The Cagayan provincial board, according to a Northernforum.net article, has given the Provincial Development Council (PDC) en banc 10 days to refine the 2018-2022 Provincial Development and Investment Program (PDIP).
The provincial board on February 14 remanded the PDIP for supposed irregularities.
The Committee on Finance and Appropriations said “most, if not all, PPAs (Programs, Projects, and Activities) have no program of work.”
Vice Governor Melvin Vargas called on the PDC to follow the budgeting process.
“Malinaw na malinaw po na maraming violations po ang nandito po sa pagpasa ng PDIP na hindi konektado ang ating PDPFP (Provincial Development and Physical Framework Plan) o long term plan kumpara mo sa updated medium-term plan natin at ang ating annual plan,” the Cagayan politiko said.
“Nasa kanila po ang bola. Gawin naman nila ang trabaho nila, hindi yung magpapasa sila dito sa sanggunian na maraming irregularities,” Vargas said.
