The Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office- Cordillera Administrative Region (DA-RFO-CAR) conducted an orientation to the contractors and suppliers of the agency on Republic Act 9184 and the new guidelines of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).

The orientation was held at the DA Conference hall, last February 19, 2018.

Chief of Administration and Finance, Mr. Clyde Waytan discussed the salient features of the 2016 Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act No. 9184, otherwise known as the Government Procurement Reform Act to inform the contractors and suppliers regarding the 1-year cash budgeting.

Regional Executive Director Narciso Edillo wanted the contractors and suppliers for the DA-RFO-CAR to deliver good quality services. He hopes that with the orientation, the participants were updated on the new guidelines of the DBM and unwanted issues on contracts and quality of work will be avoided.

He asked the contractors and suppliers to help the country and beneficiaries of the DA for the smooth implementation of the 1-year cash budgeting.

After the orientation, ready contracts were signed by suppliers and contractors with RED Edillo witnessed by Engr. Filemon Salvador, Chief of Regional Agricultural Engineering Division (RAED), Mr. Waytan (Admin and Finance), and BAC Secretariat Arnel Javier.// Karen T. Gawigawen
