The PS-PhilGEPS Team
Officials and staff of the Procurement Service – Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System (PS-PhilGEPS) conducted its Annual Strategic Planning Activities last August 19 and 20, 2015 at Fontana Leisure Parks, Clark Freeport Zone, Angeles, Pampanga. The objectives of the activities were: (1) to assess and evaluate the plans and strategies for the year 2015 and calibrate them to achieve if not exceed goals and targets; and (2) to develop plans which will be translated into specific goals, objectives, strategies, programs and projects for 2016. It was also the opportunity for higher management to discuss the recently-approved reorganization of the PS-PhilGEPS.

He also mentioned that the organization must find ways to evolve by capacitating its people, working as a team with our partners as they are part of the supply chain and being outcome-focused and growth-oriented.
