CAMP GENERAL EMILIO AGUINALDO, Quezon City - The Armed Forces of the Philippines Procurement Service (AFPPS) has earned its International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 Certificate this month, a military official said.
Col Alvin Francis Javier, the Commander of AFPPS, said that his unit is the first procurement office to earn that coveted certification from an international audit body.
“The AFPPS officially obtained ISO 9001:2008 Certificate on April 6, 2015 from TUV Rheinland Philippines, Inc., a well-respected international audit body which specializes in evaluating management systems based on international standards. We are so proud of this feat,” said Javier.
The President of the Development Academy of the Philippines, Antonio D. Kalaw Jr. re-echoed Javier’s statement when he said: “AFPPS is the first procurement office in the government bureaucracy to be ISO 9001:2008 Certified.”
Currently, the AFPPS Headquarters, the General Headquarters Procurement Center and 302nd Contracting Office (CO) were ISO 9001:2008 Certified.
“But we are determined to have all the units of AFPPS to be compliant to international standards,” says Col Alvin Francis A Javier, Commander, AFPPS.
