Zyralyn 12:59 AM, Sep 21, 2018

I am Zyralyn Oblefias, a Master in Development Economics student of the University of the Philippines under the PCED-DBM Careership Program. I am conducting a research about the "Impact of Improved Transparency in Government Procurement to the Government Expenditures in the Philippines''  as my academic requirement. I have visited the website of PhilGEPS website and found out that the data on the number of bidders per bid notice is not available for open access. In line with that, I would like to request a dataset which contains the number of bidders for each bid notice from 2000-2017.

Dear Ms. Oblefias,

The Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) and its Technical Support Office (TSO) is a separate government office from the Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System (PhilGEPS).  Thus, the administration of the PhilGEPS website is under the jurisdiction of the latter.  Hence, you may have to formally request the information from the PhilGEPS at its email address or personally visit its office at 6th Floor, Raffles Corporate Center, Ortigas Center, Pasig City to request access to the information you are seeking.

We hope to have provided clarification on the matter.

Thank you.
