The Procurement Service-PhilGEPS (PS-PhilGEPS) will soft launch and implement use of its Retail Store starting Monday, June 1, 2015.
The Retail Store will cater to procurement of small quantities of commonly used office supplies and equipment (CSE). As opposed to Big Box purchases which will be catered by the PS-PhilGEPS’ main warehouses, government buyers of small value CSEs no longer have to fall in line with bulk buyers to be serviced and get their purchases.

Related to this, the PS-PhilGEPS will also be implementing use of the new electronic Agency Procurement Request (APR) forms. The APR Form 01 (click link for downloading the APR Form 01 and User Guide) for the procurement of CSEs in retail and in big box from its Main Office in Paco, Manila where the Retail Store is initially being implemented.
