To ensure that the National Power Corporation continuously abides to the revised Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act 9184, also known as the Government Procurement Reform Act (GPRA), a two-day seminar regarding the act was held on July 17 and 18 at NPC Function Halls.
The seminar was attended by all the members of the Bids and Awards Committee and the Technical Working Groups of NPC. Provisions in the act and its revised Implementing Rules and Regulations were discussed by Executive Director Atty. Dennis S. Santiago of the Government Procurement Policy Board; Mr. Joseph O. Vergara of Philippine Health Insurance Corporation’s Task Force on Corporate Center and Offices; and Atty. Peter Paul A. Soliva of Bids and Awards Committee Secretariat of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).
GPRA aims to encourage transparency, accountability and public monitoring in the procurement process, and competitiveness among eligible contracting parties.
