114th Year of State Audit
MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Audit (COA) launches today its new website designed in accordance with the Integrated Government Philippines (iGovPhil) project of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
Since its creation in 1999, this is the first time that the COA website has been upgraded to include a more user-friendly layout, interactive pages, a domain-wide search tool, and sideby- side preview of pages in separate sites, among other improvements.
COA Chairperson Maria Gracia M. Pulido Tan said the project is part of the Commission’s commitment to strengthen its relationship with its various stakeholders and to increase transparency and accountability in government. “It is my personal advocacy to make COA a more transparent agency by making the features of our website easier for the public to navigate. We commit to timely and up-to-date posting of reports, news and other COA documents.”
Officials of the Commission on Audit assessed the Strategic Plan 2012-2014 and outlined activities to sustain the programs under the four pillars at a command conference held at the SAADO Auditorium from January 27 to 30, 2014.
Chairperson Maria Gracia M. Pulido Tan updated the officials on the programs that are already in place under the four pillars (Integrity and Independence, Organizational Efficiency, Professionalism and Technical Competence, and Strategic Partnerships and Linkages) and outlined the activities needed to institutionalize the reforms for sustainability.
“We have made significant strides in terms of heightening our credibility and trustworthiness. Though we are still part of the government, we must stand our ground and guard our independence. We must also integrate all the resources and harness them to make our work more effective,” Chairperson Pulido Tan said.
