This is the same DepEd that wants to have the $465 million (P21.7 biillion) Cyber-Ed Project. And yet, as the COA audit report says, it cannot even manage effectively such simple tasks as writing and delivering textbooks and using and maintaining computers.

1) DepEd failed to distribute 2.51 million textbooks and instructional materials worth at least P186.96 million. They were found “stored in the schools’ stockrooms or used as references in libraries for reasons such as, oversupply and deficient textbook contents.

2) The COA also found that computer packages worth P138.84 million in public schools were not used “due to lack of resources, facilities and technical capability to operationalize the PCs for Public Schools Project.”

3) The COA discovered that 349 computer packages worth P115.7 million were used by the school administrative offices instead of the students because they schools were not ready to implement the computerization project.(Si Sir and Ma’am pala ang gumamit, hindi yung mga tudyante).

Of the 349 units, 280 computers were found in the offices of principals and district supervisors and 13 units were defective.

It is a good thing we have a COA that does some auditing.
