Committing Towards a More Competitive and Better Governance

Friday, January 22, 2016

The Department of Public Works and Highways Region 10 (DPWH-X) held a 4 day seminar/ workshop on the Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (R.A.) 9184. The workshop happened on October 20-23, 2015 at the new DPWH-X conference room. This was attended by different DPWH-X Staff and officials including Engineers, Procurement Staffs and other personnel representing their respective sections.

This Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations, hereinafter called the IRR, is promulgated pursuant to Section 75 of Republic Act No. (R.A.) 9184, otherwise known as the “Government Procurement Reform Act”, for the purpose of prescribing the necessary rules and regulations for the modernization, standardization, and regulation of the procurement activities of the Government of the Philippines (GOP).

The provisions of this IRR are in line with the commitment of the GOP to promote good governance and its effort to adhere to the principle of transparency, accountability, equity, efficiency, and economy in its procurement process. It is the policy of the GOP that procurement of infrastructure projects, goods and consulting services shall be competitive and transparent, and therefore shall go through public bidding, except as otherwise provided in this IRR.

This seminar/workshop will properly equip and train the Regional and District Bids and Awards Committee (BAC), the Secretarial and the Technical Working Group (TWG) on the relevant provisions of the Revised IRR including the use of the electronic Civil Works Registry (CWR) for Eligibility processing and the Provisions in Department Order No. 01, series of 2010.

The participants of this seminar are expected to explain the rationale of this revised IRR workshop and apply its essence in their field of expertise.
