Issues Concern: Leasing of Government Property



Proper mode of procurement relative to lease of stalls to concessionaires within RTU’s buildings


[L]easing out of a government-owned building for private use is not within the ambit of Republic Act (RA) No. 9184 and its revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR). The Guidelines on Lease of Privately-Owned Real Estate and Venue (Guidelines) expressly excluded the “lease of government property for private use” from the coverage of the Guidelines.


[L]easing out of government building for private use is governed by Executive Order No. 301 , dated 26 July 1987, as re-stated in Commission on Audit Circular No. 87-282, dated 22 December 1987.
