Restarted again (link (http://www.dnd.gov.ph/transparency/procurement/dnd-special-bids-and-awards-committee.html)) but with nothing change.

With neither increase in budget nor reduction in scope, one wonders where this is heading.

I'm wondering why the LRPA budget was not augmented for foreign exchange fluctuations just like the (F/SA/LIFTA) Project (PHP 245,761,900) and the C-130T Acquisition Project (PHP 73,342,222)?

They were blacklist. Which is why we still don't see the CN212

The latest bid clarification (10 July 2017) suggest otherwise. A whole list of clarifications from PT Dirgantara. So what happened to the blacklist?

http://www.dnd.gov.ph/transparency/procurement/DND_SBAC/2017/SBB/SBB%20NR%20DND-AFP-PAF-LRPA-17-07-001.pdf

Based on the clarifications, the active bidders now are:

Also interesting to note that Saab suggested going for the Saab 340 MSA outright (which was rejected by SBAC) with the LRPA budget being capable of supporting between 4 - 5 units. The difference of course, is the Saab 340 MSA is a pure maritime surveillance platform while the LRPA specs calls for a MPA with ASuW capabilities.

PAL Aerospace actually came in with full specs on both birds and inside ABC. They were DQ'd because BAC didn't see their NFCC. This may be grounds for a Reconsideration. Also, they were offering ATR with Thales.

How about PT Dirgantara and Airbus, why were they DQ'ed?

Both Way Over ABC. Between the number of restarts and the FX volatility, the ABC had always been marginal for what the specs call for.

How many failed bids before we go G2G like the LIFT/SAA project?

2 bids, then option for negotiated procurement is a valid option.
