Issues Concern: Disqualification of Blacklisted Supplier in the Procurement of Goods through Shopping



Whether a blacklisted supplier may be allowed to participate in a procurement activity conducted through the alternative method of Shopping under Section 53.2 of the revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) No. 9184.


In accordance with Item 3(j) of the Guidelines for Shopping and Small Value Procurement, a procuring entity must validate whether it is entering into a contract with a technically, legally and financially capable supplier. In order to determine such qualifications, the procuring entity may require the submission of relevant documents, or conduct the validation through other means. The latter includes, but is not necessarily limited to, verifying whether a supplier, upon submission of its quotation, is included in the list of blacklisted suppliers as posted in the official website of the GPPB. If the supplier is not included in the list, the procuring entity may accept and proceed with the evaluation of the quotation received. Otherwise, it shall immediately disqualify the said supplier.
