Critical Notes(2) on Janlokpal (Political Ombudsman) Scheme - Case study Philippine(1A)

Ombudsman A Failure, Despite Flood of Funds

Ombudsman Ma. Merceditas N. Gutierrez herself has repeatedly cited a lack of funds, lawyers, and even time in the face of her Office’s progressively increasing caseload. She also points to these impediments whenever she rails against what she refers to as “recycled criticisms” that have painted her and the agency she heads as prone to bias and inefficiency, among other things.

In fact, far from a pittance, lots of money from foreign donor and the national budget have been the exceptional privilege of the Office of the Ombudsman since Gutierrez assumed her position on December 1, 2005. In the last five years thus, Gutierrez has not been lacking in funds, and has enjoyed access to more money than any of her three predecessors combined, and could afford to hire more than double the number of personnel they had been allowed to get.

The Ombudsman’s budget has tripled from P392.08 million in 2003 to P1.33 billion in 2009.

In five years under Gutierrez, the Office’s budget grew by an annual average of 21.35 percent, or twice more than the usually allowed increase in the budgets of most other government agencies.

On top of this, the Office has also received not less than $7.2 million or P316 million in four different foreign grants and assistance.

Among the Office’s fund infusions from abroad was a $6.5-million grant that was its share from the $21-million Philippine.

Before this, the European Union extended a $716,600 grant managed by the World Bank to help the Office set up its Case Management System software. Until the close of the project in March 2007, the Ombudsman never got to use the software, prompting the donors to cancel a third or $194,838.96 of the grant funds.

Under AusAid’s Philippines-Australia Human Resources Development Facility (PAHRDF) from August 2004 to June 2009, the Ombudsman also received funds.

Then in December 2009, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) funded two more projects.

That the Ombudsman has failed to produce more and better results in its campaign against corruption despite such windfalls could be traced to issues that money alone cannot resolve.
