MANILAThe military, through the Philippine Air Force (PAF) Bids and Awards Committee, is allocating PHP24.23 million for the acquisition of spares needed for the maintenance of its Cessna C-208B Grand Caravan aircraft.

The aircraft is helpful in the Armed Forces of the Philippines' conduct of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance operations.

In a bid bulletin posted at the Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System, PAF Bids and Awards chair, Brig. Gen. Fernyl Buca said prospective bidders should have experience in a similar project within the last five years.
