On the following provisions on Eligibility Criteria:

"23.6. Eligibility Criteria

23.6.1. For the procurement of goods:

1. Subject to Section 4 of this IRR, the following manufacturers, suppliers and/or distributors shall be eligible to participate in the bidding for the supply of goods:

a) Duly licensed Filipino citizens/sole proprietorships;

b) Partnerships duly organized under the laws of the Philippines and of which at least sixty percent (60%) of the interest belongs to citizens of the Philippines;

c) Corporations duly organized under the laws of the Philippines, and of which at least sixty percent (60%) of the outstanding capital stock belongs to citizens of the Philippines;

d) Manufacturers, suppliers and/or distributors forming themselves into a joint venture, i.e., a group of two (2) or more manufacturers, suppliers and/or distributors that intend to be jointly and severally responsible or liable for a particular contract: Provided, however, That Filipino ownership or interest of the joint venture concerned shall be at least sixty percent (60%); or

e) Cooperatives duly registered with the CDA.

My questions are:

1) Why subject the eligible Philippine nationals to Section 4 of the IRR? I think only non-Philippine nationals should be subject to Section 4 and this is already provided for in the last paragraph of the Section.

2) Why not include GOCCs, which are legally, financially and managerially autonomous, operate under commercial laws, and are not dependent agencies of the Procuring Entity or the Government of the Philippines. Government-sequestered/acquired or Government-subsidized corporations, as well since they were allowed to be eligible under Sec. 23.6.2 for the procurement of infra projects?
