DND's JCPV Phase 3B project bidding now open

From the Philippine News Agency (Oct 6): DND's JCPV Phase 3B project bidding now open

In line with its efforts to ensure the seaworthiness and mission readiness of all Philippine Navy (PN) vessels, the Department of National Defense (DND) announced that it is opening the bidding for its JCPV Phase 3B acquisition project.

JCPV refers to the three Jacinto class patrol vessels currently in PN service.

The DND is allocating the sum of Php224,000,000 for the project. The money will be sourced from General Appropriation Act.

Phase 3B involves: " The restoration and sustainment of 76mm gun for one JCPV and upgrade of electro-optical fire control systems and sensors for one JCPV. "

Delivery of goods or the contract duration shall be within 20 months as per bidding documents.

Bid opening shall be on Oct. 27, 2015 at 11:30 a.m., at the DND-Bidding and Awards Conference Room, Basement, Left Wing, DND Building, Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.

Only system integrators who are themselves manufacturers of the main weapons system, the fire control system or the combat management system are eligible to participate in the bidding.

The JCPV is one of the most modern surface combatants of the PN.

These ships, three in number, were originally operated by the Royal Navy in Hongkong.

They were sold to the Philippines in August 1997 when Great Britain's lease on Hongkong ended.

Bid opening was earlier scheduled for March 10 but was put in abeyance pending the signing of the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program. The latter was signed last July 22.
