November 26, 2018 – The National Irrigation Administration Region IV-A conducts Training Workshop on Contractors Performance Evaluation System (CPES) at Ouan’s Farm Resort, Lucena City, Quezon, November 26-29, 2018.
The 4-day training workshop is part of the Revised Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) 9184 or the Government Procurement Reform Act under Section 12.
It requires all procuring entities implementing Government Infrastructure projects to evaluate the performance of their contractors using the NEDA-approved CPES guidelines for the type of project being implemented, in NIA’s case – the irrigation projects.
“This training workshop will be an instrument for an improved delivery of services particularly to our Filipino farmers.”, said NIA Regional Manager Romeo Lopez.
RM Lopez said that this new mechanism will enable NIA to implement quality projects as it ensures all the government infrastructure projects to conform to specified requirements and standards.
“Magkakaroon na ng centralized database of information sa ating mga contractors para mabilis nating malaman kung ang mga sumasali ba na contractors sa ating mga projects ay talagang maayos at maaasahan.”, he added.
The system is part of the government efforts to build more quality infrastructure projects in a more efficient way.
