Yesterday (10 June 2016), the Government bid its last public-private parntership before PNoy steps down this month and had only one (1) bidder for a PhP 1 billion IT project aimed at modernizing the civil registry operations of PSA (Philippine Statistics Authority).

However, the PPP deal, formally called the Civil Registry System-IT Project Phase 2, is now facing some delays with only one (1) bidder to move forward, Unisys Public Sector Services Corp.

PPP Center executive director, Andre Palacios said yesterday that the post-bid procedure followed a different process when there was just one offer to evaluate. He also said that the bid would require the approval of the Investment Coordination Committee of the National Economic and Development Authority, which would need to evaluate the rate of return.

Palacios told the reporters that “We were hoping that more than one would submit, so the process would be faster,” on the sidelines of the bid submission.

Two (2) other groups are the French-Filipino consortium of Morpho-Filmetrics-Frey and the Filipino-Japanese PNJ Partnership Consortium, were earlier pre-qualified but did not submit offers. Unisys, meanwhile, is the current IT system provider for the PSA.

The project was set to be awarded by July 26, 2016, or after President-elect Rodrigo Duterte assumes office. Palacios said that award target would no longer be met.

The PPP project called for the “computerization” of the civil registry operations of the PSA. It would be designed to collect, access, store, maintain and manage civil registry documents and the specimen signatures of all city and municipal registrars using imaging technology.

The Aquino administration would end its term with the awarding of 12 PPP deals, valued at over PhP 200 billion.
