Government agencies, as well as suppliers, contractors, manufacturers, distributors and consultants, are mandated to register and use the system in the conduct of procurement of goods, civil works and consulting services.

Agencies are the department, office, or any instrumentality of government, including state universities and colleges, government-owned and/or controlled corporations, government financial institutions and local government units registered with the system.
Suppliers are manufacturers, distributors, contractors, and consultants, both local and foreign, registered with the system.
