Requesting Entity: Tagkawayan Water District
Issues Concern: PhilGEPS Posting for Negotiated Procurement (Two Failed Biddings) under Section 53.1 of the Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) No. 9184
Whether posting of the Request for Quotations (RFQs) in the PhilGEPS website is necessary when Negotiated Procurement (Two Failed Biddings) under Section 53.1 of the IRR of RA 9184 is resorted to.
[T]he 2016 Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (2016 IRR) of RA 9184 was published on 29 August 2016 in the Official Gazette and took effect sixty (60) days after its publication or on 28 October 2016. Hence, in case the subject procurement activity is to be posted on or after 28 October 2016, the provisions of the 2016 IRR shall take effect, otherwise the old rules will apply. In this regard, please be guided that the period for posting of RFQs has been reduced to three (3) calendar days in accordance with the amendment of Section 54.2 under the 2016 IRR.
