To cope with the Covid-19 pandemic, the government issued new regulations to fulfill its mandate to implement the procurement of consulting services.

Learn government procurement processes and procedures on consulting services based on RA 9184, its 2016 IRR, and the recent issuances of the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB), its Technical Services Office (TSO), Guidelines in the formulation and revision of APP, Registration, Eligibility Requirements, Submission of Bids under the PhilGEPS, and many more!

This three-session training is intended both for public and the private sector. For government officials, join and update your knowledge to avoid getting into trouble. For those in the private sector who wants to offer consulting services to the government, enroll and learn all you can to avoid disqualification due to non-compliance!
