NPM No. 143-2016

Requesting Entity: Philippine Carabao Center (PCC)

Issues Concern: Lease of Venue



Whether it is required to post in the PhilGEPS website the Request for Quotation in the Procurement of Lease of Venue.

[A]s a general rule for alternative methods of procurement, advertisement and posting as prescribed in Section 21.2.1 of the IRR, may be dispensed with, except those provided in Section 54.2 of the IRR. Thus, we have clarified in our previous opinion that advertisement or posting of the RFQ for the lease of real property, such as a specific venue, is not required under the rules. It is the contract of lease costing more than PhP50,000.00 that is required to be posted in the PhilGEPS website, the website of the procuring entity concerned, if available, and at any conspicuous place reserved for this purpose in the premises of the procuring entity.
