2006 ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORT
Pursuant to Section 4, Article 1X-D of the 1987 Philippine Constitution, the Commission on Audit (COA) submits to the President and Congress, within the time fixed by law, an Annual Report covering the financial condition and operations of the Government. With this mandated function, COA, the Government Accountancy and Financial Management Information System (GAFMIS) Sector in particular prepares the Annual Financial Report (AFR) for the three sectors of the government (national, local and corporate).
This years AFR for Local Governments was based on the submitted 4,896 or 96.34 percent of the targeted 5,082 pre-closing trial balances (PTBs) and financial statements (FS) for the three funds, namely: General Fund (GF), Special Education Fund (SEF) and Trust Fund (TF) of 79 provinces, 117 cities and 1,501 municipalities. Of the 186 unsubmitted pre-closing trial balances and FS, 53 are for GF, 67 for SEF and 66 for TF. The regions with the most number of unsubmitted reports are from Region VIII 83 PTBs, Region IX 48 PTBs and ARMM 19 PTBs. The list of LGUs which failed to submit and which submitted the required financial reports after the cut-off date of June 15, 2007 is shown on pages 434-438, Volume III-B. Of the submitted financial reports, 210 are electronic New Government Accounting System (e-NGAS) generated reports from 71 LGUs (pages 432-433, Volume III-B). Compared to the 2005 submission rate of 98.27 percent, this years receipt is lower by 1.93 percent.
The consolidated 2006 AFR does not include the accounts of almost 42,000 barangays as they are still following the old government accounting system. However, starting fiscal year 2007, pursuant to COA Accounting Circular No. 2006-002 dated December 19, 2006, the barangays will adopt the New Government Accounting System (NGAS) using the Systems and Procedures Manual on the Management of Barangay Funds and Property. With this, the consolidated 2007 AFR for LGUs will include the accounts of all Local Government Units (LGUs).
In line with the Commission's constitutional mandate to promulgate accounting rules and regulations, the Philippine Government Accounting Standards (PGAS) was approved by this Commission under COA Resolution No. 2006-006 dated January 31, 2006 to ensure the promulgation of accounting standards that are attuned to international standards. Accounting Circular No. 2006-001 dated November 9, 2006 was issued prescribing the policies on the recording of certain transactions of LGUs under the cash accounts and the use of appropriate accounts under the NGAS to ensure proper presentation in the FS.
To carry out the provision of the Circular on the conversion of accounts, COA Accounting Circular Letter No. 2007-002 dated January 19, 2007 was issued providing guidelines on the submission of year-end FS and other reports/schedules for inclusion in the AFR for fiscal year 2006 and onwards.
This AFR is presented in two volumes as follows:
It is expected that the publication of this AFR will help in the promotion of transparency, good governance and accountability in the Local Governments and will be beneficial to the end-users. This report will be posted in the COA website www.coa.gov.ph and the financial highlights will be published in leading newspapers for the information of the general public and all concerned.
