Whether it is necessary to go through competitive or public bidding when procuring livestock.
As a general rule, procurement shall be procured through competitive bidding pursuant to Section 10 of RA 9184 and its 2016 IRR. Alternative Methods of Procurement may be resorted to only in highly exceptional cases, to promote economy and efficiency, and if justified by the conditions as provided for in RA 9184 and its 2016 IRR.
