The COA head office has sent the contract that the provincial government submitted for its approval and the SMPHI opposition to its regional office in Iloilo for comment, Villa said.

It is now with the legal department of the COA regional office. After it makes its comments on the matter, the COA head office will decide on the matter, Villa said, but added that he did not know how long the process will take.moremoremore
