As of July 2011
by Edgar E. Camenting, NAMFREL Project Coordinator

from NAMFREL Election Monitor Vol.2, No.17

.
Ten months since the implementation of Medicine Monitoring Project 2, NAMFREL was able to help ensure transparency in the procurement and contract implementation in selected DOH managed hospitals and regional health offices. With active participation of NAMFREL in the BAC procurement proceedings and in the implementation of contract, irregularities were minimized to make the procurement process more transparent and acceptable. 

A. Procurement Monitoring
As of July 29, 2011, NAMFREL monitored a total of Php 1.7 billion out of Php 2.7 billion pesos worth of the
Approved Budget for the Contract (ABC) both for pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical products.
Year Number of Biddings Recorded Number of Biddings Attended ABC Monitored ABC Unmonitored

2011 79 recorded 67 attended 748.3 million 379.7 million
Total Php 2.7 billion
.
These data were culled from 103 out of 136 public bidding activities in 28 DOH hospitals and Center for Health Development (CHD) directly monitored by NAMFREL volunteers.

B. Delivery Monitoring
NAMFREL has monitored a total of Php 163.0 million worth of drugs and medicines out of Php 426.6 million worth of procurement contract in 22 out of 28 DOH hospitals and CHDs.
