CEBU, Philippines — The Province of Cebu is in its final steps of outsourcing employees to replace the 2,992 job order and contractual workers it removed when Governor Gwendolyn Garcia returned to the Capitol almost three months ago.

The province will outsource workers from winning bidder LBP Service Corporation. It awarded the contract to LBP on September 10.

"Na-award na ni sa BAC (Bidding and Awards Committee)... and i-introduce pa ni namo sa Provincial Board (The Bids and Awards Committee has awarded the contract to LBP and we will introduce this to the Provincial Board)," said Provincial General Services Officer Bernard Calderon.

LBP will supply the province 443 medical personnel for 16 district and provincial hospitals and 359 clerical and non-medical personnel for the departments of the Provincial Government and hospitals.

LBP offered the winning bid of P176,661,042.12 for outsourcing medical personnel and P82,966,927.39 for non-medical personnel.

In its regular session today, the Provincial Board is expected to pass a resolution granting Garcia the authority to sign and execute the contract with LBP.

Commenting on the slight decrease in the number of non-medical personnel, Calderon said it is a necessary correction to make it 396. He assured that the provincial government will request for more personnel from LBP when the need arises.

“Sa contract actually is, although kani ra, pwede sad ni mo-increase as the need arises ra. Tan-awon namo… kung kuwang pa gyud, then pwede mi ka-increase (While this is what’s stipulated in the contract, we can increase the number as the need arises. We’ll see… if we really need more, we can get more)," Calderon said.

He added that they can also remove outsourced personnel anytime as provided for in the contract with LBP.

The Province of Cebu expects to fill in the vacant position by the first week of October. The contract will last for one calendar year. (FREEMAN)
