    Statement of OVP Usec. Boyet Dy on the 2017 COA report

    An excerpt from a 2017 COA report noting the delay in the liquidation of some cash advances at the Office of the Vice President (OVP) was brought to our office for comment.

    All of the listed cash advances in the mentioned COA Report have already been fully liquidated.

    Furthermore, the OVP has instituted stricter measures to prevent similar delays. Full details of these steps taken by the OVP were communicated to COA in a letter sent in March 2018. These include clearer guidelines on the handling of cash advances and the withholding of compensation for accountable staff subject to the full liquidation of advances, consistent with COA’s own recommendations.

    Attached is the Office of the Vice President’s Letter to the Commission on Audit dated 19 March 2018
