Requesting Entity: Commission on Population (POPCOM)
Issues Concern: Designation and Composition of Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) Members
Whether the Division Chief of the Finance Services Division can be designated as regular member of the BAC without any legal impediment.
[W]e are of the view that the Division Chief for the Finance Service Division may be designated as a regular member of the POPCOM’s BAC if the position she is occupying is at least a fifth ranking plantilla position and she is not concurrently the Chief Accountant or personnel of the Accounting Unit. On the other hand, if she is concurrently the Chief Accountant or personnel of the Accounting Unit of the POPCOM, she may nevertheless be appointed as a provisional member of the BAC when the Accounting Unit is the end-user.
