Requesting Entity: Guamor Construction & Supply (Guamor)
Issues Concern: Post-disqualification; Protest Mechanism
Resolution of the disqualification of Guamor by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in relation to its procurement for the Health Facilities Enhancement Program for the Pandan District Hospital.
At the outset, the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) and its Technical Support Office (TSO) do not have the authority to decide for and on behalf, or overturn a decision, of a procuring entity; therefore, the GPPB and the GPPB-TSO cannot grant Guamor's request to resolve the issues relative to its post-disqualification.
Nonetheless, Guamor is urged to follow the prescribed rules and procedures on Protest Mechanism laid down in Section 55 of the revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act No. (RA) 9184.
