THE COMMISSION on Audit (CoA) has flagged the past administration of Pasig City under former mayor Robert C. Eusebio for buying P951.787 million worth of supplies, but only used P196.137 million. The annual audit report of CoA showed that the city government made excessive procurement of supplies and materials such as food for distribution worth P22.432 million, medicines worth P12.610 million, textbooks and other educational materials worth P15.284 million. “Procurement of supplies and materials were made beyond the normal three-month requirements,” said CoA. In the report, the Pasig City government commented that “it is presently executing a more comprehensive plan that would tend to correct erroneous procurement projections.” On the other hand, CoA noted that Pasig City recorded P10.883 billion in revenue collection in 2018, a 22% increase from 2017’s P8.942 billion. — Vince Angelo C.
