Issues Concern: Applicability of Republic Act No. 9184 (R.A. 9184) On Foreign Assisted Projects
Procurement rules and procedures to be adopted for procurement projects funded by a Loan Agreement
Based on the above-cited provision (Section 1, IRR-A, R.A. 9184), it can be clearly inferred that the IRR-A of R.A. 9184 does not apply to projects funded by International Financing Institutions (IFIs). This being the case, procurement activities funded by the IFIs are governed by their respective procurement guidelines, rules and regulations.
