The PhilGEPS is the central portal of all public procurement activities that provides both government agencies and suppliers a more open, transparent and competitive environment.

The Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System (PhilGEPS)

With the coming of the information age, new technologies started to thrive. The passage of the Electronic Commerce Act of 2000 provided the impetus for e-government under a global concept.

In response to the challenge of e-government, the Government Electronic Procurement System or the G-EPS, was launched on November 22, 2000 through E.O. No. 322, and the Implementing Rules and Regulations of E..O No. 262 issued on October 10, 2000.

The G-EPS is an integral part of the comprehensive government procurement reform program designed to improve transparency, efficiency and value for money. The pilot system now in place is an information site consisting primarily of a Public Tender Board, Electronic Catalogue, and a

Supplier Registry.

The G-EPS serves as the official system to advertise and distribute specifications for public bidding opportunities and also contains information related to doing business with the government such as rules and regulations, press releases, a directory of government agencies and contacts, planned and historical agency procurement, bid matching for suppliers, potential competitors, winning bidders, and a frequently asked questions section. The next step is to make other aspects of the procurement process available to all stakeholders like the Virtual Store which supports online procurement of both common and non-common use items; the Electronic Payment; Charges and Fees or the User Fees which is charged for system usage and downloading of bid documents; and, the Electronic Bid Submission.

Now called the PhilGEPS, it is considered to be the bridge and source of information on the procurement of common goods, civil works and general support services, is now being upgraded to conform with the many and varying requirements of time and clients.

Aha.  With the improved traceability and documentation brought about by the electronization of the AFP, that will HOPEFULLY minimize corruption. 

I wonder what the AFP will be able to afford, though?  The industry, and I mean almost all industries out there, standard is SAP.  But SAP is expensive, and not easy to train and maintain. 

The AFP should see what the other more developed Asian countries out there are using, like Singapore, or Malaysia, and perhaps ask their help also.

Maybe some of the Singaporean or Malaysian posters here can help:  What e-procurement system are their armed forces using right now?

PhilGEPS is actually used by the entire government, not just the AFP. All government offices, from national to local, use this system.

The government entity that runs PhilGEPS is the Procurement Service (http://www.procurementservice.org/psdbm/index.php)

Sorry about my previous statements, but after reading Adroth's links, it seems to me that the PhilGEPS is a CUSTOMIZED EPS system, and not one of the systems more commonly found in other industries these days.  Which is not necessarily bad, of course.  We just don't know its capability at this point, or how good it is at keeping traceability of the transactions, etc.  Still, any move towards a faster, more efficient and more documented way of transacting business with the suppliers is always a welcome move.

Insights into who developed PhilGEPS

DBM Unfazed?
By Michael Alan Hamlin
April 28, 2003

http://www.teamasia.com/media/2003/04282003.htm

Department of Budget & Management (DBM) assistant secretary Eduardo P. Opida is unfazed that rights to an e-procurement solution the government intends to purchase for P250 million are in dispute. "According to the contract's provisions, the government will be held free by the contracting partners from any individual claims made against any of them," he said. As usual, Opida misses the point.

The dispute, you'll recall, involves an e-procurement solution offered to government by a consortium of companies led by Hong Kong-based EWETC. EWETC says it developed the technology in the Philippines using Filipino engineers. However, Veronex, Inc., which is presently headquartered in Canada, claims it funded the development of the EWETC solution to the tune of US$8 million, paid for EWETC's Filipino engineers to be trained in the U.S., and paid other sums to EWETC's president, Thomas J. Price, first as an employee, and later as a joint venture partner. Price was formerly president and COO of Veronex. The claims are made by David Hite, chairman and CEO of Veronex.

In the interest of full disclosure, some of my clients participated in the bidding for the government's e-procurement system, and lost.

So what does Opida miss, or ignore, as the case may be? For starters, as in all legal disputes, claimants will follow the money. According to public documents on file with the SEC, three of the companies in the consortium EWETC leads - ABC Consulting, Infomediary, and EWETC itself - have negative net working capital as calculated by DBM's Net Financial Contracting Capacity formula. Thanks to Right Computer Systems, net working capital for the consortium as a whole is around P150 million, which incidentally, is less than that required by DBM for qualified bidders for the project in the first place.

But the principal point is that if the EWETC consortium - which calls itself iTBF - is awarded the contract, EWETC will suddenly become an attractive target for Veronex, which may try to recover its investment. Despite his claim, there is good reason that should be a concern to Opida, and the government. A judgment in Veronex's favor, as anyone who has been involved in cross-border legal disputes knows, can be fairly easily implemented in the Philippines and even more easily in Hong Kong, where EWETC is registered.

Although Opida argues that the EWETC consortium is contractually obligated to indemnify government against any claims, that's going to be cold comfort if EWETC is left without an e-procurement technology or the financial wherewithal to provide one to the government, as a result. While that outcome may be far from certain at this point, dismissing the prospect is incredibly irresponsible.

If DBM goes ahead with its contract with the EWETC consortium, it will be knowingly contracting for intellectual property whose ownership is under vigorous - some say convincing - dispute. I don't know of any organization that would enter a contract under such circumstances, especially one as strategically important as the government's e-procurement initiative.

But there are even better business reasons for caution. Although DBM claims it did a full due diligence with respect to EWETC and the technology it is offering, in fact the solution appears to have never been sold previously, and EWETC's rather crude website offers no reference sites, no client list, and no testimonials, typical features for any legitimate firm with a legitimate technology and real clients.

In fact, as I've previously noted, Price himself has publicly claimed that EWETC developed its e-procurement solution over a two year period on spec for the Philippine government, despite the fact that there was no guarantee that the government would purchase the solution. For a startup with a shaky balance sheet, that's a pretty gutsy move. And it confirms that this is an untested solution, and that the Philippine government appears to be the only taker for EWETC's technology.

So let's see. We don't know if EWETC owns the technology it's trying to sell, and second, we don't know if it works. Does that leave you unfazed?

P250 million for a procurement system?  The manufacturing company I used to work for in Laguna spent only P100 million to get SAP (the leading ERP software in the world) in 2004.  And take note, SAP is an ERP, meaning it applied not only to the procurement system, but also to other departments like Production, Material Management, etc. 

'Eto procurement lang, P250 million na agad?'  But then again, that manufacturing firm I worked for only had a couple of hundred users.  I reckon the government has more? 

Just giving everybody sort of a comparison out there.

As for SAP, the oil company I'm working for now here abroad is using SAP.  Shell Philippines is using SAP.

oh, this is good, a centralized procurement system...
suggested this before to trilla in one of his "websites"
a ONE online and transparent procurement system wherein govt. post their needs, then bidders post their bids and the public can see the transaction
also, the govt. can invite NGOs and other "overseeing" organizations like timawa to compare notes on prices whether it is correct or not(reasonable prices) and some experts in the fields to see if the specs are right like IT (remember the 40k laptops), engineering (see if they are designing it correctly and using the right materials, gun experts (views from gun experts and tacticians) and other fields which public and non-government point of view are needed - and then the government hear the side of the contradicting party before a purchase. by then it will be a good system.


also, an overseer (a NGO) to see and recommend  if there is really a need to purchase new equipments and replace the "old" one - heard a news of a govt. office who "regularly" purchase equips to "generate" money for themselves.

hope this move starts the ball rolling for a corruption-less bidding process
