PhilGEPS is a centralized electronic portal the Philippine government uses as a public procurement system. It automates and streamlines procurement processes for PhilGEPS registered suppliers and monitors government procurement activities to promote transparency, competitiveness, and accountability.

Agencies or companies with a PhilGEPS Platinum Membership receive a PhilGEPS Certificate of Registration, which allows them to place direct biddings on the PhilGEPS system.
The PhilGEPS Red and Platinum memberships have their requirements, but to be a Platinum member, an agency or company must first complete the Red Membership application.

PhilGEPS Platinum-accredited agencies and companies are preferred suppliers. They receive a PhilGEPS Certificate of Registration, a requirement for PhilGEPS direct bidding.
Moreover, a PhilGEPS Platinum Membership allows an agency or company to propose their services on public projects via the PhilGEPS bidding portal.
