DAGUPAN CITY – The city’s Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) is inviting more suppliers and contractors to apply for accreditation with the city soon after Mayor Belen T. Fernandez appointed City Administrator Farah Marie G. Decano as chair of the newly reconstituted BAC.
The invitation is in compliance with Republic Act 9184 otherwise known as the “Government Procurement Reform Act” and its Implementing Rules and Regulations which prescribes the necessary procedures for the modernization, standardization and regulation of procurement activities of the government.
Decano replaced City Planning and Development Officer Engineer Romeo Rosario as chairman of the BAC after he retired from government service last January.
The creation of the BAC is mandated by the law in all branches, agencies, departments, bureaus, offices or instrumentalities of government including government-owned and/or controlled corporations, government financial institutions, state universities and colleges and local government units.
The other members of the newly reconstituted BAC are General Service Officer (GSO) Melchor Guiang, City Budget Officer Luz De Guzman, Engineer Josephine Corpuz of the City Engineering’s Office, and City Legal Officer George Mejia.
Fernandez also appointed Engineer Athena Arenas of the City Engineering’s Office as BAC Secretariat chairperson along with Rosie Macaranas and Steely Raga of the City Treasurer’s Office; Jocelyn Siapno, Manolita De Venecia and Executive Assistant IV Jocelyn C. Ibaan of the City Mayor’s Office as members.
She also designated Engineer Roland Suni as chairman of the Technical Working Group in the absence of City Engineer Virginia Rosario by virtue of Executive Order No. 1, 2016 until March 15.
The other members are Melchor Owen Tan, Executive Assistant III of the City Mayor’s Office, and Marieta Hortaleza of the City Budget Office.
Decano disclosed that all interested suppliers and contractors can apply at the city treasurer’s office and look for Rosie Macaranas for assistance and guidance. (Joseph C. Bacani/CIO/Feb. 17, 2016)
