An excellent procurement system recognizes the vital linkage between Planning, Budgeting and Procurement. There is no training being done by any government agency or group that combines these various and diverse activities into one seamless whole. The DILG and NEDA assists LGUs in formulation of their Development Plans, the DBM conducts trainings on local budgeting and procurement (as separate activities), and COA and the GPPB and some other training agencies or groups regularly conduct procurement training. BUT these trainings are compartmentalized and segmented.

This two-day best practices program is the only training of its kind that combines the various and diverse activities and the coordination of different offices of the LGUs including the Planning and Development Office, Budget Office and BAC with its secretariat. The seminar-workshop's objective is to ensure LGUs are truly effective in successfully getting approval for their budget plans and procurement requirements.

For the business sector, understanding the right processes on how a program or project can be properly funded would be very useful so companies may know how their products and services may be included as part of the LGU budget for procurement.

Course Description and Outline

This two-day best practices training program will discuss the formulation of the development plan as it relates to the preparation of the Annual Investment Program (AIP). The programming and coding mechanics in the preparation of the AIP will then be discussed in detail showing how this is linked to the subsequent preparation of the Annual Budget.

Once the planning, programming and budgeting documents are linked, the training will proceed with the preparation of the Annual Procurement Plan (APP) and the ancillary activities such as the preparation of the Approved Budget for the Contract (ABC), the Technical Specifications, Scope of Work and the like. It will highlight the procedures and documents that must be prepared and linked to ensure that the procurement requirements are adequately captured.

This module will include a focus on:

1. Discussion on the Planning, Budgeting and Procurement Linkage
2. How to come up with a reliable and reasonable Approved Budget for the contract.
3. Tips in preparing Technical Specifications and the Schedule of Requirements
4. How to conduct proper examination and evaluation of bids.

Day one will be lectures on the following topics:

1. Planning, Budgeting and Procurement Linkage
2. How to arrive at a relevant ABC
3. Tips on how to conduct proper examination and evaluation of bids

Day two will be a combination of lectures, case studies and workshop that will allow participants hands-on experience on how the documents (Development Plan, AIP, Budget and APP) are being prepared. A case will be presented to the participants and they will be forming into groups. Each group will be responsible with the development of a specific document. The process sequencing will mimic that of the actual process.

After the documents are prepared, each group will make a presentation of their output and a facilitator will guide the participants in the discussion that will follow.
