Governor CMP clarified on caterer’s issue
Governor Carlos M. Padilla met with the Administrative Officers of the different offices of the Provincial Government on December 19 to get some clear answers why the Capitol is being blamed of giving caterers and suppliers a hard time in claiming payments for the services rendered.
It was found out that the Provincial Government has nothing to do with it. Some caterers/suppliers do not have the Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System (PhilGEPS) yet. PhilGEPS is being required by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) for any business entity to register to be able to enter contracts with the government units, pursuant to the Government Procurement Reform Act.
Another reason is that caterers/suppliers do not hold any business receipt. The Governor questioned how come that the entity was accredited in the first place. Emily Ganacias of the PGSO explained that during the application for accreditation, caterers/suppliers had submitted all the requirements. But after business permits had lapsed, permits were not renewed.
“Do not engage in any business with them if they have incomplete requirements. If they do not comply, do not give them accreditation or contract,” the Governor said.
Provincial Legal Officer Atty. Voltaire Garcia advised that the caterers/suppliers should pass the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) first before the offices of the Provincial Government would make negotiations with the caterers/suppliers.
“It is not only those with incomplete requirements whose contracts you are going to cancel, cut also the services of those caterers/suppliers with bad records and those who insistently refuse to follow what you had agreed upon,” Padilla added. #bg
