NPM No. 028-2017

Requesting Entity: Metro Iloilo Water District (MIWD)

Issues Concern: Termination of Contracts



Whether the Board of Directors has the discretion to reconsider the termination of a contract, and thereafter proceed with its implementation.

Questions on the propriety and wisdom of a decision are best left to the procuring entity. The GPPB and its TSO adhere to the position that apart from courts having actual jurisdiction over the subject matter of a case, it cannot, nor any other government agency, authority, or official, encroach upon or interfere with the exercise of the functions and decisions of the Head of the Procuring Entity, as well as the Bids and Awards Committee, since these duties and responsibilities fall solely within the ambit of their authority and discretion as sanctioned by law.
