DPWH procurement goes online amid COVID-19 pandemic

MANILA, Oct. 11 — The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) now allows contractors in the procurement of civil works contracts to conduct submission and receipts of proposed bids online.
Under Department Order 87 issued by Secretary Mark A. Villar, a new electronic process is implemented that aims to streamline the delivery of public service while ensuring safety, health, and welfare of both the Department’s personnel and the contractors doing business with the DPWH during this COVID-19 pandemic.
In this set-up, bidders are encouraged to directly submit through email their bids in the Department’s procurement activities to the Head of the BAC Secretariat of each Procuring Entity, which has a dedicated email addresses assigned,” said Secretary Villar.
DPWH Procurement Service OIC-Director Ma. Victoria S. Gregorio advised contractors to refer to the Department Order 87, series of 2020, published on the DPWH website for the respective emails of Procuring Entities and for more detailed instruction of the new online bidding system.
DPWH’s decision to move its procurement process online is consistent with the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) Resolution No. 09-2020, entitled: “Approving Measures for the Efficient Conduct of Procurement Activities During a State of Calamity, or Implementation of Community Quarantine or Similar Restrictions, authorizing an online or electronic bid submission” and the “2016 Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (RIRR) of Republic Act (R.A.) 9184.” (DPWH)
