- Pursuant to Resolution No. 10 dated June 1, 2012, the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) approved the adoption of the Agency Procurement Compliance and Performance Indicators (APCPI) as Standard Procurement Monitoring and Assessment Tool to be used by all procuring entities of the government. All procuring entities are mandated to conduct a yearly APCPI self-assessment and to submit the results of the assessment, using the prescribed format, to the GPPB Technical Support Office (TSO).
- The APCPI aims to:
- provide a standard procurement performance monitoring and evaluation tool for use by all procuring entities on a regular basis;
- identify strengths and weaknesses in the agency’s procurement systems and to develop an Action Plan for Procurement Improvement to address the areas of risks and weaknesses;
- utilize the information submitted by the agencies as part of the procurement database which will be linked to other government related databases to analyze national procurement performance for more effective policy and decision making; and
- assist in strengthening the GPPB-TSO capability in monitoring national compliance to procurement regulations and in implementing the agency level Action Plans.
- The APCPI Assessment Process is summarized below:
- The following prescribed data-gathering instruments shall be used in the conduct of APCPI assessment:
