Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) recently delivered Multi-Purpose Vehicles (MPV) to the Department of Health (DOH) through the Procurement Service (PS) — an attached agency of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).
Through the centralized procurement of motor vehicles at PS-DBM, agencies can order the vehicles via online and have it delivered to the agency doorstep after validation and payment of request. This initiative aims to further streamline the process of procuring motor vehicles while “maintaining the principles of economy, efficiency, and check and balances.”
The total number of approved units to be delivered by MMPC to PS-DBM are 232 units L300 with FB Body and 33 units Xpander GLX Plus AT through CitiMotors Makati and Diamond Motors Fairview, respectively.
In a ceremony held at the DOH’s grounds, MMPC handed over four (4) units of L300 to Health Secretary Francisco Duque. The Secretary cited how dependable and efficient the L300 is throughout the years, which is why he considers the new Euro 4 L300 units as a welcome addition to their fleet.
PS-DBM Executive Director Ms. Elisa May Arboleda-Cuevas also expressed her satisfaction to the smooth transaction and efficient delivery of the vehicles.
Being one of the partners of PS, we support the government’s thrust to reform the government procurement system and ensure transparency, efficiency, and economic use of tax payer’s money.
Aside from DOH, MMPC is set to deliver more units to various agencies with vehicle requirements from PS-DBM in the coming months.
