NPM No. 065-2016

Requesting Entity: Office Of The Executive Secretary

Issues Concern: Lease of Public Property



Opinion relative to the proposed agreement between the Foundation of Our Lady of Peace Mission, Inc. (FOLPMI) and the Department of Health (DOH) for the former`s continuous use of a parcel of land under the administration of the Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA).


[T]he proposed agreement between the DOH and FOLPMI does not fall within the coverage of RA 9184 and its IRR as its nature is similar to that of leasing out of government building or property for private use which is more appropriately governed by EO 301 and COA Circular No. 87-282.
