Favorite contractor failed to finish previous project
NAME WITHHELD, La Trinidad, Benguet

A contractor appears to be the favorite of the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) of one of the provinces in the Cordillera over the other contractors.

A previously awarded project to this contractor was not finished on the target date of completion. While the target date of completion has lapsed, they were still working on the project, which could mean that the contractor requested for an extension. Given this situation, does it not reflect a poor performance of the contractor especially so that within the extension period they were not able to completely finish implementation? Will this not constitute slippage?

Recently, the same BAC awarded another project worth millions to this contractor despite his unsatisfactory drawback; not to mention a previous project awarded by one municipal local government unit, the acceptance of which was not signed because of the sub-standard implementation.

It comes to mind if the BAC, during the post-qualification, saw or observed if the contractor declared his previous ongoing contracts with one regional line agency and the municipal LGU, because if not, then why would he be awarded this project worth millions?
