Ms. Maria Liane L. Gayomali, Acting Director of DBM RO VI presented the FY 2023 National Expenditure Program (NEP) and she also mentioned that the 2023 targets are not harmonized and SUCs interpreted the targets differently. Thus, a need to align and harmonize all targets is necessary.

During his closing remarks, Dr. Joselito Villaruz, President of WVSU highlighted the importance of harmonizing all the reports to ensure transparency and accountability among SUCs.

“A harmonized reporting system will likewise provide an enabling mechanism for SUCs to identify targets, monitor performance and finally submit performance reports based on the identified common and unified matrix. This will ensure a harmonized understanding of our reports and serves as a channel for government to evaluate with transparency the accountability of SUCs not only in the region.” said Dr. Villaruz
