Bong Go denies hand in DND procurement

MANILA (Philippines News Agency)  — Special Assistant to the President Christopher ‘Bong’ Go on Tuesday denied reports that he interfered in the procurement of combat management system (CMS) of the Department of National Defense (DND).

“I have not intervened in the procurement of DND of its computer system for its ships,” Go said in a press statement.

According to media reports, Go’s office had allegedly expressed preference for supplier Naval Shield Integrated CMS of Hanwha Thales while the Philippine Navy wanted another supplier Tacticos CMS of Thales Nederlands, Inc. for Navy’s PHP15.7-billion frigate program.

“I have not participated nor intervened, directly or indirectly, in the transactions of DND,” Go clarified.

“Further, I even have no information nor knowledge of the said transaction,” he added.

Go said clarification requests on the issues should be addressed to DND Secretary Delfin Lorenzana. (PNA)
