The Department of Information and Communications Technology’s vision to establish a Provincial Wi-Fi Infrastracture Network will still continue despite the recent development in its procurement process.
The DICT is procuring 82 lots for 82 provinces, covering Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, for the realization of the Pipol Konek – Free Wi-Fi in Public Places Project.
The Philippine International Trading Corporation (PITC) declared some Bids “failed” due to minor documentary requirement from some of the bidders. Bidders with minor documentary deficiencies have filed a motion for reconsideration.
The Department of Information and Communications Technology is optimistic that more bidders will be joining the second round of the bidding process. The rebidding process of the remaining provinces is expected to take place by May 2018.
