Requesting Entity: Bureau of Animal Industry
Issues Concern: Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) Chairman
Opinion on the propriety of the appointment of an Agriculturist I with a Salary Grade Eleven (SG-11) as BAC Chairman.
[A]ny person holding a position existing within the organizational structure of the procuring entity and who possesses the required ranking may be designated as BAC Chairman.
The determining factor for regular membership in the BAC is not the employment status of the person but the position he is holding. Accordingly, the propriety of the designation of an Agriculturist I as BAC Chairman lies on whether he or she occupies at least a 3rd ranking permanent position within the organizational structure of the Nueva Ecija Stock Farm of the Bureau of Animal Industry. On the other hand, we wish to remind you that insofar as the other BAC members of bureaus, regional offices and sub-regional/district offices are concerned, they should also be at least a 3rd ranking permanent personnel.
