Issues Concern: Termination of Contracts

 

Details

1.Whether the procedures for termination of contracts provided in the General Conditions of Contract of the Philippine Bidding Documents for the Procurement of Infrastructure Projects, and in the Guidelines on Termination of Contracts apply to infrastructure projects where the contract time has already expired

Whether the ground for termination of contract existed while the project is on-going or after the contract time has expired, the termination of contract should follow the procedures laid down in the Guidelines and in the GCC.

2.Whether in case of lapse of the original contract time, there is an implied extension of contract time until the sum of liquidated damages of the contractor amounts to 10% of the contract amount.
