The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency participates in the selective course for entry-level secretaries, auditors and treasurers (internal promotion) at the INAP


Madrid. – November 17, 2023

“Key transformations in local administrations” was the round table in which the AVAF had its presence in the selective online course organized by the National Institute of Public Administration.

Good governance, the promotion of integrity and the prevention of fraud as drivers of transformation of public administration has been the topic addressed by Pilar Moreno García, AVAF training technician in the round table related to public management, one of the subjects addressed in the common block of the selective course for national qualified students.

Prevention, Detection, Correction and Prosecution is the new ABC of the fight against corruption, where integrity systems and internal information systems have emerged as implementation tools.

The more than 250 local administration officials with national qualifications who participate in the selective entry-level internal promotion course at the National Institute of Public Administration have had the opportunity to reflect on the most common difficulties in the field of good government and the fight against corruption.

One of them is not taking into consideration the obligations of local entities contemplated in Law 2/2023 of February 20, regulating the protection of people who report regulatory infractions and the fight against corruption, such as the implementation of internal information systems.

The AVAF made available to students a bibliography and survival kit that includes guides, recommendations, AVAF catalogues, as well as the “Integrity Code of the Valencian Community” downloadable here.

The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency presents its complaint mailbox to organisations and entities throughout Europe in Brussels

Brussels, November 17, 2023.- The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency participated in a conference organized by Transparency International in Brussels in which representatives of different entities, governments and associations dedicated to the fight against corruption from all over Europe participated.

The first part of the day focused on the implementation of whistleblower protection best practices across the EU to combat corruption and showcased the work being done by representatives of the European Union Directorate-General for Justice, members of Transparency International Hungary and representatives of the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice.

The second session focused on the advantages of secure and easy-to-use online platforms such as GlobaLeaks to denounce corruption and in which representatives from Slovenia, Finland and Italy and the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency showed their experience.

Javi Alamá, head of systems of the Agency, was in charge of presenting to all the attendees the accumulated experience of the Agency in the last 5 years when it comes to receiving and processing complaints. To this end, it presented data and statistics on the use of external open source reporting channels. It also showed videos of the Agency’s staff in charge of handling complaints in which they explained their experience and shared recommendations and a set of good practices that were very well received by the participants.

In addition to secure reporting channels and effective systems for acting on whistleblowing, strong legal protection is essential to incentivise people to report corruption and other malpractices. To find out the extent to which EU countries protect whistleblowers, Transparency International examined the laws protecting corruption whistleblowers in 20 Member States against key EU requirements and best practices.
