Dir. Renato M. de Vera, MNSA, CESO III
Procurement of ordinary or regular office supplies and equipment not available in the PS involving an amount not exceeding P500,000.
Conduct cost-benefit analysis indicating that A2A is more efficient and economical;
Total amount of all Goods, Infra, and Consulting Services to be undertaken by A2A shall not exceed 25% of the PE's total budget for each category;
Servicing Agency (SA) has mandate to deliver the goods/services, undertake infra or consulting services;
SA owns or has access to necessary tools and equipment required for the project.
*Does not apply to procurement of Goods from PS
End-user unit shall conduct Cost-Benefit Analysis to assess feasibility of leasing from privately-owned as against purchasing or leasing from government-owned
Recommendation of end-user unit to lease shall also indicate proposed location, the justifications, and result of market analysis of prevailing rental rates in vicinity of selected location;
Set ABC using mid-point of the range obtained from results of market analysis on the prevailing rental rates within vicinity of selected location;
Reflect in the APP the proposed lease of real estate or venue;
Selection of Lessor may be delegated by the BAC to an appropriate bureau, committee, or support unit;
Eligibility documents need not be submitted by prospective Lessor.
Whether the minimum requirement for a contractor to be eligible to participate in negotiation is the same as that of public bidding.
GPPB Opinion:
Except those where competitive bidding or semblance thereof is present (LSB and NP-2-Failed Bidding), the PE has the discretion as to what legal, technical and financial documents to require; however, requiring too many eligibility documents may, in the process, defeat the very purpose of the alternative method modalities have been introduced and institutionalized.
Whether the requirement of at least three (3) quotations in Shopping is met when only one (1) supplier offerred a price while the other two (2) indicated "NONE" in the RFQ.
GPPB Opinion:
A response of "NONE" in the RFQ is not considered a price quotation for the purpose of complying with the minimum three (3) quotations in Shopping for ordinary and regular office suppliers/equipment not available in the Procurement Service.
NPM 127-2014
Whether the MWSS RO can resort to Direct Contracting for the procurement of the subscription to Bloomberg Professional Service
GPPB Opinion:
For the 1st and 3rd conditions of Sec. 50 of the IRR to apply, it is encumbent upon the PE to ensure that based on the technical specs of the goods, only one supplier can supply and deliver the goods. The PE shall conduct a market survey of the industry and determine the supply source to confirm the exclusivity of the source of goods to be procured. Mere presence of Cert. of Exclusive Distributorship by one company does not sanction to resort to Exclusive Distributorship.
NPM 110-2014
Whether it is necessary to obtain three (3) price quotations for SVP.
GPPB Opinion:
In SVP, award of contract may be made even if only one (1) supplier submitted proposal/quotation, provided that the PE invited at least three (3) suppliers to submit quotations, and provided that the submission complies with the requirements and terms and conditions required by the PE.
NPM 097-2014
Clarification on the submission of relevant documents for Shopping and SVP.
GPPB Opinion:
COA Circular 2012-001 mandates the PE to submit specific documents in case of Shopping and SVP.

To harmonize these policies, PE may, for purposes of determining what constitutes relevant documents, consider the two (2) documentary requirements mentioned in Sec. 9.2 of the COA circular for submission by suppliers in the case of Shopping or SVP.
NPM 068-2014
Whether the BAC can evaluate a lone contractor which responded to the invitation to participate in Negotiation due to 2-Failed Biddings.
GPPB Opinion:
Sec. 53.1.2 of the IRR provides that where there has been failure of public bidding for the 2nd time, the BAC shall invite and engage in negotiation with a "sufficient number" of contractors, suppliers or consultants. That refers to a minimum number to be invited for the purpose of negotiation. Accordingly, if only bidder responded, the PE may already proceed with the NP provided it has invited contractors of a number sufficient to ensure competition.
NPM 136-2013
Whether LRTA may request DOTC to be its Procurement Agent
GPPB Opinion:
Resort to Sec. 53.6 of the IRR is couched upon the condition that there is a general determination of lack of proficiency or capability by the PE to undertake a particular procurement. It does not qualify or limit the lack of proficiency or capability to specific circumstances. In the conduct of procurement the PA should strictly apply the rules and procedures under RA 9184 and its IRR.
NPM 038-2013
Whether the immediate resort to DC in the procurement of books authored by a particular author is justified by the fact that they are published and distributed by an exclusive distributor.
GPPB Opinion:
The fact alone that Good Governance Books is the publisher and exclusive distributor of all the books authored by a particular author does not sanction the immediate resort to DC. The PE must first justify the necessity for procuring copyrighted books, and must be able to prove that there are no suitable substitute in the market that can be procured at more advantageous terms.
NPM 116-2012
When is there Splitting of Contract?
GPPB Opinion:
The concept of splitting presupposes the singularity of a particular project but which, by the act of the PE, was divided or broken into small quantities and/or amounts, or divided into artificial phases or stages.

Said act must have been done for the purpose of circumventing or evading legal and procedural requirements. The project, by its nature, must have been considered as one project and therefore must have been captured in a single PPMP so that to divide it must have been unreasonable.
