In December 2014, PhilGEPS communicated that aside from the archiving of prior years’ procurement data in the PhilGEPS website, the Virtual Store facility which is the online store for the purchase of commonly used supplies and equipment from the Procurement Service will also be temporarily disabled. These measures were employed to enable ease of use both by government agencies and merchants in the posting and downloading of bid information in website and to mitigate the frequent slowdown and unavailability of the website.

The PS-PhilGEPS management has decided that it will be best to disable the virtual store facility in the present system and to implement the updated Virtual Store that is currently being developed within the modernized PhilGEPS which is set for implementation within 2015. As such, all VS user accounts will be temporarily disabled and the VS will not be available for use except for the Electronic Catalogue that can be accessed both in the PS and PhilGEPS website for reference as to the list, prices and detailed specifications of items available from the Procurement Service. Nonetheless, all APRs for the procurement of Common-Use Supplies will be received and processed manually thru the Agency Servicing Division (ASD) of the Procurement Service.

For queries on this matter, government agencies may call Mr. Robert Daleja of the ASD of the Procurement Service at telephone numbers (02) 563-9352 or 689-7750 local 4019, or send an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Please be guided accordingly.

Thank you.
