Electronic Service to Be Used More Widely to Curb Corruption

5 May 2017 (Readers 821)

 
All agencies under the Ministry of Labor have been instructed to accelerate the use of e-service and self-service systems more widely in order to curb corruption and prevent bribery, or any other illegal benefits.
 
Inspector-General of the Ministry of Labor Sutti Sukosol said that the Labor Minister attached great importance to the tackling of human trafficking in the labor sector, as this problem might lead to corruption practices. In this regard, the Minister told all labor officials to uphold the Governments policy of "zero tolerance toward corruption.
 
He said that apart from the use of the e-service and self-service systems, training in good governance has also been provided to raise the anti-corruption awareness among officials, promote morality, and facilitate public services for the people.
 
The Government takes serious action in adopting the principles of non-discrimination and zero tolerance toward corruption. It also promotes and supports private organizations and networks in looking out for and fighting corruption and malfeasance through the monitoring of provincial authorities via respective provincial Good Governance Committees.
 
In addition, the Government has supported the establishment of One-Stop Service Centers in order to provide convenience for the public by enabling them to seek public services at one single location. It has also improved the procurement system by applying Electronic Market (e-market) and Electronic Bidding (e-bidding).
 
Many government agencies have established various channels, such as hotlines, for accepting public complaints on matters related to their duties. In 2015, the Licensing Facilitation Act was announced as a new law that requires government agencies to prepare instruction manuals for the public and inform them of the methods, procedures, and timeframes, as well as necessary documents and fees required to receive services from them.
 
The Government is strongly committed to tackling the corruption problem through rights-based and transparent policies.
