      1. Add ko lang, concern lang tayo sa object or subject ng act of notarization when we are talking about the fees.

      1. First time pa lang maghi-hire ng lawyers ang DBM-Procurement. Pero kami sa DBM-Legal Service, Attorney III, SG 21. May vacancy rin sa Legal Service kasi kakaalis ko lang dun at wala pa yata ako replacement. Dumaan lang sa office namin yung taga procurement humihingi ng referral sa 2 lawyers na kailangan nila. Wala pang assigned Salary Grade and its subject for negotiation believe it or not.
