The existence of enormous amounts of discrepancies in PPE account balances of government agencies has become a perennial issue and caused the non-establishment of the accuracy of the PPE balances presented in the financial statements.

This two-session program aims to provide ALL attendees the knowhow of proper implementation of guidelines and procedures for the one-time "big-time" opportunity to de-recognize non-existing/ missing PPEs and/ or to clean up discrepancies or unreconciled balances in your organization's PPE accounts.

This is applicable to all branches of government such as the executive, legislative and the judiciary and including GOCCs, GFIs, LGUs, water districts, government hospitals, state and local universities and colleges.
