Requesting Entity: Mr. Renato M. Daguman

Issues Concern: Designation of the Head of the Business Permit and Licensing Office as BAC Member

 

Details

Whether the head of the Business Permit and Licensing Office may be designated as a regular member of the BAC in LGUs.

The phrase "such as, but not limited to" in the [Section 11.2.2 of the IRR-A] implies that the enumeration provided therein is not exclusive. Thus, the local chief executive may designate one representative each, not only from the offices mentioned above, but also from other regular offices under the Office of the Local Chief Executive such as the Business Permit and Licensing Office.

Based on the foregoing discussion, the head of the Business Permit and Licensing Office may be designated by the head of the procuring entity as a regular member of the BAC.
