The Department of Education Division of Davao City was hailed as one of the 2017 Outstanding Accounting Offices in Government by the Association of Government Accountants of the Philippines (AGAP) during the 2018  Annual National Convention held at the Iloilo Convention Center, Iloilo City, last October 17-20, 2018, with the theme, “ Maginahwa, Matatag at Panatag na Buhay: Ambisyon Nating Tunay.”alt

AGAP gives awards to the outstanding government accounting offices for the quality, timeliness and accuracy of the financial reports; this is primarily done upon the recommendation of the Commission on Audit (COA).
“An organization is only as strong as the unity which its members have. Without unity, chaos, cut throat competition and confusion will prevail,” AGAP National President Tina Rose Marie L. Canda said during the Opening Ceremonies of the AGAP 2018 Annual National Convention.  alt

According to Ma’am Loradel Baricaua, Division Accountant of DepEd Davao City, the Accounting Department of the Division Office, will perform its inherent function in conscientiousness, in perpetuity. “As accountants, we will continually do what is expected of us, which may include but are not limited to the processing of benefits for school teachers, payment, downloading of school Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE), and the submission of financial reports,”  Ma’am Baricaua said in an interview.

The DepEd Davao City Division was one of the awardees along with other offices in the Local Government Unit (LGU’s), Government Owned and Controlled Corporations (GOCCs), State Universities and Colleges (SUCSs), and the National Government. alt
