The Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System or PhilGEPS is an online portal where business and contractors can access the requirements for government procurement. It was established to automate the procurement process and to strengthen transparency in government contracts. They also help suppliers address different issues related to bidding submissions and adherence to the procurement procedure.
National government agencies, government-owned and controlled corporations, government financial institutions, state universities and colleges, as well as local government units are all required to use the platform.
Suppliers, manufacturers, consultants, and contractors should also register to bid.
The following are the steps in creating a PhilGEPS account:
Go to www.philgeps.gov.ph and select “Register” at the upper right corner of the website.
Select your business operation type and civil society organization (CSO) from the drop-down menus and click submit.
Then, fill out the required fields for your registration.
Once done, wait for the confirmation email, including an assigned username and password.
However, registration is not automatic. You need to wait for the confirmation email before you can gain access, which typically takes 24 to 48 hours.
There are two membership types you can use:
Once registered, you automatically get a free membership. It allows you to access government procurement projects through the PhilGEPS website. However, you cannot bid using a free account.
Platinum membership allows you to view procurement projects and bid through the website. It will also get you an issued certificate required for most government procurement contracts. The platinum membership fee of PhilGEPS costs PHP 5,000 annually.
