The Bangsamoro Parliament is supported by the Secretariat in providing the Parliament Members with adequate, relevant, and efficient administrative and technical assistance that enables them to perform legislative tasks and responsibilities. The Secretary General heads the Secretariat and is assisted by different departments and divisions, including the Policy Research and Legal Services (PRLS).
The PRLS Office of the Service Director supervises the entire management operations, organizes Mandate-relevant activities, evaluates the works of the divisions, oversees legislative analyses and legislative briefs, facilitates legislative talks and workshops, initiates stakeholder’s partnerships, and manages its virtual presence. It has two divisions that carry and deliver specific focal service areas.
(1) Legislative Research Division produces policy analyses, committee bill reviews, policy notes, policy commentaries, and legislative fact sheets, and conducts legislative talks and workshops.
(2) Legislative Measures and Legal Assistance Division constructs legal reviews, committee bill reviews, legal opinions, legal commentaries, and legal primers, including legal assistance on Parliament-related issues, and conducts legislative talks and workshops.
