State agencies have blacklisted 36 contractors as of September this year, barring them from participating in government procurement activity or bidding for public infrastructure projects over a certain period.

In a statement, the Construction Industry Authority of the Philippines (CIAP), an agency of the Department of Trade and Industry, said 36 construction contracting firms were blacklisted due to alleged rescission of contract because of failure to complete the project; abandonment of the contract/project; intolerable negative slippage; failure to comply with contractual obligations/contract violations; failure to comply with lawful instructions; falsification of public documents; quality of materials not in compliance with approved plans and specifications; unsatisfactory quality of work, and termination of contract.


The CIAP is tasked to promote, accelerate and regulate the growth and development of the construction industry. Through licensing unit Philippine Construction Accreditation Board (PCAB), the government aims to ensure that all contractors are reliable, competent and qualified to engage in construction contracting business.  It can revoke and/or suspend the license of erring contractors.

Through Philippine Domestic Construction Board, CIAP implements the Construction Performance Evaluation System, a rating system used in evaluating the performance of constructors.


The list of erring contractors are submitted to the Government Procurement Policy Board.

Based on the list, the CIAP said the National Housing Authority had barred A. P. Torres; B.J. Contractors; Constructive Builder and Ramona Mining and Development from participating in its bidding, while National Power Corp. blacklisted Al-alamiah Construction and Sarbet Builders.

Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System blocked Alpha Trine Motors; Infra-Structural Construction; RT Katigbak Construction, and Stern Builders, while the Department of Transportation and Communication blacklisted AQA Global Construction.

Other state agencies have reportedly blacklisted the following:  Arpee Construction and Supply and FNA Construction (Department of Education); BE Construction, JR Maliwanag Trading and Construction, Jonice Engineering Construction, Suzuka Construction Co., Ltd., and Villcruz Construction and Supply (De    partment of Public Works and Highways); DJ Builders Corp. (Armed Forces of the Philippines); ES Almuete Construction, and Francis Lim Construction (National Irrigation Administration); Huxley Builders General Contractor (Local Government of Quezon City); Mecon Systems Services and Maintenance Products, MRRM Trading and Construction, and Northstar Ibex Construction Philippine Army); River Concrete Construction and Development (Municipality of Calamba); Ruby Lim Construction and Supplies Inc, (Philippine National Police Region 8); S&W Construction and Gen. Merchandise (Philippine Ports Authority); Square ’R’ Builders and Development (Department of Health) and  WERR Corp. International (City of Zamboanga)

PCAB blacklisted four firms: Geety Realty & Development, Lime Light Construction, R2D Construction & Supply, and Transpower Builders and Development.
