Procurement does not start with the preparation of the Annual Procurement Plan and ends with the issuance of the Notice of Award. Unfortunately, for a lot of procurement practitioners, procurement is viewed as a singular, compartmentalized process by itself. This view can be observed among many LGUs preparing procurement documents almost as an after- thought. This mentality has led to a lot of poorly conceptualized and poorly executed procurement activities which in some instances, resulted to suspension and even dismissal from government service of those involved.

An excellent procurement system recognizes the vital linkage between Planning, Budgeting and Procurement. This two-day best practices module is the only training of its kind that combines the various and diverse activities and the coordination of different offices of the LGUs including the Planning and Development Office, Budget Office, and BAC with its secretariat into one seamless whole. The seminar-workshop’s objective is to ensure LGUs are truly effective in getting approval for their budget plans and procurement requirements successfully. For the private sector, understanding the right process can be very useful so they may know how their products and services may be included as part of the LGU budget for procurement.
