Folder supplier may get ultraviolet lamp contract
Posted by akosistella on April 8, 2010
MANILA, Philippines – The company that nearly bagged a P689-million contract to supply ballot secrecy folders to the Commission on Elections Comelec could end up winning the contract to supply ultraviolet lamps
OTC Paper Supply submitted the lowest bid of P28 million to supply the lamps that will be used to scan security markings in the ballots, besting two other companies, GMA 7 News reported last night.
Manager Henry Young of OTC Paper said the company might withdraw its bid for the UV lamps if the Comelec would allow it to do so without slapping the company with a fine. He said he had not yet been notified by the Comelec Bids and Awards Committee BAC that his company had won the lamp deal.
