(2) Procurement Procedure
For purchases not exceeding $5,000
Goods and services not exceeding the SVP limit of $5,000 can be purchased directly from the suppliers without having to call for quotations.
Purchases above $5,000 but not exceeding $100,000
For goods and services up to $100,000 in value, departments must call for quotation. A simplified quotation process requiring minimum 3 quotes can be adopted for purchases not exceeding $15,000. The quotation can be called manually or through the Government Electronic Business (GeBIZ) system, an integrated one stop e-procurement portal that allows GeBIZ registered suppliers (i.e. trading partners) to interact with the Government for its procurement activities.
For purchases above $15,000 but not exceeding $100,000, these should be procured via open quotation in GeBIZ Invitation-to-Quote module (also known as Self Service Buy). Departments can also purchase such goods and services from established period contracts via GeBIZ Catalogue Buy or Framework Agreement.
For purchases above $100,000
Tender must be called for purchases above $100,000 through the GeBIZ Invitation-to-Tender module or alternatively, purchased from period contracts in the Catalogue Buy or Framework Agreement. For tenders, contact Mr. Chionh.
