On June 21, 2022, the AGIA, represented by President Marissa N. Fabricante, Immediate Past President Hideliz Marie A. Laranang, Executive Vice President Liezl F. Entrata-Pangan, Vice President for Internal Affairs Editha D. Morales and Director Dinah E. Pichay had a courtesy meeting with the NPC officials, i.e. Commissioner Atty. John Henry Du Naga, Atty. Manuel Satuito, Mr. Erwin Espenilla, Ms. Teresa Paragas, Ms. Kristine Martirez, Ms. Marilou C. Leelian and Atty. Lee Anne Santos-Javier for a possible collaboration.
The meeting turned out well with advantageous and collaborative efforts for both parties, with the NPC giving a one-day orientation to the AGIA Board of Directors and staff with an opportunity to take the Data Privacy Officer (DPO) Level 1 Certification examination plus a half-day free webinar for the AGIA members. In turn, the AGIA will provide technical assistance to NPC in their plan to institutionalize Internal audit. Both parties are looking forward to these collaborative initiatives significantly contributing toward good governance and internal audit.
