Issues Concern: Guidelines on Disposal of Confiscated Properties



Request for guidelines in the disposition of confiscated properties.

Republic Act No. 9184 does not cover disposal of government properties. Thus, the issuance of rules or guidelines therefor is outside the mandate of the Government Procurement Policy Board. Nonetheless, for guidance, we wish to refer the Honorable Commissioner to the Manual on the Disposal of Government Property (Manual) issued by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) through National Budget Circular No. 425 dated 28 January 1992 pursuant to Executive Order No. 285 dated 25 July 1987.

In light of the foregoing, we respectfully refer NTC to the Systems and Productivity Improvement Bureau of the DBM, as the office responsible for drafting the Manual, for appropriate and more authoritative clarification on the applicability of the Manual to disposition of confiscated properties.
