Request for Documents

Post by Baladette on Tue Apr 03, 2012 3:32 pm

We placed a request for Financial Statement of a bidder addressed to the Revenue Officer. Upon receipt of the letter, the admin chief told us that we must have an authorization from the bidder to request for such document. Going back to the BIR, we brought OMNIBUS SWORN STATEMENT which says, "5. [Name of Bidder] is authorizing the Head of the Procuring Entity or its duly authorized representative(s) to verify all the documents submitted;" The admin chief told us that there is a recent circular prohibiting any person or entity from requesting Financial Statement of another person or entity. What we should bring daw was Special Power of Attorney, or should we request the bidder to ask for the document and submit it to us.

What's the use of OMNIBUS SWORN STATEMENT?What does "verify" mean in the omnibus?

Based on that omnibus statement, you can verify with the BIR if the bidder has really submitted its duly audited financial statement as allegedly receipted by the BIR on its face (with stamped receipt by BIR), but you really cannot request for a copy of such document from BIR.

The authorization in the omnibus statement is only to verify and also to inspect the bidder's books in its office but not those submitted to other offices as it could be in violation of some confidentiality rules.

as part of the eligibility requirements, bidders are required to submit the Audited financial statements and duly stamped “received” by the Bureau of Internal Revenue, I believe the verificaton is limited to checking the authenticity of the "stamped received" on the face of the FS submitted to the BIR. It is not absolute authority given to the HOPE of the procuring agency but with limitation. bounce
