COA said the human resources officer needs to revisit the composition and corresponding functions of working for the establishment of an effective and efficient Human Resource Management System.

Otherwise, it said HR can restructure the office and update its mandates and functions to ensure the diligent performance of assigned responsibilities.

Meanwhile, it said the governor should direct the HRMDO to incorporate and implement in the major final output and targets of the office performance commitment and review.

On the other hand, the COA noted the provincial Capitol also awarded various purchase orders without validating the availability of drugs and medicines.

It said the Capitol needs to ascertain the capacity of the prospective supplier to deliver on time and to submit the required documents.
