LGUs directly procure Covid-19 vaccines

It will not be useful to give close by government units (LGUs) the chance to mastermind the quick obtaining of Covid-19 antibodies as this will “overwhelm” the giving medication associations, a head said Thursday.


Yung interesting interpretation namin, inaalam namin yung direct procurement kasi energy nga namin mother connect with yung close by governments na dumirecho sa supplier (Our extraordinary structure, we were exploring if the quick acquisition since we expected to empower the local government to clearly get their vaccines.),” Quirino Rep. Junie Cua told columnists in a gathering as for House Bill No. 8648

Pero noong inimbita namin yung mga accomplices, lalo na yung NTF , DOH , na pinaliwanag, ang sabi naman mahirap kung ang LGU, kanya-kanyang lapit sa pharma association, mao-overwhelm yung pharma association,” he added.

In any case, when we invited our accomplices, especially the NTF and DOH, they said that it would be hard if LGUs will direct get it from drug associations. They will be overwhelmed.

Hindi yan kakayanan ng pharma associations. Magiging magulo, at kung kanya-kanya throb bili, ang volume confined, edi lahat tayo magko-fight, tataas na yung presyo,” he further said.Pharma associations couldn’t manage it. It would perplex if they will get it all alone separately. The volume is confined. By then we as a whole would fight in getting the vaccinations, the costs will go up.

So hindi realistic na narealize namin na may punto kaya ang nangyari na imbes na I-direcho, ang magne-orchestrate public government through the NTF or DOH.”

What we comprehended that it was not feasible, so that is the explanation instead of direct procurement, it’s either the NTF or DOH who will deal in light of a legitimate concern for the LGUs.

House Bill No. 8648, recorded by Speaker Lord Allan Velasco, Majority Leader Martin Romualdez, and Minority Leader Joseph Stephen Paduano, attempts to give LGUs special cases for the acquisition essentials set by Republic Act 9184 or the Government Procurement Reform Act. The measure covers the quick purchase by LGUs of Covid-19 antibodies and other genuinely vital supplies during the pandemic.

During the interpellation for House Bill No. 8648, Cua added that a three sided deal between the public government and close by government concerning purchasing Covid-19 inoculations in medication firms is “unavoidable.”
