GOOD GOVERNANCE

As a Filipino citizens’ group, NAMFREL's commitment is to actively participate in strengthening democratic institutions and processes. It highly encourages the involvement of citizens in this enormous task of guarding democracy. NAMFREL believes that it is only by harnessing the power of an informed and concerned citizenry that free, orderly and clean elections, as well as honesty in government, can be achieved.

Aside from conducting parallel counts during elections, NAMFREL is also involved in anti-corruption and good governance programs such as medicine and textbook monitoring programs, and participation in bids and awards committees of various government agencies.

In between elections, NAMFREL engages in anti-corruption and good governance programs with the Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Health (DOH) and select government agencies and bureaus.

Medicine Monitoring Project (MMP)

In 2004, former Health Secretary Manuel Dayrit and NAMFREL founding Chairman Jose S. Concepion, Jr. signed a Commitment of Support and Agreement for the implementation of the Medicine Monitoring Project in public hospitals and regional health offices. The project focuses on the monitoring of procurement, delivery, and inventory of priority drugs and medicines in 71 DOH hospitals and 16 regional health offices nationwide. The purpose of the program is to improve the efficiency in the delivery of health services by ensuring transparent public bidding, preventing fictitious delivery and to ensure that the distributions of medicines reach the recipient hospital on time.

Department of Education - GWatch Textbook Count

NAMFREL’s partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd) to ensure transparency and enhance access to education services started with its participation in the National Textbook Delivery Program: “Textbook Count” in 2003 when DepEd through Undersecretary Juan Miguel Luz sought the support of NAMFREL through its extensive network of volunteers at the local level. Over 37 million copies of textbooks amounting to P1.3 billion pesos have been monitored from pre-bidding, printing, to delivery both at the district and the school level nationwide.
