Issues Concern: Procurement Short of Award



Applicable procurement rules or issuances relative to the conduct of procurement short of award

[G]overnment agencies covered by the GPPB Circular and DBM Circulars are allowed to commence procurement activities for PAPs that are included in the NEP, but the award of contract shall be made only after the approval and effectivity of the GAA. Accordingly, MARINA may refer to the aforementioned issuances (GPPB Circular No. 01-2009, DBM Circular Letter No. 2010-9, and DBM National Budget Circular No. 551) for specific guidelines should it decide to start its procurement for the 2016 SIRB requirements.
