Unpaid bills at PAF flagged

Font Size

THE COMMISSION on Audit flagged the Philippine Air Force (PAF) for its laxity in imposing sanctions on military personnel for unpaid electricity and water bills and delinquent occupancy in its housing facilities. According to CoA’s annual audit report for 2018, bills on electricity, water, rentals, and garbage collection amounting to P21.8 million and charged to military personnel and concessionaires were not collected on or before their due dates. CoA noted, on the other hand, that PAF has been paying for light and water consumption out of their regular fund for 2018. “The non-collection of outstanding balances may be attributable to lenient/laxity in the enforcement of policy set by each filed bases in connection to collection of outstanding balances. Furthermore, the Command failed to impose sanction to occupants with delinquent accounts, such as but not limited to: disconnection of electricity and water, cancellation of revocable permit/contract, and eviction,” said the report. — Vince Angelo C.
