No procurement plan in Batuan, Masbate
The municipality of Batuan in Masbate failed to prepare its Annual Procurement Plan (APP) and Project Procurement Management Plan (PMMP) which would have meticulously laid out the procurement plans of the local government unit as a fiscal disciplinary measure.
In a 2016 report, the Commission on Audit (COA) said that the procurement activities of the local government unit in 2015 were not guided by an APP and PPMP, “thus, depriving them of the benefits that could be derived from well planned and managed procurement activities.”
The management vowed to require each department heads to prepare and submit to the General Services Office their respective PPMPs so that a consolidated APP may be formulated by the Bids and Awards Committee.
The COA urged the municipal mayor Charlie Yuson III to have the department heads prepare their respective PPMPs so that a consolidated APP may be formulated by the Bids and Awards Committee.
