Requesting Entity: Philippine Commission on Women

Issues Concern: Contract of Service / Job Order



Whether Republic Act (RA) No. 9184 and its revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) applies in the engagement of Contract of Service Personnel on Job Order Basis.

RA 9184 and its IRR do not apply in the engagement of services of individuals under Job Order or Contract of Service; however, they apply in the engagement of non-personal service through sole proprietorship, partnership or a corporation contracted for the purpose.

As discussed in the Policy Matter (PM) Opinion No. 02-2012 issued by the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB), the engagement of personal services under a Job Order or Contract of Service scenario is not contemplated under the procurement law and its associated rules based on the definition and enumeration of what involves General Support Services and analogous services.
