CLAIM: Vice President and presidential aspirant Leni Robredo has been claiming that her office has consistently received the Commission on Audit ‘s (COA) ”highest audit rating.”
FACT: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS “HIGHEST COA AUDIT RATING.” An agency being audited can only get an auditor’s unqualified opinion, qualified opinion, adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion. Even an unqualified opinion often comes with auditor’s notes and recommendations to correct deficiencies or errors.
As a matter of fact, in 2019, COA flagged the Office of the Vice President regarding its Angat Buhay program for poor planning and lack of documents:
OUR CONCLUSION: Robredo’s repeated claim is FALSE!
