Requesting Entity: National Power Corporation (NPC)
Issues Concern: Extensions of Contract for Janitorial Services
Whether the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) Resolution No. 23-2007 or the Revised Guidelines on the Extension of Contracts for General Support Services shall apply to the extension of janitorial services for generating plants affected by the implementation of the privatization law as mandated by Republic Act (RA) No. 9136, otherwise known as the Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001 (EPIRA).
RA 9814 and the revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR), including the various guidelines applies to all procurement of any branch, agency, department, bureau, office, or instrumentality of the government of the Philippines, including government-owned and/or-controlled corporations, government financial institutions, state universities and colleges, and local government units. Thus, if the personality of NPC-Angat Hydroelectric Power Plant as a government agency has been transformed into a private entity, then the procurement laws will no longer apply.
