The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency and the SGISE sign a protocol to launch the complaint boxes and the Integrity Plan

Valencia, April 5, 2023.- The president of the Societat Valenciana de Gestió Integral de Serveis d’Emergències (SIGSE), José María Ángel Batalla, and the director of the  Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, Joan Llinares, have signed a collaboration protocol between both institutions that will help promote the Integrity Plan in which the Emergency Service is working.

Within the general lines of the Integrity Plan, the implementation of complaint mailboxes, both internal and external, is contemplated, thus complying with the requirement of the new Law 2/2023 regulating the protection of people who report on regulatory infractions and the fight against corruption.

With this Law published in the BOE on February 21, the European Directive 1937/2019, on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union Law, better known as the Whistleblowers Directive, is transposed into Spanish law.

The SIGSE will enable as an external channel of denunciations the mailbox of denunciations of the Agency which will be visible on its website. This mailbox guarantees the confidentiality of whistleblowers as well as allowing the possibility of being able to make complaints anonymously.

The collaboration between both institutions will also extend to other actions and activities such as those of a training nature where emergency service personnel will receive training in aspects related to the promotion of ethics and public integrity, as well as the prevention and detection of situations constituting fraud and corruption.

The SGISE Integrity Plan will contain, among others, an institutional declaration of integrity; incorporating institutional integrity into strategic planning; enabling a specific internal whistleblowing channel and connecting to the Agency’s external whistleblowing channel; the regulation and management of conflicts of interest; the training of personnel in integrity or the promotion and dissemination of the culture of ethics and public integrity.

The president of SIGSE José María Ángel, stressed that “through this framework agreement the public company will intensify actions to apply  the practices of transparency and good governance in  the entity that manages the forest fire service”.

José María Ángel has shown his satisfaction after signing this agreement.  “We will walk together in order to achieve a double objective. The first is to provide greater transparency to management, because that is a basic and inalienable principle  in any activity related to public entities and bodies.” Secondly, he continued, “this agreement also guarantees greater access to  citizen information  to  these entities and, as a consequence, we bring our management closer to society.”

For his part, the director of the Agency, Joan Llinares, hashighlighted “the  importance of signing a collaboration protocol between the Agency and SIGSE, the entity responsible for extinguishing forest fires that will allow compliance with the new Law on the protection of persons reporting corruption and the consolidation of higher levels of ethics and public integrity”

Denia City Council and the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency collaborate on integrity training


The collaboration between the Denia City Council and the Agency for the Prevention and Fight against Fraud and Corruption of the Valencian Community (AVAF) began in December 2022 with the signing of a protocol that marked the starting point for the emergence of joint projects .

The training activities for the promotion of ethics and public integrity, as well as the prevention and detection of fraud and corruption risks are part of the agreed protocol and have given rise to the conference “Integrity, public ethics and fraud prevention in the administration local” held on Tuesday, April 4 in Dénia.

The workshop was presented by the councilor Francesc Josep Roselló Sirero and was given by AVAF technical personnel who had come to the town.

The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, throughout the four hours of training, had the opportunity to share with nearly 70 public employees and elected officials of the municipal corporation the Valencian regulatory and institutional framework in the fight against corruption, as well as the novelties and obligations entailed by the new state regulations on the protection of whistleblowers of regulatory infractions, Law 2/2023.

Anselm Bodoque, head of the Training Service of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, presented the public policies for the prevention of fraud and corruption, as well as the reason for being and functions of the AVAF. The culture of public integrity promoted by the AVAF and the prevention of risks in decision-making in the local administration was the subject addressed by Pilar Moreno, a technician from the Agency’s Training Service. In turn, Marita Oliver, an AVAF training technician, focused her speech on the basic aspects of the anti-corruption cycle.

The participation of the attendees came hand in hand with the “Conflict of interest and public integrity” workshop led by Agency staff, as well as the use of gamification tools that made it possible to warn that the risk that most needs to be addressed in the decision making is the lack of planning.

Public contracting, the lack of planning in the management of administrations, as well as the need to update the plan of anti-fraud measures due to the novelties contemplated in Law 2/2023 focused the public debate that took place in the last part of the day formative.

The Denia City Council approved its Anti-Fraud Measures Plan in February 2022 and with this activity importance is attached to training in public integrity and corruption prevention in public administrations.
