Issues Concern: Post-Qualification for Repeat Order
Whether the conduct of post-qualification is required when resorting to Repeat Order under Section 51 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) No. 9184.
Repeat Order under Section 51 of RA 9184 does not require post-qualification because the phrase "subject to post-qualification process described in the Bidding Documents", as stated in the provision refers to Competitive Bidding and not to Repeat Order. The interpretation can be gleamed from its counterpart provision in the IRR as the said phrase no longer appears in Section 51 of the IRR of RA 9184.
