Ei2 Tech wanted to continue producing lessons aired on DepEd TV.

But the education department has sent a disqualification notice to Paolo and a certain Cherie Cuela of Radenta Technologies Inc.

It was signed by DepEd Undersecretary Alain Pascua, dated February 10, 2022.

Paolo and Cuela’s company was disqualified after it earned only 64 percent on the “technical component” in the evaluation of DepEd since the passing score is 70 percent.

The bidding might have been affected by the alleged falsification of documents complaint filed by almost (100) contractual production workers of Ei2 Tech against Paolo.

This group of contractual workers also aired their grievances about the alleged delay in Ei2 Tech’s salary. Reportedly, their unpaid salary reached PHP42M.

According to a certain Andres Bonifacio, one of the 42 executive producers who worked with Ei2 Tech, the delaying of salary lasted for “one to eight months.”

This prompted his group to stop attending their job until they were given their salary.

They have tried to reach out to Paolo several times and the latter promised to pay them but it did not happen.

Aside from that, Andres and his group learned of alleged “pandaraya” for the bidding of the “Phase 2” of the DepEd TV project, the PHP654-M deal.

This, after Paolo Bediones’ company, used their curriculum vitae (CV) as supporting documents submitted for the bidding of DepEd.

They also learned that Paolo’s company forged their signatures on documents submitted to DepEd.
