Requesting Entity: Office of the Municipal Mayor of Tigaon, Camarines Sur

Issues Concern: Request for Extension in the Implementation of R.A. 9184 and its IRR-A



There is nothing stated in R.A. 9184 and its IRR-A that its implementation or application may be let off by reason of mere unfamiliarity with its provisions. Neither is there any provision allowing its non-implementation due to the unavailability of the standardized forms mentioned in Section 6 therein. In this connection, please note that in lieu of the standardized forms procuring entities may use its old forms, subject to the amendments necessary for it to comply with the R.A. 9184 and its IRR-A.

In view of the foregoing, we regret to inform you that your municipality cannot be given an extension from implementing the provisions of R.A. 9184 and its IRR-A.
