SHFC TO ISSUE HANDBOOK VS. GRAFT AND CORRUPTION

The Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) is issuing a Handbook laying down rules and regulations in a bid to make transactions with the key housing agency graft and corruption-free.

The Handbook also stipulates procedures on applications for business permits and other requirements to make approval of business applications faster and transparent.

The SHFC fully supports the Government’s campaign to eradicate red tape and corruption especially that its mission as a key government housing agency is to undertake socialized housing programs for low- income, homeless Filipinos who are the most vulnerable sector in our society, said SHFC president Atty. Arnolfo Ricardo Cabling , in the Foreword of the Handbook.

SHFC is issuing the Handbook, as the Ease of Doing Business and Anti-Red Tape Advisory Council, the policy and advisory body of the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA), is working to improve the country’s competitiveness rankings in time for the submission of its 2021 Doing Business report to the World Bank.
Doing Business, according to the World Bank, measures regulations across 190 economies in 12 business regulatory areas to assess the business environment in each economy. The Philippines jumped 29 notches in the World Bank’s 2020 Doing Business Report ranking 95th from its previous 124th rank. READ MORE

According to Cabling, the Handbook is SHFC’s contribution to the campaign launched by President Rodrigo Duterte against graft and corruption.

The Handbook is in support of Republic Act No. 9485 or the “Anti-Red Tape Act (ARTA) of 2007” that promotes integrity, accountability, proper management of public affairs and public property, and establishes effective practices to prevent graft and corruption in government, said Cabling.

The Handbook, adds Cabling in his Foreword of the book,  also supports Republic Act No. 11032, known as the “Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018,” that promotes ease in doing business through simple and improved systems and procedures of both national and local government agencies, and government-owned and controlled corporation

SHFC HANDBOOK VS. GRAFT, CORRUPTION; DOING BUSINESS IN THE PHILIPPINES

FOREWORD

This Handbook stipulates rules and regulations covering officers and employees of the Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) in transactions with the public in line with the Government’s policy aimed at preventing and reducing bureaucratic red tape and graft and corruption; and facilitating ease of doing business through simplified procedures.

The SHFC fully supports the Government’s campaign to eradicate red tape and corruption especially that its mission as a key government housing agency is to undertake socialized housing programs for low- income, homeless Filipinos who are the most vulnerable sector in our society.

The Handbook is in support of Republic Act No. 9485 or the “Anti-Red Tape Act (ARTA) of 2007” that promotes integrity, accountability, proper management of public affairs and public property, and establishes effective practices to prevent graft and corruption in government.

Likewise, this Handbook supports Republic Act No. 11032, known as the “Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018,” that promotes ease in doing business through simple and improved systems and procedures of both national and local government agencies, and government-owned and controlled corporations.

In compliance to RA 9485 and RA 11032, the SHFC Handbook lays down rules and regulations that require honesty, transparency and responsibility among its officials and employees; and adopts measures promoting transparency in transacting with the public, through simplified procedures aimed at expediting transactions on issuance of business permits, clearances and other requirements to eradicate reduce red tape and corruption.

The Government campaign against bureuacratic red tape, graft and corruption is a two-way street that not only requires the resolve of the SHFC to maintain a graft-free public service but also the cooperation of the transacting public.

While SHFC officers and employees are sworn to serve the public with integrity, honesty and transparency, the SHFC Management monitors, reviews and fine-combs all transactions as its contribution to make the Philippines corruption-free.

The SHFC enjoins the transacting public to report to SHFC Management or concerned government agencies violations of RA 9485 and RA 11032 and the rules and regulations under this Handbook by any of our officers or employees.
