The president of the Valencian Federation of Provincial Municipalities, Rubén Alfaro, and the director of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, Joan Llinares, have held a meeting to establish ways of collaboration to help city councils to develop their anti-fraud plans.
The FVMP will inform all Valencian municipalities of the need to have an active anti-fraud plan of measures as of January 1, 2022 and different meetings will be held with municipalities and councils for the implementation of said tool by the consistories.
The president of the FVMP, Rubén Alfaro, has indicated that “it is about the landing in our consistories of a tool that will ensure the proper use of funds from Europe. Another step towards integrity, transparency and good governance in all public policies ”. In addition, he added that “from the FVMP we will put all the tools that are within our reach to facilitate this work for our municipalities”.
As published in the BOE last October, through Order 1030/2021 of the Ministry of Finance, “every entity, decision-maker or executor, that participates in the execution of the Recovery and Transformation Plan measures must have a Plan anti-fraud measures ”.
Any administration or even private intermediaries must establish risk maps, declarations of absence of conflict of interest, ethical codes, complaint mailboxes, alert systems, training courses for their managers or gift and confidentiality policies.
“The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency wants to help municipalities and provinces in the preparation of public integrity plans that have become a requirement after the approval of the Order of the Ministry of Finance 1030/2021 as a requirement to access funds Next Generation. To this end, the Agency has prepared the Guide “Public integrity plan: roadmap and facilitating annexes” which we have delivered this morning to the President of the FVMP “, declared Joan Llinares
