Senator Mar Roxas on Wednesday chided executive officials for not following a clear process in the approval of public-funded projects, particularly the National Broadband Network project.
"After hearing the testimonies of Cabinet members, I am alarmed at how nobody is taking responsibility for approval of a project whose scope falls under several agencies, thus requiring a coordinated approach to policy design and implementation," said Roxas, chairman of the Senate committee on trade & commerce jointly hearing the Senate probe on the NBN deal.

"How did we get this far that $330 million is going to be borrowed? How did we get this far that we now have Senate hearings?" the Senator said at yesterday's hearing.
He lamented that even the Government Procurement Policy Board would not claim jurisdiction over the NBN deal, on the basis of the project being an 'executive agreement.'
