Requesting Entity: Poro Point Management Corporation

Issues Concern: Section 53 (d) of Republic Act No. 9184



Whether PPMC can enter into a negotiated contract with the contractor for the revision of an on-going project's scope of work under Section 53 (d) of R.A. 9184 and its IRR-A.

Under Section 12 of R.A. 9184, in proper cases, the BAC shall recommend to the head of the procuring entity the use of alternative methods of procurement.

Thus, if the BAC of your Office determines that all the conditions for negotiated procurement under Section 53 (d) of the IRR-A are present, said BAC may make the proper recommendation to the head of the procuring entity for the use of negotiated procurement. The head of the procuring entity shall approve or disapprove such recommendation of the BAC. (Section 48.1 IRR-A)
