A treaty refers to the meeting of minds between two people, one committed to the other, to give something or to do something.  The general rule of the Civil Code is that contracts are mandatory, in any form, subject to certain exceptions. Article 1357.Si the law requires a particular document or other form, as in the acts and contracts listed in the following article, the contracting parties may compel each other to comply with that form as soon as the contract is perfected. This right may be exercised at the same time as the contractual act. The PBDs contain, among other things, omnibus Sworn Statement, Bid Form and Contract Agreement mandatory forms.  Through these legislative powers, the GPPB also adopts resolutions and guidelines, including forms and manuals. At their end, they are mandatory for all contracting entities.  It is recommended that the use of a form other than that prescribed by the GPPB be discontinued, the first being: a) law; and b) in violation of public order. The second would consider these contracts to be valid, but irregular or illegal. The Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) has imposed a form of contract that follows the acquisition of jobs. But what happens if the purchasing entity designs and executes a contract that does not follow the prescribed form? What are the consequences of these discrepancies? Article 1356. Contracts, in any form, are binding, provided all the conditions of their validity are met. However, if the law requires that a contract be valid or enforceable in one way or another, or that a contract is proven in some way, that requirement is absolute and indispensable.
In such cases, the rights of the parties invoked in the following article cannot be exercised. On the other hand, public procurement, particularly those resulting from public procurement or through public procurement, constitutes a special contract, which is mainly subject to specific laws.
