What is the prohibition on splitting of contracts?

Splitting of Government Contracts, means the division or breaking up of government contracts into smaller quantities and amounts, or dividing contract implementation into artificial phases or sub-contracts for the purpose of evading or circumventing the requirements of R.A. 9184 and its IRR, particularly the necessity of competitive bidding and the requirements for the alternative methods of procurement. Splitting of government contracts is prohibited. For infrastructure projects to be implemented by phases, the Procuring Entity shall ensure that there is a clear delineation of work for each phase, which must be usable and structurally sound. It shall also ensure the conduct of the detailed engineering activities for each phase as provided for in Annex “A” of the IRR of R.A. 9184.
