Provincial Administrator Atty. Rayfrando Diaz reported yesterday that the Capitol Procurement Service Depot performance in terms of sales and collection last year was higher compared to 2021.
In terms of PS Depot collections, it exceeded 2021 collections by P2,636,936.63, Diaz said.
With regards to sales, it also surpassed 2021 sales by P4,064,793.12, he added.
The Procurement Service Depot of the province is jointly managed by the Dept. of Budget and Management (DBM) – Procurement Service – PhilGEPS and the provincial government of Negros Occidental.
Its clients are the different provincial government offices, local government units, as well as national government agencies, among others.
Their products include common office supplies, devices, equipment, janitorial supplies, electrical supplies and accessories.
The PS Depot is performing better than ever due to our centralized apps, Diaz said, as he also noted improvements in the delivery of supplies from DBM-PS Manila to the provincial government.
Diaz also reported that the provincial government got a refund of P10.6 million from DBM-PS Manila, on supplies purchased by the provincial government but had not been delivered, for the period starting December 2014, up to last year.
The Procurement Service is mandated for the operation of a government-wide procurement system established through LOI No. 755 and existing under EO 285 and 395.
The provincial government PS Depot is headed by Arnel Argusar, who was recently promoted as head of the Capitol General Service Office.*
