this practice. If the intent is for xxx to raise the quality of work done by its contractors, the proper course of action is to set higher standards or defining clear project requirements in its technical specifications
