MANILA, Philippines, November 28, 2013 – The Commission on Audit (COA) celebrated today the first anniversary of its Citizen Participatory Audit (CPA) Project, the Commission’s transparency initiative recently awarded as the "Bright Spot" of the 2013 Open Government Partnership Summit in London.
In her keynote address, COA Chairperson Maria Gracia M. Pulido Tan said, "I have always believed that all of us in government are ultimately accountable to the people we serve. They have the constitutional right to know if their money is being spent properly and judiciously by their public servants. This CPA Project has been designed to do just that – to directly engage citizens in accounting for the effectiveness and efficiency of government projects."
