The HB seeks to amend Sections 53 and 54 of Republic Act (RA) 9184 concerning the negotiated procurement and the terms and conditions for its application.

It seeks to impose the following conditions on Section 53 (b) of RA 9184:

  2. The negotiation shall be made with a previous supplier, contractor or consultant of good standing of the procuring entity concerned, or a supplier, contractor or consultant of good standing situated within the vicinity where the calamity or emergency occurred; and
  3. The procedures for the conduct of public bidding shall be closely observed;
  4. The procuring entity shall ensure that the most advantageous price for the government is obtained;
  5. The prices agreed upon shall be considered as fixed prices, hence, not subject to price escalation during the contract implementation, except under extraordinary circumstances and upon approval of the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB);
  6. The resort to negotiated procurement and the preferred supplier(s) and/or contractor(s) shall be published in two newspapers of general circulation before the conclusion of the contract;
  7. All bidding documents shall be readily made available to the public during office hours.
