Issues Concern: Resort to Alternative Modes of Procurement
How many failed procurement through the alternative mode of shopping is required before a procuring entity may resort to other alternative methods of procurement?
Please be advised that a procuring entity may resort to any of the alternative modes of procurement provided that it falls under the conditions set forth by RA 9184 and its IRR-A. It is not dependent on the number of failed attempts to procure through shopping. Resort to other alternative methods of procurement may be had provided that the conditions for the recommended mode are present.
