And these irregularities contain billions of scarce resources that are best suited to be used in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. And yet, despite the blatant anomalies, the President continues to defend Duque! What magic does Duque conjure up on Duterte? Is there an unholy alliance here? How would one explain the overpricing of face masks, face shields and personal protective equipment? What part of the world are they from? However, the COA gives the audited authority 60 days to explain and correct the deficiencies identified in the audit report and compliance with the COA recommendations. Before the Senate, Duque received reprimands from Senators Gordon and Hontiveros and implied negative reactions from the Makabayan bloc. Aside from the President, individuals responded to the COA’s report on DOH posted on its website, from which the media featured their news articles, which received mixed reactions, expressed their strong support in calling for the audit committee to maintain its independence, which “uncovered shortcomings in its examination of the way government funds were disbursed by government agencies”. A balance of powers to disburse and use public funds and assets to ensure that effective controls are in place to g. protect government financial assets and property to protect and improve effectiveness and efficiency and to be an important tool against corruption and misuse of public funds and property.
