Cayetano clears issue on SEA Games uniforms

Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC) Foundation, Inc. chairman Alan Peter Cayetano cleared the issue thrown at them regarding the alleged overpriced quotations of Team Philippines’ uniforms. Talking to the media on Thursday, Cayetano explained their side on the issue, denying the allegations made by the majority of the Philippine Olympic Committee Board that Team PHI's uniforms are “unreasonably” higher than the suggested retail prices in the company’s flagship store. PHISGOC Foundation tapped Asics as the official outfitter of Team PHI.        This and the legitimacy of PHISGOC Foundation as organizer of the biennial meet are some of the issues that the committee is facing just months before the scheduled staging of the Games in November. “Noong nakipag-usap sila sa ASICS they are willing to sponsor all the uniforms for 400, wala tayong ilalabas na pera dun, lahat yun. And ang uniform Olympic quality,” Cayetano cleared. Cayetano said that Asics, in their initial talks, agreed to sponsor all the uniforms in 400 events but a bargaining with the SEA Games Federation in the number of sports and events increased the number of sports to 56 and the events at 529 events.    “So paano yung 129 events, yung uniform nun? So unfair naman sa ASICS na ‘Oh sandali lang baguhin natin ang deal. Pumayag na kayo sa 400, pumayag naman kayo sa 529 kundi no deal,’” said Cayetano. “Kung nag-no deal then we have to pay for the uniforms for the 400 events.” As a compromise, Cayetano added that Asics asked them if they want they can pay for the uniforms of the remaining 129 events.   “Napasa ‘yan sa PSC (Philippine Sports Commission) because hindi pa napasa ang budget ng PHISGOC and PSC said dadaan sa procurement nila. So lahat ito ay proposals, pero ang procurement body ang magsasabi kung pwede o hindi,” he said. Cayetano denied the allegations that the uniforms are ‘overpriced’. The POC Board alleged that the PHISGOC Foundation request to PSC shows that a set of competition uniforms costs P51,5111 while the company’s quotation for the same item during the 18th Asian Games last year was only P25,000. “Ang problema instead of bringing it up with the board and mag-usap, naghanap ng outlet, kinompare yung presyo. Eh iba naman siguro po ang nasa outlet, sa retail and yung sa Olympic number,” said Cayetano. “But as I said we can discuss it.” “Imagine yung 129 is 1/5, yung 400 libre so para wala na lang issue, sabihin na lang natin sa Asics iba na lang, we’ll pay for all 529? Yung mga nagko-comment ng ayaw nun, saan kukunin ang pera? They’re not willing to sponsor it. They want us to use government money for it,” added Cayetano. The PHISGOC Foundation head said that they can raise these issues at a proper venue or through an audience with them, not through press releases and separate interviews. “They should also understand that they can criticize but we also have to deliver,” he said. “If they’re criticisms are valid then we have to reform.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
