Anti-fixer campaign (Philippines)

In Manila, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) has designed new “Anti-Fixer Campaign” posters to underscore the need to campaign against any act of fixing. These posters are to be posted in conspicuous places in government agencies to inform the public about their rights. This policy builds on the impetus provided by the Anti-Red Tape Act (ARTA) of 2007, which imposes stiff penalty on fixers. In parallel, agencies receiving the public are being asked to provide all-day service, and the "no-noon break" policy is also widely advertised.
See previous post (December 2011). Because this is such a powerful idea to inform the public and combat corruption, this item is filed in our Best Practices category.
