Competitive bidding, policies, public procurement, RA 9184, suppliers.


This study identified factors of the procurement process and policies that affected suppliers’ decisions to refuse to participate in public procurement. The assessment of discernment is in the extent of suppliers’ company profiles and the procurement process and policies based on the 2016 Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act 9184. The study used a descriptive research design. A simple random sampling method was used to selected participants for the study. A combination of a checklist, free and scaled response questionnaire was used to collect responses. The researchers were able to disseminate questionnaires to the suppliers of different government agencies in the vicinity of the Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija. The study revealed that a huge number of the surveyed suppliers felt that participation in public procurement through a competitive bidding process would entail them with more obstacles and challenges than some alternative types of procurement. The study also found that the three most-cited factors affecting suppliers’ decisions to refuse in participating: the approved budget for the contract is usually too low, the time frame for the delivery is usually too short, and the process is too long.
