Capitol to use fuel cards system
(The Freeman) - October 22, 2019 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines — At least two major oil companies have already signified their interest to be the fuel-provider for the upcoming fleet cards system for the Capitol service vehicles.

Provincial General Services Officer Bernard Calderon revealed that Petron and Phoenix have already given their presentations during the Economic Enterprise Council Meeting last October 16.

In the same meeting, Governor Gwendolyn Garcia announced that the Province of Cebu will now transition into a cashless fuel scheme. This, according to Calderon, will strengthen the monitoring of fuel transactions because all the data will be encoded in the fleet cards. And since the process will no longer involve cash, the new system is expected to be less susceptible to abuse.

Calderon also stressed that the bidding process is open to all companies but only one will be awarded by the Province of Cebu.

“Actually this is open to all our industry players sa fuel nato, oil. Dili lang ni ingon limited lang to Petron or Phoenix. Once naa na ang terms of reference ana, open to all na na nga naay fleet card,” Calderon said.

He added that terms and conditions for this new fuel scheme by the Province of Cebu is still up for drafting.  He also added that a control system will be drafted to make sure that the fleet cards will not be used for non-official means.

“We will come up with an internal control system aron mamonitor nato nga wala’y abuse,” Calderon said.

This fuel scheme for the provincial service vehicles is eyed for full implementation in January 2020.

As for the personnel of the Capitol’s fuel depot, Calderon said that some will be reassigned to other offices while others will be terminated. The office currently has six employees, five of them are casual and outsourced employees. Only the office head is a regular employee. (FREEMAN)
