    RP gets $20-M US grant for anticorruption drive

    Inquirer News Service

    THE UNITED STATES has given the Philippines a grant of $20 million (P1.1 billion) to fund programs to address corruption and raise the level of transparency in public service.

    The grant will be administered by Millennium Challenge Corp. (MCC), a US state firm that provides assistance to promote economic growth in poor countries, said Finance Undersecretary Emmanuel Bonoan.

    Bonoan said the grant would help strengthen the finance departmentís Revenue Integrity Protection Service (RIPS) that conducts lifestyle checks on officials and employees of agencies, such as the Bureau of Customs and the Bureau of Internal Revenue.

    Matthew Lussenhop, the US Embassy spokesperson, said the grant was intended to help the Philippines qualify for the Millennium Challenge Account, a major US initiative to help selected countries. The MCA has a $1.5 billion funding for 2005.

    The Philippines, however, failed to make the list of qualified countries because of its problems with corruption.

    But it qualified under the threshold program, making it eligible to seek US grants to help it improve on its areas of weaknesses to finally qualify for the MCA. Michelle V. Remo

    ang unang tanong na pumasok sa utak ko e, kaninong bulsa kaya papasok yang grant na yan nyahahahaha! wala pa naman auditing ang mga grants na yan, e di binulsa na lang yan ni tabatsoy FG!

    gaya ng owwa funds pag uutang ka ngayon sa owwa sasabihin sa iyo wala pondo. and lately lahat ng records nila after 2003 nawala daw nabura sa computer! i found this out 2 weeks ago when i renewed my oec at poea, pinagbabayad ulit ako ng owwa fee. nung sabi ko kakabayad ko lang sagot ba naman sa akin nabura daw lahat ng records 2003 pataas sa computer so dapat produce ko ang receipt! utot nila noh, nasa akin pa ang burden of proof kung nagbayad ako! sabi ko sa kanila, nabura o binura kasi inuurirat na kung ginamit sa election nung 2004? ayun bigla kunwari tinignan yung passport ko tapos ok na daw next year na daw ako magbayad. just imagine 6 million ofw's, assume 1/3 of that go home every year = 2 million. then X P1275 per ofw = P2.550 billion per year collection! tapos nawawala records from 2003 upwards! and wala pondo! galing nila ha! so saan napunta binayad ng mga ofw's sa owwa for the last 3 years??????
