Procurement Service organizes a relief operation in Batangas to give assistance to the affected communities following the eruption of Taal Volcano.
Taal’s volcanic activity might have weakened, but the spirit of “bayanihan” only continues to strengthen.
And if there’s one sector which should be at the forefront of any mobilization of efforts, it must be the government. The Procurement Service (PS) — an attached agency of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) — is apprised of this.
Suppliers, contractors, and consultants attend the 4th BSP Procurement Opportunities Fair to learn more about procurement opportunities with the government.
The emergence of digital platforms has made the processing of transactions more convenient. And all industries — whether private or government-regulated — are expected to welcome this development.
In an effort to cope with the procedural changes it demands, the Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System (PhilGEPS) of the Department of Budget and Management’s (DBM) Procurement Service (PS) has heeded the call of digitalization, and is now in the process of modernizing the system.
The Procurement Service (PS) — an attached agency of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) — welcomes Undersecretary Lloyd Christopher Lao as its new Officer-in-Charge effective January 2, 2020.
