Issues Concern: Honoraria of Absent BAC/TWG members
Whether members of the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) and/or Technical Working Group (TWG) who were absent in some or all of the procurement activities are entitled to honoraria.
Section 11.2.4 of the 2016 revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) No. 9184 provides that alternate members of the BAC, designated by the Head of the Procuring Entity (HoPE), and with the same qualifications as that of the original members designated under Section 11.2.2 of the 2016 IRR, shall attend meetings of the BAC and receive the proportionate honoraria, whenever the original members are absent.
The alternate BAC members are entitled to honoraria proportionate to the meetings they attended. Conversely, the original BAC members are also entitled to honoraria proportionate to the meetings they attended. Applying the same rule, the TWG chair or member shall be entitled to honoraria for the meetings they have actually participated in.
