Sonny Dominguez refrain DOF officials from meeting at expensive venues
Finance Secretary Carlos “Sonny” Dominguez III has ordered all employees of the Department of Finance to refrain from meeting at expensive private venues so as to save government money.
Dominguez said meetings should be held instead at the Ayuntamiento de Manila, the Bureau of Treasury’s office in Intramuros. “In the interest of frugality, when choosing venues for meetings in Metro Manila that will cost the government money, the Ayuntamiento should be the top priority,” he said.
Any official of the DOF or its attached agencies who wish to conduct meetings in a private venue should justify his or her reasons for doing so before the Finance Secretary’s office, Dominguez added.
The Finance chief only a minimal fee will be charged for DOF officials who wish to use any of the Ayuntamiento’s function rooms as a venue for meetings.
