Hindi sinasadya ang nangyaring mababang antas ng paggasta ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) sa kasalukuyang taon kung kaya’t kailangang ibalik ang tinapyas na pondo ng ahensiya para sa susunod na taon.

Ito ang naging paliwanag ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa kanyang hakbangin na ibalik sa ahensiya ang tinapyas na tinatayang P4.861 bilyon dahil umano sa nabanggit na pangyayari.

Sa pagsasalita sa plenaryo ng Senado sa budget deliberations ng TESDA, ipinaliwanag ni Lacson kung ano ang dahilan ng mababang paggastos ng ahensiya sa kasalukuyang taon.

“In 2018 they received the budget from the Commission on Higher Education in September. So there was little time to obligate. That is the reason why they have a very low obligation rate in 2018, only 58 percent,” paliwanag ni Lacson.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson on Thursday sought the restoration of some P4.8 billion to the budget of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), so it can fulfill its functions for the coming year.

Lacson said that while TESDA’s budget was slashed from P14.676 billion to P9.815 billion supposedly due to its low obligation rate, this was not its fault.

“In 2018 they received the budget from the Commission on Higher Education in September. So there was little time to obligate. That is the reason why they have a very low obligation rate in 2018, only 58 percent,” he said at the budget deliberations for the TESDA.

Ping: Na-promote at na-demote si Lapeña; Guerrero dapat magpakitang-gilas sa BOC

Promosyon pero demosyon.

Ito ang pagsasalarawan ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa pagkakatalaga kay dating Bureau of Customs (BOC) Commissioner Isidro Lapeña bilang pinuno ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), matapos ang kontrobersiyal na pagkakalusot ng tone-toneladang shabu.

Sinabi ni Lacson na bagama’t promosyon mula sa BOC ang bagong posisyon ni Lapeña bilang pinuno ng TESDA na tinuturing na Cabinet post, ito ay demosyon sa ibang aspeto.

“It may well be a promotion in rank and position, but definitely a demotion in trust and confidence,” ani Lacson.

Lacson: Incoming BOC Chief Has Big Boots to Fill

Newly appointed Bureau of Customs Commissioner Leonardo Rey Guerrero will have big boots to fill as he replaces the newly “promoted” Isidro Lapeña, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Friday.

But Lacson also noted that while Lapeña was promoted in rank and position, his transfer to a new post may well be a demotion in trust and confidence.

“It may well be a promotion in rank and position, but definitely a demotion in trust and confidence. It’s a pity because save for the big shabu shipment that got away, apparently due to collusion between the drug syndicate and some low-level Customs officials, former Commissioner Lapeña was doing a good job proven by consistently exceeding the Bureau’s target collections,” Lacson said.

“Having said that, the President has once again shown zero tolerance as far as his war on drugs is concerned,” he added.
