October 9, 2017
In view of the deferred opening of proposal last June 5, 2017 for the above named project, the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) received a memorandum re: Freeze order on hiring of consultancy services at the PSO and RPCO level, thus, all hiring of consultancy services was put on hold. Now that the freeze order was lifted and the procurement process is about to commence, qualified applicants were no longer available, hence the failure of the said procurement.
As such, pursuant to Section 35.1 (a) RA 9184 and the Revised IRR, the bidding for the above contract is hereby declared a FAILURE.
The Secretariat is therefore directed to facilitate the second bidding without delay in the interest of service.
