Danilo Suarez: Big chunk of national budget not being used for basic services

Sep 14, 2018 @ 11:19

Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez, in his Manila Standard column, lamented how a huge part of the national budget is not being used effectively in the delivery of basic services.

The Quezon politiko explained that many national government agencies fail to efficiently utilize their annual budget.

“Based on records, most government agencies fail to efficiently utilize their respective budgets each fiscal year. In fiscal management, a low absorptive capacity of a government agency is a clear indicator of inefficiency,” Suarez said.

“Therefore, the bigger chunk of our nation’s wealth is not being used effectively for the delivery of basic services,” he added.

Suarez said he called for the downloading of the unused funds of government agencies to local government units last year.
