Requesting Entity: PHILIPPINE CHARITY SWEEPSTAKES OFFICE (PCSO)
Issues Concern: Agency-to-Agency Agreement
Whether there is still a need to get quotations from other survey providers where the Procuring Entity is planning to engage the services of the Development Academy of the Philippines to conduct a Third (3rd) Party survey at PCSO.
For guidance, in cases where procurement from another agency of the government is more efficient and economical, Negotiated Procurement under the Agency-to-Agency modality sanctioned by Section 53.5of the 2016 revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of RA 9184 may be resorted to. This rule allows a government entity to procure from another government entity without need of public bidding or sending Requests for Quotations to other prospective bidders, subject to compliance with the prescribed conditions and procedures under the rules, particularly Annex “H” of the 2016 IRR or the Consolidated Guidelines for the Alternative Methods of Procurement (Guidelines).
