Requesting Entity: Procurement Service Department of Budget and Management (DBM-PS)
Issues Concern: Declaration of All Ongoing Contracts in the Statement of All Ongoing Contracts
Clarification on the consequence of the failure of a bidder to declare an ongoing DBM-PS project, which resulted in its post-disqualification.
[F]ailure to declare an ongoing government and private contract, including contracts awarded but not yet started, if any, whether similar or not similar in nature and complexity to the contract to be bid is a ground for disqualification. These contracts, as reflected in the “Statement of all on-going contracts”, are vital to the computation of the Net Financial Contracting Capacity of the bidder, and they are necessary information during the post-qualification stage to verify, validate and ascertain the technical qualification of the Lowest Calculated Bidder for the ultimate determination whether it is the Lowest Calculated and Responsive Bidder.
