Requesting Entity: BD Medica Enterprise
Issues Concern: Additional Eligibility Documents
Whether the Procuring Entity (PE) may impose additional eligibility documents other than those required under Sections 23.1, 24.1, and 25.1 of the revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) No. 9184.
PEs are proscribed from requiring additional requirements. The list of minimum eligibility requirements under the revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) No. 9184 has been streamlined/simplified, such that only those requirements enumerated in Sections 23.1, 24.1, and 25.1 of the IRR are necessary for purposes of determining bidders' eligibility.

[T]he PE may require additional documents not as additional eligibility documents, but as additional documents pursuant to the Bidding Documents in relation to the financial component of the bid, Section 25.2, or Section 34.2 of the revised IRR of RA 9184.
