Mandate and Function

Act No. 7160 otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991 guarantees and promotes the autonomy of local government units and ensures their fullest development as self-reliant communities and effective partners in development and progress.

The code encourages the Local Government Units to engage in ventures other than the traditional mandate in pursuance of genuine people of empowerment.

The provincial government of Bulacan, realizing the potential of its human resource whose literacy rate is already 98% in 1989 endeavored to develop an alternative tertiary institution for the less privileged Bulakenyo. The result of these efforts is the Bulacan Polytechnic College.

Republic Act No. 7796 also known as the Technical Education and Skills Development Act of 1994 mandates the development of tertiary education for human resource capability (capacity) building and encourages private and public sector partnership in developing tertiary education.

The provincial government of Bulacan, in a move to further institutionalize the development mission of the BPC, approved its charter on September 29, 1997, by virtue of Sangguniang Panlalawigan Resolution No. 97-550. This further defined the purpose of providing vocational and technical instruction and training in entrepreneurship and technical education. This also gave the college a corporate identity and defined also the existence of a Board of Directors composed of twelve (12) members. However, on February 12, 2013, the 2012 Revised Charter was approved by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan. Meanwhile, on July 27, 2017, another revision of the BPC Charter was made in accordance with the CMO no. 42 s. 2016 with Provincial Ordinance No. 41-2017.
