Resolution No. 07- 224

WHEREAS, Iligan, is the home to major industries that produces steel, cement, coconut oil, flour, power, chemicals, plastic pipes, bricks and others. As to manpower needs, Iligan is among the cities in the country that possessed competent contractors, world-class engineers, highly-skilled carpenters, masons and technical men;

WHEREAS, in employing thousands of people, these companies generate revenue to the host barangays and the City Government;

WHEREAS, in doing their business, Iligan-based corporations are competing with corporations operating outside the city, in the process threatening the existence of some Iligan firms. Moreover it was also noted that some winning contractors of City Government projects are hiring skilled workers from other places, though such workers are available in IliganCity;

WHEREAS, patronizing products not locally-produced and hiring workers not from Iligan, siphon money out of the city, while local businesses no matter how small, strengthen local economies by circulating the economy within the city;

WHEREAS, for the city locally-based economy to develop and to lessen unemployment problem, there is a need to encourage local consumers to support local businesses and workers by patronizing goods and services of companies that use Iligan labor and Iligan made-products and to instill in them the habit of buying Iligan-made products;

WHEREAS, the Iligan City Government is embarking on several flagship projects, like the Water Improvement Project, Material Recovery Facilities, Government Center, and infrastructures like bridges and concrete roads, etc., the vital material components like steel, cement, pipes and the like are produced in Iligan City;

(Page 2 of Res. No. 07-224)

WHEREAS Section 43 of Republic Act No. 9184, entitled “ An Act Providing For The Modernization, Standardization And Regulation Of The Procurement Activities Of The Government And For Other Purposes” states:

“ Procurement of Domestic and Foreign Goods. – Consistent with the country’s obligations under international treaties or agreements, goods may be obtained from domestic or foreign sources and the procurement thereof shall be opened to all eligible suppliers, manufacturers and distributors. However, in the interest of availability, efficiency and timely delivery of goods, the procuring entity may give preference to the purchase of domestically-produced and manufactured goods, supplies and materials that meet the specified or desired quality”

WHEREAS on

March 14, 2007, a public consultation was held at the LegislativeBuilding where participants shared their ideas which were incorporated in the ordinance;

WHEREFORE, on motion of Member Orlando M. Maglinao, duly seconded by Member Wilfredo R. Bacareza;
