Nine months after the signing of the action protocol by the mayor, Jesús Villar, and the director of the Agency, Joan Llinares, the AVAF once again visits the municipality to teach
On Monday, March 6, 2023, in the multipurpose room of the local social center, the conference “Integrity, public ethics and fraud prevention in local administration” took place. The conference was presented by the mayor of the municipality and was given by AVAF technical staff.
The Sant Vicent del Raspeig City Council approved its Integrity Plan and anti-fraud measures in December 2022 and with this activity importance is attached to training in public integrity and corruption prevention in public administrations.
The Valencian Antifraud Agency, throughout the four hours of training, had the opportunity to share, with the more than 40 attendees, the analysis of the Valencian institutional framework in terms of public integrity and the novelties and obligations that the new state regulations entail in anti-corruption matter.
The training and awareness-raising day on integrity, public ethics and fraud prevention in the local administration in which the AVAF has participated has been addressed to elected officials, temporary staff, authorized nationals and technical staff of the administration.
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 public debate focused on the lack of human resources in the municipalities and on the difficulties of planning and executing public procurement, and also on the need for the selection processes for municipal personnel to be carried out in processes at the regional level. Likewise, the members of the corporation and public officials of the Sant Vicent City Council expressed their concern about the challenges that Law 2/2023 poses for them.
