With the intensified campaign of the new government and the Commission on Audit (COA) towards good governance, we've designed this one-day seminar to provide Local Government Units, National Government Agencies, Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations, public utility companies and private entities dealing with the government this comprehensive guide on how to avoid COA disallowances and best practices solutions to those encountering such problems.

This special program will feature the common findings of COA, Supreme Court Rulings, as well as remedies and defenses on cases that may be deemed as disbursements or transactions which are illegal, extravagant, unnecessary and unconscionable. We will address how you should handle notice of suspensions, notice of disallowances, and notice of charges to solve your problems as well as addressing issues on how a subordinate can escape liability for an irregular act of his superior.

We will also provide you updates on COA memoranda, circulars and resolutions that you MUST know to avoid disallowances. And if you are in the private sector and want to do business with the government, it's important to know how to structure your deals to avoid disallowances or getting implicated together with the public official or convicted of crimes involving irregular transactions.
