Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 29) — Vice President Leni Robredo ends her term on a high note after her office receives the highest audit rating from the Commission on Audit for the fourth straight year.

“We were granted an unqualified opinion by the Commission on Audit for the 4th straight year (2018-2021)!!! What a fitting exclamation point to our six years at the Office of the Vice President,” Robredo tweeted Wednesday, a day before her term ends.

The COA gives an “unqualified opinion” to a government office if it fairly presented its financial report. The rating means that an entity's financial statements adhere to generally accepted accounting principles, and fairly represent the entity's financial account.

Robredo’s office also received a recertification from the International Organization for Standardization last year.

Despite the lack of funds, the OVP provided online medical consultations, free COVID-19 swab tests, dormitories for healthcare workers, among others amid the pandemic.

OVP’s flagship anti-poverty program “Angat Buhay” will be relaunched as a non-government organization starting July 1.
