Three members of the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) of the National Conciliation and Mediation Board-Cordillera Administrative Region participated in the Training on Republic Act No. 9184 and its 2016 Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations on October 9-10, 2018 at the Baguio Crown Legacy Hotel, Kisad Road, Baguio City.

Ms. Alicia H. Bañares, Lyla Jane B. Tacio and Mr. Marcial T. Pasing, completed the two-day training conducted by the Association of Local Budget Administrators and the Department of Budget and Management (CAR).

“The activity was informative especially the topic on bidding since the Branch never used such mode”, says Ms. Bañares who sits as the BAC Vice-Chair.  Mr. Pasing, on the other hand, wishes for a full implementation of the issuance in all facets of the government to combat corruption.

The seminar paved way for the personnel to benchmark with other BAC members of other national line agencies, local government units and state colleges and universities.

RA 9184 or the Government Procurement, enacted in early 2003, is laid on the principle of transparency in the procurement process and in the implementation of procurement contracts in the government.
