COA: Report on Covid-19 funds did not say there was corruption

No intent to malign DOH

The Commission on Audit (COA) on Thursday said it had no intention to malign the Department of Health (DOH) in publishing its 2020 annual audit report regarding the “deficiencies” in the department’s management of PHP67 billion worth Covid-19 funds.

During the virtual hearing of the House Committee on Public Accounts, COA chairman Michael Aguinaldo reiterated that the report did not mention any finding that funds were lost due to corruption.

“The auditors did not say that there were any lost funds and that any such lost funds would have been lost to corruption. Wala pong finding na ganun (There’s no such finding). so that’s why we issued that and I think that’s proof that there was really no intent to malign the DOH,” Aguinaldo said.
