Amidst Author’s Remarks, Bodog Nation Chooses “Super Nation” PH as Home

Calvin Ayre
Despite how The Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown described the Philippines in his latest novel Inferno, Bodog Nation is here to stay.

In fact, the recruitment arm of global empire Bodog is set to prove that the country is a “super nation” as it is set to conduct its Open House events on June 17 and June 20 at its Makati and Quezon City sites. Applicants are welcome to immerse the ''work hard, party hard" culture of Bodog. TV host Tim Yap will be the special guest in these events. As a bonus, a lucky applicant will win a VIP night out for 25 people at the Cabana Club in Republiq at the Resorts World Manila in Pasay.

Bodog Nation also launched Fire Yourself, a recruitment campaign designed to find more smart and talented people to join this multi-cultural, rapidly growing international company.

Jade Forlani, Bodog’s HR Director, explains, "Bodog Nation is not alone in recognizing the huge benefits of making Manila its home and the city has played a huge part in our success. As a result we are recruiting madly at the moment and have over 100 positions open. This is why we've taken the step of throwing our doors open to potential employees by having two 'Open House' events on June 17 and June 20 in our Makati and Quezon City offices to allow local people a chance to meet us and bring their resume's with them.”

Bodog Nation is an arm of Bodog, a company that has grown into an empire since it was founded in 1994 by Calvin Ayre. The Bodog Nation is currently just over 1,000 strong stretched across the globe but with its roots and headquarters firmly based in Manila.

DOTC Plans Key MRT 3 Projects

The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) is about to conduct bid evaluation and post-qualification exercises for two key projects for the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) 3 System, namely: the PHP712 million MRT-3 System Temporary Maintenance Provider Project & Delivery of MRT-3 Magnetic Ticket Project. 

After opening the eligibility documents of three groups which vied for the one-year Maintenance project on 3 June 2013, the DOTC’s Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) found only one proponent, Autre Porte Technique (or “APT”) Global, Inc., to have qualified for the next stages of the bidding process. 

“APT Global submitted a bid in the amount of around PHP685 million. Financial proposals of the two other interested groups were no longer opened after they were found to be ineligible,” said DOTC spokesperson Migs Sagcal. 

The disqualified groups were Asiaphil Manufacturing Industries, Inc. in Joint Venture with Korea Railroad, which did not comply with sealing and marking requirements of Republic Act No. 9184 (the Procurement Law); and Commbuilders & Technology Philippines Corporation, which failed to submit a certificate of satisfactory performance. 

“Unfortunately, it once more came down to two groups’ failure to comply with the bid requirements. Time and again, we have said that the DOTC-BAC can do nothing but to follow the Procurement Law, which prohibits it from exercising discretion” Sagcal added. 

As for the magnetic ticket supply project, only the current MRT-3 contractor submitted a proposal during the bid opening conducted on Thursday last week, 30 May 2013. The Transport agency disclosed that Banner Plasticard, Inc. offered to supply and deliver 4,252,000 magnetic tickets to the DOTC-MRT3 in the amount of PHP25 million. 

The financial proposals of the eligible bidders for both projects will now undergo detailed evaluation, after which their bids will be subjected to post-qualification exercises. 

The relatively short duration of these projects – one year for the maintenance contract and thirty days for the ticket supply contract – is partly due to the eventual buyout of the owner of the MRT-3 facilities pursuant to Executive Order No. 126 issued by President Benigno S. Aquino III last March, as well as the transition to an Automatic Fare Collection System (AFCS), now being bid out by the DOTC as a Public-Private Partnership Project, by the first quarter of 2015.
