NPM No. 078-2016
Requesting Entity: ICONST Architectural Design Construction and Development (ICONST)
Issues Concern: Contractor`s Performance Evaluation Summary (CPES) Final Rating
Whether the submission of a CPES Final Rating is a mandatory requirement in the Procurement of Infrastructure Projects
Section 188.8.131.52 of the Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act No. 9184 expressly requires the submission of a Certificate of Final Acceptance or a CPES Final Rating and/or Certificate of Completion, which must be satisfactory. These documents ensure that the project identified in the Statement of Single Largest Completed Contract (SLCC) is not only completed, but also satisfactorily fulfilled and accepted by the project owner. Accordingly, since the two documents substantially attest to the status of the identified project, the submission of either document shall suffice. In other words, in order to substantiate its SLCC, the bidder may submit either a Certificate of Final Acceptance or a satisfactory CPES Final Rating and/or Certificate of Completion.
