SC Upholds COA Disallowance of Disbursement for Malabon Consultancy Contracts

Post by engrjhez® on Thu Jul 19, 2012 9:00 pm

The Supreme Court En Banc has unanimously dismissed the petition for certiorari filed by former Vice Mayor of Malabon Arnold Vicencio seeking to annul Decision No. 2008-022 of the Commission of Audit (COA), which upheld Audit Observation Memorandum (AOM) No. 2005-12-019 declaring improper a disbursement for consultancy services contracted by Vicencio worth P384,980 for the year 2005.

In a 13-page decision penned by Justice Maria Lourdes P.A. Sereno, the Court En Banc held that no grave abuse of discretion may be imputed on the COA for the issuance of the decision as it was “made in faithful compliance with its mandate and in judicious exercise of its general audit power as conferred on it by the Constitution.”
