Purchasing 4 wheel drive vehicles chargeable to calamity fund?

Post by lgusurallah13 on Sat Feb 05, 2011 10:31 am

Our Calamity/Disaster Officers wants to Purchase 4 wheel drive motor vehicles chargeable to the calamity/disaster fund, the BAC TWG found out that it is prohibited to purchase 4 wheel drive motor vehicles or either ambulance according to his research on the DBM Q & A. But still the Calamity/Disaster Officers insisted that they really need that vehicles.

Can you please help us to find the specific proof/guidelines on purchasing 4 wheel drive motor vehicles chargeable to calamity/disaster fund. Question Question Question

When the law does not distinguish, we should not distinguish.
Pursuant to Section 324 (d) of R.A. No. 7160 (as amended by R.A. No. 8185), the Calamity Fund may be used for the following activities:

a. For relief, rehabilitation, reconstruction and other works or services in connection with calamities which may occur during the budget year. Provided, however, that such Fund shall be used only in the area, or a portion thereof, of the LGU or other areas affected by a disaster or calamity, as determined and declared by the local Sanggunian concerned;

b. In case of fire or conflagration, the Calamity Fund shall be used only for relief operations.


DBM-DILG Joint Memorandum Circular (JMC) No. 2003-1 (Use of Local Calamity Fund Appropriation for Man-Made Disaster Relief and Mitigation) dated March 20, 2003 was issued to expand the utilization of the 5% Calamity Fund.

The Fund may now also be validly used for relief, rehabilitation, reconstruction and other works or services in connection with man-made disasters resulting from unlawful acts of insurgents, terrorists and other criminals, as well as for disaster preparedness and other pre-disaster activities.
It does not include purchase of equipment or any indirect item. Sorry but we cannot give you the proof/guidelines you need as there is none. Smile

As what was opined before by one of our forum members, it would be safe if you will seek approval from higher authorities based on the existing LBC on purchase of vehicles and addressing DRRM ...
