MANILA, Philippines – Mas mababa ng P845 milyon sa kasalukuyan ang proposed budget ng Commission on Audit para sa taong 2023.

Ito ang inihayag ni House appropriations panel senior vice chairperson Stella Quimbo nitong Biyernes, Setyembre 23 makaraang tanungin ni Kabataan party-list Representative Raoul Manuel kasabay ng plenary deliberations sa proposed P5.268 trilyon spending plan.

“From GAA (General Appropriations Act) 2022 to NEP (National Expenditure Program) 2023, it is less than P845 million,” ani Quimbo.

“Compared with what was requested by COA, it is less than P723 million. The main impact of these is would affect the operations of 10 provincial satellite audit offices,” dagdag pa niya.

Dahil dito, ipinanawagan naman ni Manuel sa mga kasamahan sa kamara na dagdagan ang budget ng COA dahil sa malaking ambag nito sa pamahalaan.

“We hope we can support the COA because they are our partners in preventing corruption in government,” ani Manuel.

“They have a big role in ensuring transparency, and so I hope we can support their efforts,” diin pa niya.

Naniniwala naman si Quimbo sa mga sinabi ni Manuel patungkol sa ahensya. RNT/JGC
