Capitol to put up tanks to catch rainwater

CEBU, Philippines- The Cebu provincial government will be putting up tanks at its facilities to help catch and store rainwater.

The tanks, which are worth P756,000, will be installed at the Cebu South Bus Terminal, Cebu Provincial Rehabilitation and Detention Center, Museo Sugbo, and the main and legislative buildings at the Capitol compound.

Romeo Manansala, jail warden of CPDRC, said the rainwater catchment method will help save water, especially that the facility houses a total of 2,360 inmates.

He added that the stored water could be recycled and used by the inmates for washing clothes, bathing, and flushing toilet bowls.

“Wa man hinuon ta naglisod og tubig diri pero mas maayo nang maka-save ta sa tubig,” Manansala said.

The Provincial Board yesterday gave Governor Hilario Davide III the go signal to sign a contract, on behalf of the provincial government, with the supplier, Celedio Construction Builders and Supply, for the mounting of the rainwater tanks.

The Capitol’s Bids and Awards Committee had recommended that the contract be awarded to the supplier through a negotiated procurement.

The BAC noted that there was no interested bidder that responded to their invitation to bid for the supply of labor and materials, and incidentals for the putting up of tanks, which prompted the committee to declare the bidding a failure and recommended a negotiated procurement for the labor and materials, as provided under the revised Government Procurement Act.

Under the law, a negotiated procurement will only be allowed when there has been failure of public bidding for the second time.

“The committee has found the documents submitted by the abovementioned supplier in order and there is a need to implement the said project,” part of the PB resolution reads.

“The execution of the contract agreement by and between the Province of Cebu and Celedio Construction Builders and Supply is advantageous to the interest of the province and in accordance with the applicable laws and government rules and regulations,” it reads further.  (FREEMAN)
