Scope of Audit

A comprehensive audit was conducted on the accounts and operations of Carlos A.

Hilado Memorial State College for the Calendar Year 2011. The audit was aimed to ascertain
whether financial transactions were carried out in accordance with existing laws, rules and

The audit procedures and techniques applied included the verification and analysis of
accounts, inspection, interviews with the school officials and faculty and other procedures
necessary to afford a reasonable basis for our findings and observations.

A Value-for-Money audit was also conducted to ensure the economy, efficiency and
effectiveness in the carrying out of the agency’s programs/projects, activities and/or management
of its resources.

Auditor’s Opinion on the Financial Statements

The Auditor rendered a qualified opinion on the accompanying financial statements of

the school due to its failure to conduct physical inventory of its Property, Plant and Equipment
amounting to P246,289,263.93 and, the Due from Officers and Employees amounting to
P4,344,057.40 which could not be ascertained as of December 31, 2011.

Significant Findings and Recommendations

1. The agency failed to conduct physical inventory of its property, plant and equipment for CY
2011 amounting to P246,289,263.93 contrary to the provision of Section 490 of the
Government Accounting and Auditing Manual (GAAM), Volume 1 thereby, rendering the
account doubtful.

We recommend that a yearly physical count of its properties be conducted. The Inventory
Report should contain the actual status of the assets whether it is unserviceable, scrap or
already junk so that proper adjustments in the books can be made. Properties with no
available historical records should be appraised/revalued by an Appraisal Committee created
by the head of the agency.
2. Unliquidated Cash Advances has further increased to P4,344,057.40 as of December 31,
2011 due to non-liquidation within the prescribed period and additional cash advances were
granted even though the previous ones were not yet liquidated, contrary to Section 89 of
Presidential Decree No. 1445, thereby misstating the assets and government equity accounts.

We recommend that the Agency should refrain from granting cash advances to officers and
employees with outstanding cash advances to prevent the accumulation of the same. Adhere
strictly to the policy that no additional cash advances shall be granted to officials and
employees with unliquidated cash advances.

We further recommend the withholding of salaries of personnel who failed to settle their cash
advances within the prescribed period until such time that the amount is fully settled as
provided under COA Circular No. 97-002 dated February 10, 1997.

3. Procured furniture, fixtures and equipment amounting to P2,680,159.62 were not issued
Acknowledgment Receipt for Equipment to the respective official/personnel is contrary to
Section 492 of GAAM, Volume 1 thus, responsibility for care and safekeeping thereof were
not lodged to the end-users. Further, accountability for the equipment in case of loss, could
be hardly established.

We recommend that the school issue the necessary Acknowledgment Receipt for Equipment
(ARE) of properties issued to its officials/personnel in order to establish accountability and
control in its proper use and care. Henceforth, all issuances of properties shall be covered by
ARE in compliance with Section 492 of GAAM, Volume 1.

4. Payment of Representation and Transportation Allowance (RATA) to personnel/officials

amounting to P904,000.00 were not in accordance with the provision of R.A. No. 10147
(GAA, FY 2011), National Budget Circular No. 404 dated March 29, 1989 and R.A. No.
8292 (Modernization of Higher Education Act).

We recommend that management

a. Comply strictly with the provisions of NBC Circular No. 404 to ensure that only
authorized officials are allowed payment of RATA.

b. Stop the payment of RATA pending justification and submission of legal basis.

5. Procurement of 520 pieces of Steel Armchair aggregating P416,000.00 is questionable

because the contract was not awarded to the lowest complying bidder thus, defeating the
purpose of competitive public bidding mandated by R.A. 9184.

We recommend that the agency adhere strictly to the provisions of R.A. 9184 in the awarding
of contracts to the lowest calculated responsive bidder which is the most advantageous to the
We recommend further that the BAC submit a written explanation why the contract was
awarded to the Industrial Power Control System, Incorporated when Hardy Marketing
Enterprises offered the lowest bid.

6. Overtime claims amounting to P232,543.25 were not deducted of withholding taxes in

violation Section 79 of the National Internal Revenue Code thereby depriving the
government of much needed revenue to finance its obligations.

We recommend that the Accountant adhere strictly to the provisions of the National Internal
Revenue Code to withhold the corresponding taxes from overtime pay of officials/personnel
in accordance with the BIR rules and regulations.

7. The Chairman, Members and Secretary of the Board of Trustees continues to claim per
diem/honoraria per board meeting at the rate in excess of what is allowed under National
Budget Circular No. 2007-510 which resulted to over payments amounting to P 57,250.00.

We recommend that management shall require the members of the Board of Trustees to
refund the amount in excess of the prescribed rate. Furthermore, discontinue the payment of
honoraria that is more than what is allowed by our rules and regulations.

8. The submission of year-end financial reports was not timely resulting in the delay in the
review of financial statements of the agency contrary to COA Circular No. 92-89E dated
March 4, 1992.

We recommend that the Accountant adhere strictly to the provision of COA Circular No. 92-
89E in order not to hamper the review of accounts of the agency and effect the timely
submission of the Annual Audit Report.

Likewise, we recommend that additional employees be augmented in the Accounting

department to ensure compliance of all reportorial requirements.

9. The practice of the Accountant of not attaching Journal Entry Voucher (JEV) in financial
transactions hindered post audit work especially in determining the veracity of accounting
entries contrary to the provision of Section 112 of Presidential Decree 1445.

We recommend that the Accountant submit the CY 2011 Journal Entry Vouchers (JEVs) and
henceforth include it as supporting document of financial transactions in order to determine
the accuracy of the accounting entries.
