In this regards, leaders are expected to take a major responsibility in setting example and enhancing supervision works in their respective agencies.
Moreover, there should be a clear disciplinary mechanism and zero-tolerance policy for public servants committing such acts.
The document stated leaders at local agencies would be held accountable for any act of corruption or harassment happens under their jurisdiction. They are also urged to regularly evaluate subordinates’ performance and address complaints, concern of citizens and businesses in a timely manner.
Local agencies should also continue to encourage public participation in the fight against corruption and harassment in administrative units.
