Geneva, Switzerland — The Governing Body of the International Labour Organization (ILO) has formally accepted and endorsed the comprehensive report prepared by its external auditor, the Philippines’ Commission on Audit, for 2023.

Presented by COA Chairperson Gamaliel Asis Cordoba, the report includes the consolidated financial statements for the same period, which have been submitted to the 112th Session of the ILO for deliberation and adoption.


Cordoba was assisted by COA Commissioner Roland Café Pondoc

during his presentation, while Audit Team Leader Assistant Commissioner Lito Martin was also in attendance.


COA’s audit experience with the United Nation (UN) spans over 40 years. Since 1984, COA has audited 17 UN offices during its 18-year incumbency as member of the United Nations Board of Auditors (UNBOA).

In 2008, COA became the external auditor of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) with a 12-year audit mandate and in 2012, it became the external auditor of the World Health Organization (WHO) for eight years.

Further, COA began its audit mandate for the ILO in 2015 and United Nations Industrial and Development Organization (UNIDO) in 2019. The audits are undertaken twice a year.

The independent auditor and external auditor reports are presented by the COA chair to the governing bodies of the UN organizations. These include the ILO Governing Body, the WHO Assembly and FAO Finance Committee.
