The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) discusses how the government generated almost a quarter of a million government positions during the first two years of President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.
Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno also talks about the misconceptions, early procurement practices as well as the ways for agriculture sector to move forward.
Diokno clarified that early procurement is not a new practice because it is guided by circulars to guarantee compliance with the procurement law.
Under the current administration DBM stresses that they will not overlook what Camarines Sur Rep. Ronaldo Andaya Jr. has been saying like how contractors are not being “promised” projects.
Diokno pointed out “some people do not like reforms. I have been doing reforms all my life. I will keep pushing for reforms. Think about why they do not want these reforms.”
