Requesting Entity: Lamar Integrated Construction Corporation

Issues Concern: Registration with PhilGEPS



Whether Section 8.5.1 of the IRR-A of R.A. 9184 is a mandatory requirement or condition precedent to be complied with by prospective bidders before participating in the procurement of procuring entities.

We confirm that under Section 8.5.1 of the IRR-A of R. A. 9184, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and consultants interested in participating in government procurement are mandated to register with the G-EPS and to update the same.

The GPPB, through Resolution 022-2006 dated 6 December 2006, amended Sections 23.6 and 24.7 of the IRR-A of R.A. 9184. Under said amendment, prospective bidders are required to submit the certificate of PhilGEPS Registration as part of the minimum of the eligibility requirements under the Class "A" Legal Documents.
