Requesting Entity: Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA)

Issues Concern: GPPB Circular No. 01-2009



Proposal to adopt GPPB Circular 01-2009 entitled "Guidelines Clarifying the Procurement Activities which may be undertaken without an Issued Allotment".

Apart from the GPPB Circular 01-2009, the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) likewise issued a similar circular, Circular Letter No. 2010-09, dated 30 December 2010, entitled "Guidelines Directing Agencies to Expedite the Implementation of their Procurement Activities". However, like the GPPB Circular, this Circular Letter applies only to all departments, bureaus, offices and agencies of the national government, including State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), and Government-Owned and/or Controlled Corporations (GOCCs) and Local Government Units (LGUs), which are tapped as implementing units and recipients of funds/budget from the national government.


SBMA may opt to adopt a policy containing the principles and provisions of GPPB Circular 01-2009 and DBM Circular Letter No. 2010-0, provided that such policy is consistent with RA 9184 and its IRR, and the act is within their respective corporate powers pursuant to its Corporate Charter or enabling law.
