DOTr launches anti-corruption portal

MANILA, Philippines – The public can report incidents of corruption within the Department of Transportation (DOTr) through an online portal launched recently.

It was activated on Tuesday as part of the anti-corruption measures being implemented upon orders of Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade.

The public can report any corrupt activities involving officials and employees of the DOTr and its more than 20 attached agencies through the website, according to spokesman Assistant Secretary Cherrie Mercado.

She urged the public to use the portal or call the DOTr hotline 7890 for any complaints or issues, which will help them police their ranks.

The DOTr is also set to reactivate its Public Concerns Action Center, as well as dedicate a Digital Media Group to take action on all complaints on the agency’s social media accounts.

Mercado assured the public that they are looking into reports on a regular basis, although they have limited resources and personnel assigned to their complaints center.

“We’re sharing this with you as well as launching our corruption portal,” she said.

“We have 20+ agencies and we’re trying to shorten the business processes.”

Mercado said the launch of the portal and the hotline is line with the coming Christmas season.

Tugade has issued a strict “no-gift policy” for all his officials in the coming holidays, she added.

There will also be no solicitation for Christmas parties, which will only be allowed if it is department-wide.
