Issues Concern: Table of Rating Factors for Lease of Venue
Clarification on whether Table “C” of Appendix “B” in the Consolidated Guidelines for the Alternative Methods of Procurement or Annex “H” of the 2016 revised IRR of RA 9184 is required as supporting document for procurement undertaken through Negotiated Procurement (Lease of Real Property and Venue) under Section 53.10 of the 2016 revised IRR of RA 9184.
[T]he Table of Rating Factors for Lease of Venue is necessary for the Bids and Awards Committee and/or its Technical Working Group to determine whether the venue offered by the Lessor is Single or Lowest Calculated and Responsive, and then, whether to recommend to the Head of the Procuring Entity the award of contract to the said Lessor. Hence, the technical specifications in the Request for Quotation or Proposal must indicate the necessary factors considered and required by the Procuring Entity, with the bidder stating its compliance therefor in its Quotation or Proposal. Nonetheless, Table “C” is not a required supporting document for the procurement undertaken through Section 53.10 of the 2016 revised IRR.
