Issues Concern: GPPB Resolution No. 29-2012

 

Details

Whether the Statement of all On-going Government and Private Contracts is still required if a bidder submits a Credit Line Commitment (CLC) in lieu of the computation of the Net Financial Contracting Capacity (NFCC).

The Statement of all On-going Contracts is significant not only for purposes of NFCC computation; as it can also be an indicator or measure of a bidder’s performance to determine any reported negative slippage; or substandard quality of work; or unsatisfactory performance or delivery. Hence, nowhere in the resolution did the GPPB resolved to interpret that the requirement of Statement of On-going Contracts is no longer necessary when the bidder opted to submit a CLC in lieu of its NFCC computation.

[I]t is the opinion of this office that GPPB Resolution No. 29-2012 did not amend Section 23(a)(iii) to limit the submission of Statement of On-going Government and Private Contracts to those bidders who submitted their NFCC computation. Bidders that filed CLC shall likewise submit their Statement of all On-going Government and Private Contracts in order to verify a bidder’s performance and determine any reported negative slippage; or substandard quality of work; or unsatisfactory performance or delivery.
