Mayor James “Bong” Gordon formally introduced Thelma Santiago Timbol as the new City Auditor of the Commission on Audit (COA), Olongapo City on August 19, 2008 at the Rizal Triangle Multi-Purpose Center.

Timbol is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and graduated cum laude with a degree on BS Commerce at St. Louis University in Baguio.

She was previously a State Auditor IV and a Team Leader of Sub-Cluster II consisted by Olongapo City, Masinloc, Palauig, San Antonio and Hermosa Bataan. She has been working for the government for over twenty three (23) years already since she started as State Auditing Examineer III in COA on 1984.

She also served in the Provincial Auditor’s Office as State Auditor II from 1991 until 1994 and as State Auditor III from 1994-2008.

Because of the numerous trainings and seminars she attended, such as ‘Fraud Investigation and Legal Evidence’, ‘Seminar on Risk-Based Audit’ and ‘Update on New Government Accounting System’, she was able to sharpen her skills as an auditor.

Some of the tasks accomplished by COA are annual audit reports, interim reports, confidential reports and audit observation memorandum.

“Mahalaga sa amin ang mga documents na isinusumite ng iba’t-ibang departamenmto kasi dito kami nagbi-base when it comes sa aming mga reports,” Timbol explained.

“Sa pamamagitan nito makagagawa tayo ng recommendations at remarks patungkol sa paraan ng paggamit ng pinansyal na aspeto ng lokal na gobyerno,” Timbol added.

Her father, who was an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), worked as a laborer in several countries overseas including Guam and Kuwait. All of his children graduated as professionals.

“Dugo at pawis ang pinhunan ng aking ama para kami ay makapagtapos kaya’t hindi ako naniniwala sa easy money,” Timbol said.

Timbol resides in Brgy. Bato, Palauig, Zambales with her husband and two children. She was born on November 7, 1962.

“Ipinagkatiwala ng mamamayang Filipino sa COA ang tungkulin na magsasagawa ng independent audits sa aspektong pinansyal ng ating gobyerno,” said Timbol.

“Isa itong malaking reponsibilidad na magpro-promote ng transparency at effectiveness pagdating sa government operations,” Timbol added.

“Handa akong tanggapin ang hamon na ito,” Timbol concluded.

Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. formally introduced Thelma S. Timbol as the new City Auditor of the Commission on Audit (COA) Olongapo office last August 19 during the Flag Raising Ceremony at Rizal Triangle Multi-Purpose Center.
