DPWH bans contractor over delayed school building project
February 13, 2020 - Thursday 6:02 PM by PNA
MANILA -- The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) on Monday warned contractors with delayed projects anew as it ordered the blacklisting of a contractor for its failure to finish on time a school building project in Cavite.
DPWH Secretary Mark Villar is hoping that the banning of St. Gerrard Construction, General Contractor and Development Corporation from participating in all government projects for one year should serve as a warning to other contractors.
"Let this be a warning that we will be banning more contractors who fail to deliver projects as stipulated in their contracts,” Villar said in a statement.
The contractor was temporarily banned due to more than 15 percent negative slippage on the construction of a 4-story school building project at Lumampong National High School–Indang Annex in Indang, Cavite.
“May we once again remind all contractors of DPWH that we are pushing for the timely realization of our ‘Build, Build, Build’ program nationwide and we will not tolerate any unreasonable delay in our projects,” Villar said.
Villar signed a department order blacklisting of St. Gerrard Construction on January 31.
DPWH Senior Undersecretary Rafael Yabut issued the subsequent blacklisting recommendation on January 24 for the delay in the implementation of the project.
The administrative sanction was imposed based on Republic Act 9184 otherwise known as the “Government Procurement Reform Act.” PNA
