July 5, 2017
GUBAT, SORSOGON – About two months after the Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP) conducted the Training on Community Participation (CP) for LGU and Proponent Group Procurement Committee, calamity-stricken fisherfolk in Gubat and Prieto Diaz receive 20 non-motorized fiberglass boats worth P20,500 each.
During the Turn-Over Ceremony of Fiberglass Non-Motorized Boats held on July 3, 2017, members of the Rural Improvement Club of Bagacay and Carayat Seaweed Farmers Association were awarded 10 non-motorized fiberglass boats each which they purchased using the PRDP’s CP mode of procurement. Under CP and CFA, each proponent group organized a procurement committee composed of a chairman and two members who took charge of getting quotations from three suppliers. They then assessed the submitted quotations and prepared the abstract of quotations prior to the awarding of purchase order to the winning supplier.
