STATE auditors have told the Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (PNRI) to remit P1.6 million in collections and excess income to the national treasury. In a 2014 audit report on the PNRI, the Commission on Audit (COA) said that the agency has P1.634 million in unremitted collections/excess income to the Bureau of Treasury. “Had the agency remitted the excess collections on time, it could have formed part of the cash available for utilization by the national government for priority projects,” COA said. The PNRI was previously known as the Philippine Atomic Energy Commission which was created in 1958. It was placed under the supervision of the Department of Science and Technology.
