Pangelinan: DOA in non-compliance

Guam - Department of Administration Director Benita Manglona says chairman of the Legislative Committee on Finance, Senator Ben Pangelinan, should have known her agency wouldn't be able to keep up with submitting monthly and weekly financial reports. Manglona defends when the governor transmitted the budget to the Legislature last September; he informed them it would be difficult if not impossible to do. 

In a letter to Manglona, Senator Pangelinan pointed out the financial reports were mandated in law, which was authored by Governor Eddie Calvo when he was a senator. "He had mentioned in the letter that his was Governor Calvo's bill back in 2007. Well, back in 2007, it was a different story, and the Legislature had very limited access to the AS-400 and Senator Pangelinan was given access in 2009 and all these information that he's requesting he can look at it in the AS-400 online and it's available to him."

Another reason why she hasn't submitted the reports is because she is understaffed. In the meantime Manglona has volunteered to show Ppangelinan how to use the AS-400 system if he needs help.
