Among the anomalies unearthed by the Office of the Ombudsman was the irregular contract entered into by Jejomar Binay with an architectural firm tasked to design the Makati Science Building.

Other anomalies include the fake bidding for the construction of the Science Building which was hastily awarded to Hillmarc’s Construction. Despite their claim that they published invitations to bid from the six-phase project, investigators found NO such published invitations when they checked newspaper archives at the National Library.

All six phases of the construction were awarded to Hillmarc’s.

Aside from these graft and falsification charges, the Binays are facing other charges in connection with the overpriced Makati Parking Building, aka the Makati City Hall Building 2.
