The Bangsamoro Administrative Code (BAC) is one of the priority legislations that the Bangsamoro Parliament needs to pass before the end of the transition period. Currently set to be discussed on the Parliament floor during this week’s special session, the law will define the administrative structure, functions, and procedures of the regional government during and after its transition.

The said code is important in establishing the ministries and offices falling within the purview of the Bangsamoro government, while also outlining administrative procedures within said institutions. It will also define the conduct of relations between government agencies and the citizens of the Bangsamoro, as the regional government fulfills its mandate according to other existing laws.

Prior to the Parliament’s special session, the Committee on Rules has approved a report reflecting the latest version of the proposed code with amendments from the technical working group.
