All government agencies, including state-run and -controlled corporations and financial institutions, are now crafting their Moral Renewal Action Plans (MRAPs) for implementation starting on May 14, according to the Presidential Anti-Graft Commission (PAGC).
The activity is in compliance with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo?s Administrative Order No. 255 ?directing the heads of the executive department to lead [in] moral renewal in their agencies,? effectively making the implementation of the Integrity Development Action Plan (IDAP) mandatory.
Ms Arroyo?s order capped four years of sustained conduct of the IDAP, the national anticorruption framework of the executive department involving 22 specific measures under four major areas of implementation?prevention, investigation and enforcement, education and strategic partnership.
The PAGC is to receive each agency?s moral renewal action plan.
?The MRAPs shall serve as our bases in monitoring and evaluating the agencies? adherence to and compliance with their own anti-graft programs, an implementation strategy consistent with the spirit of AO 255,? Secretary Constancia de Guzman, the PAGC chief, said in a statement.
