Issues Concern: Outsourcing of Manpower Services



Whether or not the Guidelines on Procurement of Security and Janitorial Services may be used as basis by PPA to enter into a multi-year contract for outsourcing the manpower services requirement of its Head Office Responsibility Centers and Engineering Projects.

It is clear from [Section 2.0 thereof] that the subject guidelines cover only Security and Janitorial Services, to the exclusion of other general support services. Thus, the same may not be used as basis for the outsourcing of technical and administrative support personnel of the concerned units of [the] agency.
