Prevention and training are the key tools in the fight against corruption and essential functions of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, where it focuses many of its efforts.
The obligation to prepare an anti-fraud plan for entities that manage projects related to the Transformation, Recovery and Resilience Plan, recently published in Order HFP 1030/2021, of September 29, published in the BOE on September 30. of 2021, has been present as a legal novelty to highlight.
EU Directive 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and of the Council of October 23, 2019 on the protection of persons who report infringements of Union Law and its transposition into Spanish law, together with the anonymous report, as a source of information that will have to be verified by public employees with investigative functions, have been some of the topics covered in the course.
Whistleblower protection, the importance of planning and conflict of interest regulation are issues that have been present throughout the AVAF director’s conference.
