Comelec cancels P690-M contract for ballot folders

Posted by akosistella on April 5, 2010


The decision was announced a day after Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Pimentel Jr. revealed that the poll body bought nearly two million ballot secrecy folders at an overpriced rate of P380 each.

Last March 8, the Bids and Awards Committee BAC of the Comelec recommended the awarding of the contract to the OTC Paper Supply company for 1,815,000 pieces of 25-inch long secrecy folders that are supposed to hold the ballots on election day.

But in a three-page resolution promulgated Monday, the poll body recalled the awarding of the contract, which had yet to be signed, saying that it had found some irregularities in the deal.
