NPM No. 059-2016

Requesting Entity: Cavite State University (CvSU)

Issues Concern: Honoraria; Supply Officer



Whether a Supply Officer designated as a member of the Bids Awards Committee (BAC) is entitled to honoraria.


[T]he designation of the OIC of the Supply and Property Office as a BAC member entitles him/her to honoraria for successfully completed procurement projects in accordance with Sections 5.1 and 5.5 of DBM BC 2004-5A. The disqualification on the entitlement of honoraria only refers to BAC Secretariat members whose positions are in the Procurement Unit of the agency and whose functions, duties and responsibilities involve the performance of BAC Secretariat functions; the rationale being that one should not be compensated another time for performing work he or she ought to perform, as this will be against the principle of double compensation.
