PRESIDENT RODRIGO R. DUTERTE

PRESIDENT RODRIGO R. Duterte has issued Administrative Order No. 14, streamlining the approval process for the procurement of government motor vehicles. In a phone message to BusinessWorld on Thursday afternoon, Dec. 13, Budget Undersecretary Laura B. Pascua said the AO stemmed from “the proposal by PS (Procurement Service) and GPPB (Government Procurement Policy Board),” which was also “presented to the Cabinet.” She added, “The Proposal is to consider motor vehicles as part of common supplies so that procurement and approval process are simplified.” Signed on Dec. 10, the AO, which the Palace released to reporters on Thursday, also directs the adoption of a centralized system on the procurement of government motor vehicles. — Arjay L.
