The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has added a new feature on the electronic Transparency and Accountability Initiative for Lump Sum Funds (e-TAILS) website which will allow citizens to give feedback on how lawmakers spend their Priority Development Assistance Funds (PDAF).


e-TAILS is a management information system programme that keeps track of government lump sum spending. It aims to help the government, citizens, and other relevant stakeholders not only accurately monitor PDAF releases, but also allow people to scrutinise how their money is allocated and spent by their elected officials.


According to DBM, the new feature allows citizens to post comments and upload photos or videos as feedback on PDAF-funded projects.


“We’re keeping pace with an audience that uses the internet as their main information resource. More important, however, is the fact that we’re also giving concerned citizens an interactive online venue where they can give honest feedback on PDAF projects,” Budget Secretary Florencio Abad said in an official statement.


Meanwhile, DBM Undersecretary and Chief Information Officer Richard Moya noted that the new feature in the eTAILS website further strengthens DBM’s commitment to increase citizen awareness and engagement, specifically with respect to PDAF use and management.
