COA Assistant Commissioner Susan Garcia said the 90-year-old Senator Juan Ponce Enrile had endorsed six Napoles-linked NGOs  to implement “livelihood projects” funded by his allocation from the PDAF, “The projects were done not in accordance with existing rules and regulations. All the nine Saros were not covered by endorsement letters and project proposals by the implementing agencies,” Garcia said. Inquirer

“As a guideline set by the GPPB, the NGOs should have been selected through public bidding or negotiated contracts,” In the case of Enrile, she said, the legislator through his then chief of staff Gigi Reyes arbitrarily assigned the Napoles NGOs or foundations as project implementers. Inquirer

Moreover, she said, the “legal and physical existence of the NGOs as well as the suppliers” of the livelihood kits were all “questionable.” “Many of the beneficiaries also denied receiving the livelihood packages and signing distribution receipts,” she said.. Inquirer
