… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Bill requires competitive tenders

Urip Hudiono, The Jakarta Post - 2006-12-13 17:12

Jakarta, December 13, 2006 (JP) - Finally realizing how the holding of competitive tenders in procurement projects can save public funds, the government will require all procurements -- including small ones by state-owned enterprises (SOEs) -- to be put out to open tender.

The requirement will be instituted through a new Procurement Law, the bill for which is to be submitted next year to the House of Representatives, said the National Development Planning Board (Bappenas)'s head of procurement policy, Agus Rahardjo.

The legal framework needed to be strengthened, Agus explained, as the current 2006 President Regulation on the matter only covered procurements by state agencies worth more than Rp 50 million (US$5,494). However, the holding of properly prepared and transparent tenders over the year had given rise to quite significant savings and better results.

Examples included a procurement project at the Public Works Ministry which managed to reduce the total cost to only Rp 2.1 trillion from the previously estimated figure of Rp 3.7 trillion, while a procurement by the Finance Ministry came in 30 percent cheaper than a similar procurement last year, with the goods supplied being exactly the same quality.

"This is all because open tenders attract more bidders offering more competitive prices," Agus told reporters Tuesday during a workshop on improving government procurement that was jointly organized by Bappenas and the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

"So, the Presidential Regulation is not enough as it is limited to procurement projects financed through the state and regional budgets, while SOEs aren't actually obliged to comply.

"It is, therefore, important that all procurements involving public funds in the future are conducted by means of open and transparent tenders."

The workshop introduced a set of standard-form tender documents for the procurement goods and services, which Bappenas had been developing with ADB support in the form of US$500,000 in technical assistance grants since 2001.

Agus said there was great potential for saving taxpayer funds if all procurement projects involving SOEs were required to be put out to open tender, particularly when one realized that procurements by state power utility PT PLN alone amounted to approximately Rp 33 trillion per year, while those by SOEs in the oil and gas sector could reach up to US$9 billion.

Some Rp 260 trillion out of next year's total of Rp 760 trillion in government spending will go on the procurement of goods and services.

A heated debate arose earlier this year when the government decided to directly appoint contractors for PLN's crash power-plant development program up to 2009. The projects have since been reoffered through public tenders.

Agus admitted that holding competitive tenders would result in a more cumbersome process.

Accordingly, it would also be necessary to set up a public sector procurement agency along the lines of those that existed in other countries.

He also said that it would be a good idea to pay procurement managers more than colleagues of equal rank to discourage them from accepting bribes and kickbacks from suppliers.
