Many public officials as well as private entities dealing with government get into trouble due to violation and ignorance of the procurement law.

This program is designed to address the clamor of many public officials and private business organizations – Suppliers, Contractors, Consultants – that are dealing or will be dealing with the government to provide them a comprehensive understanding of the Government Procurement Act (RA 9184) and its Implementing Rules & Regulations (IRR). You will learn valuable insights on the bidding process for procurement of (1) infrastructures, (2) goods, and (3) services, the BAC, bidders accountabilities, disqualification, remedies, protest mechanisms, contract implementation, best practices and red flags.

With the intensified campaign of the government to unearth irregularities, compliance and prevention is one of the best defenses of public officials and private entities against any criminal and/ or administrative accountabilities.
