      I believe pwedi. Our office concern most is on the act not on the object of the act or deed.

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

    They urgently need lawyers sa National Office daw. Kaya malamang nakuha ka na kung nag-oo ka. E ako hinihintay pa daw yung item number ko from DBM. Tapos ipapublish pa daw. 10 years! Di ko alam if it’s worth the wait. Nag-apply din ako sa iba pero nganga! Haha.

        Ay hindi ako nag-apply sa DbM. Yung item number ng position sa BiR ang tinutukoy ko. Hehe. Kasi additional positions ang inopen, DbM daw ang magbibigay ng item numbers. Thanks ulit :)

        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.
