Issues Concern: Bidding Out Construction by Phase
Whether it is possible to bid out the first phase of the construction of a Drainage System notwithstanding the absence of the Final Master Plan
[P]hasing of construction projects is allowed as long as each contractual phase covers a complete stand-alone infrastructure facility which is safe, strong, functional and useful to the end-user. Provided, further, that all the phases shall be procured through public bidding without circumventing any rules and requirements provided by Republic Act No. 9184 and its revised Implementing Rules and Regulations, specifically on splitting of contracts.
