Hi! I would like to request a copy of the BCDA MOA with DND dated June 5, 1998 for the clearing of Philippine Marine Corps facilities  and Navy Officers Quarters, structures/facilities and utilities in Bonifacio Naval Station and relocation of said facilities to the relocation sites designated by the DND/AFP.

Good day sir! You marked my request successful under this thread:

I would first want to clarify that it is the 1998 and 2017 MoA I am requesting for. Second, i could not find the enclosed copy of the requested files. The reply in the linked thread states "I enclose a copy of the information you requested". I want to clarify if there was a file left unattached, or if the file was for pick up? Thank you.
