In line with its continuing effort to integrate mental health initiatives in all its human resource and organizational development policies and programs, the Procurement Service of the Department of Budget and Management (PS-DBM) formally launched its Mental Health Program (MHP) on 11 December 2020 via Zoom.
Employees and officials of PS-DBM were encouraged to “unplug and regroup without feeling guilty” by participating in what was tagged as a “break” from their regular Friday work schedule.
The 20-minute online event, while relatively brief, was successful in imparting the message that MHP advocates: Make mental health a priority in the workplace.
Organized and facilitated by the Human Resource Development Division (HRDD), the program officially commenced with a message from DBM Secretary Wendel E. Avisado.
The Procurement Service of the Department of Budget and Management (PS-DBM) has received reports that there are individuals and entities who disguise themselves as representatives of PS-DBM to illegally solicit money from bidders.
Following the signing of contract between the Procurement Service of DBM (PS-DBM) and the new fulfiller of Microsoft (MS) requirements, MS software and subscriptions are now available again for procurement as CSE in PS-DBM.
Please note, however, that PS-DBM will also be implementing a cut-off for the receipt of funds from 15 to 30 December 2020. Read more about that here: bit.ly/33Wi2en
