MANILA — The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) clarified reports that the agency failed to liquidate some P27 million in cash advances.
OWWA chief Carmelita Dimzon said the report on the unliquidated cash advances was based on a Commission on Audit (COA) report done in 2009, and that her office had already submitted an updated liquidation statement.
“The P27.3 million has been fully liquidated,” Dimzon said.
Dimzon said the recipients of the cash advances had made the liquidation on time, otherwise, they could not have received their funds for the first quarter of 2010.
According to Dimzon, cash advances have been used mostly for on-site welfare programs, such as repatriation, reintegration preparedness and on-site trainings.
Part of the cash advances also went to maintenance and other operating expenses such as office rental, utilities, office supplies and salaries for administrative staff.
