f. Major Projects 2017

1. Professionalization Program for Procurement Practitioners

Description: In 2006, a Professionalization Program was initially developed by the GPPB-TSO through an IDF Grant for the Professionalization of Public Procurement Practitioners and Functions from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“World Bank”) to further enhance the capacities of public procurement practitioners nationwide. Under the IDF Grant, a seventy-five day Procurement Professionalization Course in three levels was developed by the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) for the GPPB, which was pilot-tested to public procurement practitioners at different levels.

Through another IDF Grant in 2012, the World Bank implemented a project entitled Strengthening the Capacity of Procurement Institutions for Effective Implementation and Enforcement of the Procurement Law, which aimed at addressing the weakness of the procurement system as identified in the 2008 Country Procurement Assessment Report (CPAR), which included Capacity Development Program for Procurement Practitioners, among others. Under this IDF Grant, the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) reviewed, revised, and improved the Modules previously developed by AIM based on the most recent local and international best practices in public procurement vis-à-vis the provisions of Republic Act No. 9184 and its revised Implementing Rules and Regulations and allied issuances.

After the successful pilot implementation of the Professionalization Program under the 2012 IDF Grant, the Modules have become the cornerstone of the formal academic program implemented by the GPPB-TSO in collaborations with venerable educational institutions, as initial step to jumpstart the streamlining of the Professionalization Program through an offering of a certificate program on public procurement, in three (3) levels – basic, intermediate and advanced.

Through a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) entered into with the GPPB-TSO on the first and second quarter of 2017, the following Universities committed to offer a certificate program on public procurement:

  • University of the Philippines (UP);
  • Central Luzon State University (CLSU);
  • Kalinga State University (KSU);
  • Cagayan State University (CSU);
  • Sultan Kudarat State University (SKSU); and
  • West Visayas State University (WVSU)
  • Beneficiaries
    • Procurement practitioners of the national government agencies, state colleges and universities, government-owned and -controlled corporations, local government units; and the private sector.
  • Status of Implementation
    • To date, three (3) Universities have commenced implementation of the certificate program on public procurement. University of the Philippines (UP) have already conducted 4 batches of Level I of the Certification Course with a total of 196 enrollees. It is currently conducting its first batch of Level II, with 49 enrollees. Kalinga State University (KSU) have conducted 1 batch of Level I with 46 enrollees. Central Luzon State University (CLSU) is currently running its first batch of Level I, with 39 enrollees.

2. Updating of the Agency Procurement Compliance and Performance Indicator (APCPI) System for Procuring Entities (Ongoing)

Description: The Agency Procurement Compliance and Performance Indicators (APCPI) System is a self-assessment tool approved by the GPPB in 2012 to be used by procuring entities. As a procurement monitoring and evaluation tool, the APCPI aims to provide the procuring entity’s stakeholders a glimpse of the current procurement environment using a set of indicators and sub-indicators relating to compliance with the existing legislative and regulatory framework, institutional capacity, market operations, integrity and transparency.

Since 2012, the APCPI is being implemented in all the Departments under the executive branch as well as a significant number of local government units, state universities and colleges, government-owned and controlled corporations, government financing institutions.

Due to changes in the OECD-DAC MAPS, effectivity of 2016 IRR of RA9184, and inputs from various stakeholders, the GPPB shall update the APCPI system accordingly.
