“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” - This is a quote from Abraham Lincoln that best fits what the PS-PhilGEPS has recently required its procurement units to undergo. In preparation for the huge procurement tasks that it is about to take for 2017, the PS-PhilGEPS conducted its Procurement Professionalization Workshop and Assessment at Piña Colina Resort, Tagaytay City on January 25-27.
The workshop was attended by the members of the Office of the Executive Director, Bids and Awards Committee (BAC), BAC Support Division, Purchasing Division-Procurement Planning and Procurement Support Team. The workshop aims to capacitate and update the participants with the latest updates on practices, laws, rules and regulations on government procurement. Engr. Ian T. Fajarito summarized the objective of the workshop by sharing a very witty and fitting mnemonic, “B-est Practices, A-ccountability and C-amaraderie.”
