Nueva Ecija LGU to settle P245M in suspensions, disallowances
by Allan Yves Briones
The city government of Gapan, Nueva Ecija was tasked with sorting out its outstanding delinquencies, totaling P245.1 million by the end of 2018.
According to the 2018 annual audit report, the city government’s suspensions totaled P195.62 million, which could easily transition into disallowances, of which P49.48 million was already recorded.
“Corresponding (notices of disallowance) will be issued for the unsettled suspensions which already matured into disallowance,” the Commission on Audit (COA) said.
Notices of suspension are issued against agencies for pending compliance with various requirements for transactions which could cause loss to the government.

Of the P49.48 million disallowance balance, for example, P28.01 million was from an alleged cost deficiency in the construction of the Gapan City Town Center, as evaluated by state auditors.
An appeal was reportedly filed at the COA Central Office, after it was denied in the regional level.
