    Whereas, the government has time and again stressed the need to alleviate poverty through minimizing graft and corruption in the bureaucracy under existing laws, among others, such as Republic Act No. 3019, as amended and R.A. 6713.chanrobles virtual law library

    Whereas, four lead government agencies, all of which are constitutionally commissioned to eradicate graft and corrupt practices and to implement ethical standards in the bureaucracy, are separately and jointly doing their share in minimizing this age-old problem;

    Whereas, there is a need to forge ties with all sectors of Philippine society to address this national problem of graft and corruption;

    Whereas, it is mandated by law that efficient and honest government officials and employees are recognized thru a system of rewards and incentives which will redound to preserve the integrity of the Philippine civil, policy and military services.chanrobles virtual law library
