Manila, Philippines — Nais nang i-abolish ng isang solon ang Department of Budget and Management-Procurement Service (PS-DBM) kahit pa napatunayan na ng House blue ribbon committee na walang overpricing sa COVID-19 na binili ng naturang opisina.

Ito ang isa sa rekomendasyon ng House committee on good government and public accountability  sa pangunguna ni Diwa Partylist Rep. Michael Aglipay.

“The Committee found that there was no overpricing in the purchase of materials, supplies, and equipment by the PS-DBM on behalf of [Department of Health],” ani sa Aglipay sa press briefing.

“The procedure on emergency procurement pursuant to Bayanihan Act One undertaken by the PS-DBM… was consistent with applicable rules and regulations. There was nothing irregular nor illegal in the procedure applied by PS-DBM.”

 “The Committee also recommends the abolition of the PS-DBM in order to streamline government functions and services,” dagdag ni Diwa.

“PS-DBM has outlived its purpose considering that all agencies now have their own procurement department and BAC (Bids and Awards Committee).”

Maaalalang naging matunog na usapin ang binili ng departamento partikular na sa mga face shield at iba pang kagamitan para sa COVID response. RNT/FGDC
