How much is the Architectural Fee of the winning team if the Project is implemented?
BCDA, as a state-run entity or GOCC (Government Owned and Controlled Corporation) is subject to RA 9184: Government Procurement Act. Thus, in the actual implementation of the Housing Developments, the Detailed Engineering and Construction would be subject to a bidding.
Should the winning design be considered for implementation, the winning team/architect will be acknowledged as the Designer of the Housing Developments. The intellectual property right will remain with the winning team/architect but the submitted materials will become the property of BCDA. Kindly review the Forms, Waivers & Declarations given as part of the Competition Kit.
