  31. 31. JOKE LANG! The Contract Written by Louie Three contractors are bidding to fix the White House fence. One from the Philippines, another from Mexico and an American. They went with a White House official to examine the fence. The American contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works out some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says. "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.“ The Mexican contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.“ The Filipino contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers: "$2,700." The official, incredulous, says, " What? You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?" How do you expect me to consider your service with that bid? "Easy Sir," the Pinoy explains, "$1,000 for you, $1,000 for me and we hire the guy from Mexico“. R.A. 9184 Government Procurement Act
  32. 32. STATE AUDITING  the analytical and systematic examination and verification of financial transactions, operations, accounts, and reports of any government agency for the purpose of determining their accuracy, integrity, and authenticity, and classifying the requirements of law, rules, and regulations (Government Auditing Code of the Philippines)  PHASES OF THE AUDIT CYCLE SIXinvolves the activities of obtaining, examining, verifying, evaluating, of the audited agency. The purpose of this is to have a 1. Preliminary surveyand reporting agency actions and decisions working knowledge to gather the needed information on the legal, policy and administrative environment of the agency concerned. 2. Review of legal and policy framework within the agency operates, and the plans, policies, objectives, and standards it has adopted. 3. In depth examination of the agency’s internal control system. 4. Preparation of draft report and presentation to agency 5. Finalization of the report 6. Follow-up on the implementation of audit recommendation
  33. 33. FUNCTIONS OF COA as per Sec. 2, Art. IX-D of the 1987 Constitution Auditorial function - covering all govt. accounts having to do with revenues and receipts and all expenditures or uses of public funds and property as well Rule-making for accounting and auditing -COA is mandated to prescribe accounting and auditing rules and regulations to be observed by government agencies in the management of their financial operations and as bases in the review and appraisal of such operations Prevention of irregular, unnecessary, excessive & extravagant expenditures-this function elevates and meaningfully strengthens the once passive role of the government auditor relative to excesses and irregularities in government transactions
  34. 34. FUNCTIONS OF COA Reportorial function-through the annual report of the COA, the country’s executive and legislative arms are kept posted on the financial state of the government three annual reports prepared by COA: (1) Annual Report on National Government, (2) Annual Report on Local Governments, (3) Annual Corporate Summary Recommendatory function for improving efficiency and effectiveness-this provides the legal basis for the modern thrust in state audit called the three Es – economy, efficiency, and effectiveness audit Limited accounting function-COA is mandated to perform a limited accounting function, because ordinarily, an audit office does not carry out accounting functions Quasi-judicial function-COA exercises adjudicatory power. Any party, whether a public officer or private person, aggrieved by the decision, order or ruling of the Commission, may elevate the matter to the Supreme Court for Certiorari Report on expenses of the national assembly-the records and books of accounts of the National assembly shall be open to the public in accordance with law and such books shall be audited by the COA, which shall publish annually the itemized expenditures of each member Other functions as may be prescribed by law
  35. 35. 1. As to timing a. PRE-AUDIT – is the examination of financial transactions before their consummation or payment. It is basically a control device and hence an integral part of accounting which is a managerial function b. POST-AUDIT – refers to the examination of financial transactions after payment has been made. Note: in both cases, the review may consist of : i. determining whether all regulations relevant laws have been observed in the transaction ii. Physical inspection of supplies or equipment; iii. Checking whether all necessary documents are submitted and properly accomplished iv. Determining whether the required authority or approval has been secured; v. Checking mathematical accuracy
  36. 36. 2. As to Organizational Status of Auditor  Related to the lifting of pre-audit and installation of post-audit is the definition of the status of the auditor. There are two possibilities: Having an (a) Internal Audit, or an (b) External Audit. a. INTERNAL AUDIT – Is mainly a function of management. In here, the auditor heads the internal control system of an agency and his or her activities are considered forms of pre-audit. - The agency can use internal audit as a tool for control and evaluation of management operations. It is considered a part of the functions of the audited agency with the view of achieving regularity, efficiency, economy, and effectiveness in agency operations, especially in large organizations. b. EXTERNAL AUDIT - Is what the COA does. The COA Auditors are independent of the audited agency. - Under the Constitution, external audit by the COA cannot be replaced by internal audit or any private external audit. - While the internal auditor may conduct audit of his agency, only the COA is authorize to conduct government audit. - Unlike internal audit, external audit is called upon to give a professional opinion on the fairness of presentation of financial statements.
  37. 37. 3. As to Audit Scope a. FISCAL AUDIT – is the traditional financial audit in government. It is a combination of financial audit and compliance audit. i. FINANCIAL AUDIT – is the most widely practiced type of audit in the private sector. - it is performed primarily through an examination of financial statements in order o express an opinion on the fairness with which the financial condition and results of operations of an audited entity are presented. - in the government, the constitution requires COA to submit an annual report on the financial condition and operation of the NG and its subdivisions, instrumentalities, and agencies, including GOCCs. ii. COMPLIANCE AUDIT - is an evaluation of the extent to which the agency has complied with pertinent laws, policies, and rules and regulations in the conduct of its operations - the auditor tests the agency’s financial transactions and specific program, function or activity to determine their legality or regularity.
