HA NOI (Biz Hub) — FPT Information System Company (FPT IS) beat six international contractors to win a US$1.4-million bid to provide a management system for complaints and denunciations for the Philippine government.

The contract was signed on October 27 in Manila.

The tender is part of a financial support package given by the United States to the Philippines. The package aims to raise the personal income of the Filipino people, boost expenditure and public investment, enhance tax revenues and prevent corruption.

The Vietnamese firm will co-operate with the Philippine government to build a database of complaints and denunciations, and speed up their processes. The management system is expected to be implemented in 10 months in the country's government agencies.

This is the first time that FPT IS has won a bid in this market, raising its total number of tenders this year to 14, worth a total of $26.4 million.

In November, the firm will open a representative office in the Philippines.

FPT IS Global General Director Le Anh Tuan said that the Philippines is one of its main markets and the company expects to get more contracts there in 2015.

Earlier, the company announced on September 9 that it will provide an integrated tax administration system for Bangladesh's Income Tax Department. — VNS
