PNP.GOV.PH: Philippine National Police


The Philippine National Police (PNP) reaffirms that the 1,470 units of Mahindra Enforcer, Single Cab 4x2, patrol jeeps went public bidding on January 2015 which was undertaken by the Procurement Service – Department of Budget Management (PS-DBM).

Together with Toyota, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, and Ford, the Columbian AutoCar Corporation (CAC) (Mahindra) attended a pre-bidding conference on January 21, 2015.

Opening and evaluation of bids were made on February 5, 2015 where the procurement of patrol jeeps was divided into four (4) lots where CAC won the four (4) lots as the single lowest calculated bidder (SLCB), however, Toyota Quezon Avenue manifested that it will file a motion for reconsideration for Lot 1 where it joined.

On February 26, 2015, opening of bids of patrol jeeps for financial envelope of Toyota Quezon Ave. for lot 1 was made because the Toyota’s motion for reconsideration was granted by the PS-DBM. However, the amount offered by Toyota which is Php 950,000 is still higher that the amount offered by CAC with Php 840,000 value per unit.

For Lot 2, only Mahindra submitted bid of Php 880,000 per unit; For Lot 3, only Mahindra submitted bid of Php 920,000 per unit; and For Lot 4, only Mahindra submitted bid of Php 920,000 per unit.

The prototype sample of CAC was found complying after final deliberation of the PS DBM. The vehicles passed the functional and endurance test ensuring that specifications provided by the PNP were followed accordingly; therefore, CAC was declared as the Single Calculated Responsive Bid (SCRB) on March 16, 2015.

Accordingly PS-DBM did not choose Columbian AutoCar Corporation (Mahindra), but it is the bidding process, under RA 9184, which chose Mahindra because it was able to offer the most competitive price.

PNP or DBM-PS is legally bound to follow RA 9184 which compels the government to choose the lowest price offered provided it meets the specifications.

RA 9184, or the government Procurement Reform Act, prohibits tailor fitting to a specific brand or discriminating on the basis of country of origin. By choosing the lowest price offered in this case by Mahindra, the government was able to save almost 100 Million Pesos which PNP can use to buy more patrol jeeps.

The PNP firmly believe that the procurement of Mahindra patrol jeeps conducted by no less than the PS-DBM is fair, transparent and advantageous to the Government. (PNP-PIO)
