CITEM Clarification to COA Issue
The Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM) would like to clarify the recent online report by Rappler about the Commission on Audit (COA) that refer to the purchase of certain IT equipment in 2017 Audit Observation Memorandum (AOM).
To better fulfill its mandate in the increasingly competitive and connected global market, CITEM deemed it necessary to upgrade its IT equipment, as it has done in the past, to ensure fast, satisfactory and secure delivery of services to its stakeholders, especially towards the establishment of better communication systems and linkages to its international clientele (i.e. foreign buyers and counterparts).
