The 12 service vehicles procured through the PS will be distributed to TESDA’s Regional Offices to reinforce the implementation of their respective projects. The agency was able to incur savings as unit price is inclusive of freight to anywhere in the Philippines. Unit price is also inclusive of LTO registration for three years, Third Party Liability (TPL) Insurance, and GSIS Comprehensive insurance. As a freebie, the pickup trucks are ready to drive with full-tank diesel courtesy of the supplier.
To date, delivery of TESDA’s fleet of 12 motor vehicles is the largest since the PS started supplying motor vehicle requirements of government agencies.

Delivery of the units came 30 days after placing their order through the online ordering platform (http://bit.do/MVcataloge) and payment, a significant reduction in the usual three months procurement process – from the opening of bids up to the award of a contract if the agency will bid on their own.
The PS continues to partner with reliable goods and services providers to serve client agencies with utmost excellence as the office advance the government’s thrust to reform procurement system to ensure efficient and economic use of taxpayers’ money.
