BOC eyes yearend award of first contract under Customs Modernization Project

The Bureau of Customs (BOC) expects to award by year-end the first contract under the Philippines Customs Modernization Project (PCMP), according to Assistant Commissioner Atty. Vincent Philip Maronilla.

“We are [in] the final stages already of our first procurement under the PCMP, which is the procurement of a Project Supervision and Quality Assurance Services (PSQA),” Maronilla told PortCalls in a text message.

“Through the PSQA, we hope to get better traction on our procurement for the CPS[customs processing system],” he added.

Procurement for the CPS, which is an important component of the PCMP, meanwhile, is eyed for the first quarter of next year.
