Locally made products and the procurement law

Post by adroth on Sun Jun 27, 2010 4:17 am

I really don't know where to post this. So if this the wrong section, I'd appreciate it if the moderators could move this to the right forum section. This is a question about government offices/departments that develop local products for their own use.

Can a government agency that seeks to develop equipment for its own use, tailored to its own needs, partner with a local company for this purpose without going through the bidding process?

Are there any regulations, circulars, etc. that govern this activity?

Can a company offering such services offer its services at the prototype stage for free, and lawfully expect to be given the contract to manufacture said goods based on the fact that it is the only company that it immediately able to produce them?

Welcome to this forum adroth,

I am not sure what in particular are you concerned about but I believe there are already rules regarding your concern:

In case of 'local' companies, a provision on "domestic preference" may be invoked (under Public Bidding);

In case of exclusivity and proprietary, Direct Contracting may be used in lieu of Public Bidding;

You may elaborate your concern so as to specifically address your query. Smile

Hello Engrjhez,

Thanks for the reply.

I'm currently studying the Self Reliant Defense Posture (SRDP) of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. This a the broad, loosely coordinated, effort to develop self-sufficiency in defense equipment. The program started in the 70's during the Marcos administration, and some of the companies established during that period remain in existence today. These include:

Armscor - ammunition manufacturer, now manufactures pistols for export. The AFP still buys from this company if the Government Arsenal is unable to satisfy their ammunition demands.

Creser - hand-grenade manufacturer. Continues to supply the AFP under the "Creser" brand.

Among the more notable, and regrettable, SRDP failures are Elitool/Elisco, which used to manufacture M-16 assault rifles, and Vetronix that used to manufacture communications equipment. Both companies have since closed shop.

===== ~~~ =====

The General Appropriations Act continues to the fund SRDP, and offers the following guidance for use of corresponding funding:

http://www.dbm.gov.ph/data/Image/DND.pdf

Research, Feasibility Studies, Development Projects and Test and Evaluation. The Secretary of National Defense, upon direction of the President of the Philippines, and upon favorable recommendation of the Chief of Staff, AFP, is authorized to conduct research, feasibility studies, and development studies for projects planned and approved under the Self-Reliant Defense Posture (SRDP) Program, including materiel requirements of the AFP on weapons and armaments, air and naval armaments, air and naval materiel requirements, ammunition, communication-electronics and quartermaster items, the cost of which shall be chargeable to the appropriations provided for the SRDP Program, Research and Development (R & D) Program and other special funds as provided by law. The Secretary of National Defense, upon favorable recommendation of the Chief of Staff, AFP, is likewise authorized to farm out R & D projects to private entrepreneurs or government scientific agencies when these are not within the capability of the AFP to undertake: PROVIDED, That the amount to be spent for such research, feasibility and development studies shall not exceed four percent (4%) of the contract price of the direct cost of each project.

Section 10 of RA 7898 states the following

Sec. 10. Self-Reliant Defense Posture Program. — (a) In implementing the modernization program, the AFP shall, as far as practicable, give preference to Filipino contractors and suppliers or to foreign contractors or suppliers willing and able to locate a substantial portion of, if not the entire, production process of the term(s) involved, within the Philippines.

===== ~~~ =====

We discuss these matters here:

http://www.timawa.net/forum/index.php?board=36.0

We'd like to get a better feel for the program, and are seeking to understand how RA 9184 affects it.

=== ~~~ ===

Are there any rules that govern how companies can be brought in to build prototypes?

How much leeway does the government have with regard to company selection?

A properly weighted will make for your child

A properly weighted will make for your child

Parents often ask if it really matters if their teenager needs to go through a fitting for junior golf clubs for sale. With kids growing so quickly, it is important that they do go through a fitting for junior golf clubs. Why is it important? A properly weighted and fitted set of junior golf clubs will make swinging the golf clubs easier for your child and will result in them having more fun. ishiner
