Card system for fuel supply at Capitol soon

CEBU, Philippines — A new refueling scheme set to save public funds is now one step closer to being implemented for all Capitol-owned vehicles.

Last Monday, February 17, the Provincial Board approved a resolution authorizing Governor Gwendolyn Garcia, in behalf of the Cebu Provincial Government, to sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Petron Corporation.

 “There must be an award given to Petron. Thereafter, tagaan na ug mga card ang mga sakyanan. Wala na mi dihay depot,” provincial treasurer Roy Salubre said.

Salubre added that Garcia is set to sign the contract with Petron next week and the implementation of the new system will then follow soon after.

In this system, Capitol vehicles can now refuel in any Petron station instead of having to travel back to the Capitol fuel depot. The drivers assigned to the vehicles will now only have to present their fleet cards to be able to refuel in any of the Petron stations.

The Capitol has allocated P28,236,000 for the supply of fuel, oil, lubricants and minor maintenance for 243 diesel and 93 gasoline fueled motor vehicles owned by the provincial government of Cebu. The contract will last for one year, with a scheduled monthly billing.

This scheme was first thought of to monitor the fuel consumption of the vehicles and to save on budget allocated to fuel.

“Ang mahitabo ani, dili kaayo ta magsige’g maintain ug mga tawo. Ikaduha, assured ta sa quality sa fuel. Unya lain pa, ato man gud i-implement nga basahon gyud ang odometer,” Salubre said.

Bernard Calderon, the Provincial General Services Office Head, said that Petron was the lone bidder for the fleet card system.  FPL (FREEMAN)
