The Procurement Service (PS) and the Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System (PhilGEPS) is adopting a unified logo that will be utilized in its websites and all graphical representations like office, marketing and communication materials.
The PS is an attached agency under the Department of Budget and Management. Created under Letter of Instructions No. 755 on October 18, 1978, it was mandated to establish an integrated procurement system for the national government and its instrumentalities. Subsequent issuances by the Office of the President through the years further strengthened the PS mandate and prescribed its expansion through a network of regional depots. PS is headed by an Executive Director IV and is the government’s central purchaser of commonly-used supplies, materials and equipment. It also acts as Procurement Agent for other government agencies for non-commonly used and wide-ranging items - from textbooks, school furniture, drugs and medicines, agricultural equipment, softwares, consultancy and infra projects to vehicles and things as complex as combat gears, ammunitions and airport security equipment. The PS logo is representative of the brick and mortar aspect of the business of government procurement as it operates the procurement and distribution of government’s diverse needs.
