Issues Concern: Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) Resolution No. 12-2007



Whether GPPB Resolution No. 12-2007 imposes the requirement that there should first be "an appropriation law or ordinance earmarking an amount to be specifically contracted out to Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)" before a government agency can transfer funds to an NGO under the circumstances contemplated under Commission on Audit (COA) Circular No. 2007-001


[W]When transfer of fund to an NGO is effected not in the context of Negotiated Procurement under the NGO Participation modality, the requirements and conditions under GPPB Resolution No. 12-2007 does not apply.

[T]he Guidelines on NGO Participation issued pursuant to GPPB Resolution No. 12-2007 applies only when an appropriation law or ordinance earmarks an amount for projects to be specifically contracted out to NGOs, and shall not be made applicable to other matters that are governed by other rules and regulations which are outside the jurisdiction of the GPPB, such as those transactions covered by COA Circular No. 2007-001.
