Comelec, F2 Logistics ink deal


Despite opposition from election watchdogs, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) has signed the P535-million contract for the transportation of election paraphernalia.

The copy of the contract it forged with F2 Logistics was posted on the website of Comelec after it was signed last Friday.

Under the agreement, F2 Logistics will be responsible for the delivery of all Automated Election System related equipment, peripherals, forms and supplies for the roadshow, field tests, mock elections, training, Final Testing and Sealing (FTS) and Election Day of Comelec.

“Provider shall exercise extraordinary diligence in the handling and delivery of all Comelec Cargoes. Any loss or damage to Comelec shipments is subject to the pertinent provisions of this Contract,” according to the 32-page contract.

F2 Logistics bagged the contract as it was able to meet the Performance Security in the form of a bank guarantee last September 21.

Comelec has drawn criticism after it awarded the contract to F2 Logistics, which was linked to Davao businessman Dennis Uy, a known ally of President Duterte.
