Issues Concern: Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) Meetings on a Declared Holiday

 

Details

Whether BAC meetings can be conducted on a holiday.


By virtue of Government Procurement Policy Board Resolution No. 21-2017, Section 38.2 of the 2016 IRR of RA 9184 provides: “for purposes of expediency, economy, and efficiency, as determined by the BAC, specific procurement activities may be held on a Saturday, Sunday, non-working day or holiday: provided, that the BAC, secretariat and TWG members shall be available on such date”.


Thus, effective 4 January 2018, specific procurement activities may be held on a Saturday, Sunday, nonworking day or holiday for purposes of expediency, economy, and efficiency, as determined by the BAC. In such a case, the requirements under Section 38.2 shall be complied with.
