LINGAYEN --- The Provincial Accounting Office (PAO) has received a commendation from the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) for having been awarded as one of the country’s Outstanding Accounting Office (Provincial Level Category) in 2012.
The recognition came following the unanimous approval of the Provincial Resolution No. 164-2013 during the SP’s regular session last Monday.
Second district Board Member Raul P. Sison, author of the resolution, said the feat has been attributed to the unified effort of the entire accounting office under the leadership of OIC-Accountant Arturo Soriano.
Likewise, the PAO has been recognized for its competence and quality of work in the performance of accounting, controlling, auditing and other financial functions.
“The national award garnered by the Provincial Accounting Office will serve as an inspiration and worthy example for all offices and employees of the provincial government of Pangasinan to strive for excellence in the performance of their respective work,” Sison said in his resolution.
The award was given by the Association of Government Accountants of the Philippines (AGAP).
In related development, three SP members have also received congratulatory gestures from their colleagues via provincial resolutions No. 162 and 163-2013.
