As part of its capacity-building activities, the Procurement Service – Department of Budget and Management (PS-DBM) facilitated a series of training sessions with client-agencies through the PS-Client Learning Engagement (PS-CLE) program organized by the Customer Service (CS) Team of the agency’s Marketing and Sales Division (MSD).

With focus on logistics, warehouse management, and other PS-DBM updates, the training sessions were conducted both online and in person among supply, property, and budget officers of various client-agencies.

On January 10, 2024, by request of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Directorate for Logistics, students of the PNP 26-day Basics Logistics Course — comprised of Non-Commissioned Police Officers and Non-Uniformed Personnel — assigned in the PNP Command Group, Area Police Commands, Directorial Staff, Personnel Staff, and National Support Unit visited PS-DBM Main Office in Paco, Manila for a warehouse tour. This included a lecture on the agency’s best practices on warehouse management and inspection procedures including delivery, inspection, and acceptance of goods.

Apart from MSD, Procurement Management Officers from PS-DBM Warehousing and Delivery Division as well as Inspection Division took part in the extensive discussions aimed to develop the students’ competencies, skills, and values in logistics management resulting in an increased quality of their organization’s logistic services.

The PS-CLE can also be virtually facilitated. On January 16, 2024, MSD-CS via Google Meet trained the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) on the use of the Virtual Store (VS) — the one-stop online platform of the modernized Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System (mPhilGEPS) to select, view, search, and procure Common-use Supplies and Equipment (CSE). The BJMP representatives were made aware of the streamlined CSE procurement from VS, its features and functionalities, and eWallet funding through a live simulation.

In earlier sessions, more than 100 representatives from a total of 55 government agencies nationwide took part in PS-CLE, including the Bureau of Internal Revenue, Department of Foreign Affairs, Batanes State College, Philippine Normal University, City Government of Tanauan, Batangas, and Municipality of Cavinti, Laguna, among others. This activity, held on November 23 and December 14, 2023, was specifically tailored to tackle year-end updates such as inventory and fund balances.

PS-DBM, through these information-sharing initiatives, is relentless in strengthening its partnership and collaboration with key stakeholders — a crucial contributor to the fulfillment of the agency’s transformative 12-point agenda.
