Deputy Chief for Operations
However, Deputy Director General Emil Sarmiento, PNP deputy chief for administration, admitted that Puno sits during deliberations of the PNP Bids and Awards Committee (BAC).
"He sits down at times doon sa proceedings namin kasi siya ho iyung ating undersecretary for peace and order. Overseer ho natin siya, but the BAC has been acting very independently," Sarmiento told ANC Top Story.

There is also still no official word on who will replace Sarmiento as the PNP's 4th highest official.
I was told that the chairman of the PNP Bids and Awards Committee then, now retired PNP deputy chief for administration Emil Sarmiento, and the other members of the committee even vowed to resign from their respective position in case that any attempt to rig the process, just like during the Arroyo administration, would be discovered.

I learned from highly reliable sources that the chair of the PNP Bids and Awards Committee, PNP deputy chief for administration, Deputy Director General Emil Sarmiento, and the other members of the committee vowed to resign from their respective positions in case that any attempt to rig the process, just like under the Arroyo administration, would be discovered.

Sarmiento is unperturbed as it's all part of the job. On Monday, he told me that he would have more time taking care of his apo.
