President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday urged government agencies to "simplify" the process for releasing aid and to "do away with delay." 

"Simplify the giving of the money by asking for a proposal, then that proposal should not be studied by days or months. You just review it," he said in a speech aired Tuesday. "If it says that it's for food, g*******, you give it." 

Duterte said complaints on aid delay would be "forwarded to the Ombudsman for immediate action." 

The Ombudsman "can suspend you anytime", he told officials.
