By Jeffrey Damicog
Newly appointed Justice Undersecretary Juliana Gaviola Sunga has begun work at her post Monday (August 5) and has been instructed to look into the needs of regional and field offices of the Department of Justice (DOJ) nationwide.
"I have requested Usec. Lean Sunga to focus on asset management, procurement, and budget utilization," said Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra.
"We also have to speed up the procurement process para walang (so that there is no) underutilization of our budget," he added.
The DOJ chief also told Sunga to "give special attention to the needs of our regional and field offices."
These include office equipment and supplies, vehicles, security and maintenance services.
Malacanang appointed Sunga to the DOJ just last July 29.
Prior her appointment, Sunga worked at the Commission on Audit (COA).
Sunga replaced Bahay party-list Rep. Naealla Bainto-Aguinaldo who left her post at the DOJ to run in the recently concluded May 13 elections.
