PROSPECTIVE bidders or contractors no longer have to submit at least three requirements in order to qualify in a bidding process, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) on Wednesday said.
Public works and Highways Secretary Rogelio Singson has directed the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) in all Regional and District Engineering Offices not to require contractors to submit original contractor registration certificate (CRC), contractor’s information (CI), and Class “A” documents enumerated in Section 23.1 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of RA 9184 or the Government Procurement Reform Act as part of the technical envelope.
Singson said the development was a result of the updates in the DPWH Civil Works Registry (CWR).
The CWR is a computerized database of contractors for civil works during the eligibility process.
In the updated CWR, the BAC can view a contractor’s authorized liaison officer through the Contact Person Verification function. This prevents unscrupulous individuals posing as a contractor’s representative or liaison officer from making an unauthorized submission of bids.
DPWH projects are posted on the DPWH and PhilGeps website from which prospective bidders may download bid documents and pay at any DPWH offices nationwide.
