Requesting Entity: Office of the Municipal Mayor of Sogod, Southern Leyte

Issues Concern: Standard Bidding Documents



Request for a copy of the draft bidding documents.

We would like to inform you that the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) is still in the process of developing the Procurement Operations Manual and the standard bidding documents (SBDs) to be issued to all government agencies and instrumentalities. As such, we regret to inform you that we cannot furnish you of the draft copies of the SBDs until they are finalized. As soon as the manuals and SBDs are officially completed, we will inform your office so that you can secure a copy thereof. Accordingly, in order to prevent delay, inconvenience or hiatus in your procurement activities, pending the issuance of the SBDs, your office may use existing bidding documents as long as it is in compliance with R.A. 9184 and its IRR-A. For this purpose, you may also want to refer to Rule VI of the IRR-A of R.A. 9184 to guide you in the preparation of your bidding documents.
