NPM No. 068-2016
Requesting Entity: City of Baguio
Issues Concern: Single Largest Completed Contract
Clarification on Non-Policy Matter Opinion No. 120-2015 regarding the requirement of Single Largest Completed Contract (SLCC)
[A] bidder under Small A or Small B category who does not have a previous completed contract with cost of not at least 50% of the ABC being bid out, are allowed to participate up to 50% of its Allowable Range of Contract Cost (ARCC). In addition, Sec. 126.96.36.199 of the 2009 revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) is now Sec.188.8.131.52 of the 2016 revised IRR, which allows contractors under Small A and Small B categories (without similar experience on the contract to be bid) to participate if the cost of the contract being bid out is not more than the ARCC based on the guidelines as prescribed by the Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board.
