Implementation of the Prime Minister's Directive No. 10 / CT-TTg on enhancing the handling and effective prevention of harassment and trouble to people and businesses, the State Treasury has built a program of information dissemination thorough propaganda to all cadres and civil servants about the prevention and fight against corruption.

Accordingly, the State Treasury has identified areas that can generate corrupt behavior in the system, focusing on certain positions and operations, and on that basis, promulgating ethical standards and lifestyles of officials and employees in the system. At the same time, promulgating the Regulation on 10 disciplines of the State Treasury sector so that each cadre and civil servant clearly defines the orientation, cultivating and training; conducts training courses on office culture for 100% of cadres and civil servants.

The State Treasury system has also improved the quality of operations, accelerated administrative reform, modernized technology and strengthened the inspection and supervision to effectively prevent embezzlement, corruption, waste and ensuring the thrifty and efficient use of money and assets assigned by the State to the State Treasury for management.

In this period, the State Treasury system continued to effectively implement the "One-stop-shop and one-teller" model, continue to improve and simplify the procedures of budget revenue and expenditure in the State Treasury field.

According to the State Treasury, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, from the beginning of March 2020, the State Treasury decided to suspend the inspection and examination plan during the outbreak of the disease in accordance with the direction of the competent authorities and focus on self-inspection, researching new mechanisms and policies to implement the tasks right after the pandemic is brought under control. Therefore, in the first four months of 2020, the specialized inspection of the State Treasury only reached 0.5% of the plan. Besides, the State Treasury also completed 122 of 960 internal inspections (about 13% of the plan in 2020).

Particularly, the reception of citizens, the settlement of complaints and denunciations, according to the State Treasury, at the beginning of this year, there have been two cases of citizen reception; has received and processed 23 complaints, denunciations and feedback petitions (of which six complaints, 14 petitions, three petitions, reflections). To date, the State Treasury has resolved or forwarded 16 complaints to competent authorities and is handling seven complaints and denunciations.

Since the beginning of the year, the State Treasury has promptly handled cases in the system, and urged and summarized the results of the State Audit's recommendations on financial management and public assets in 2018 of the State Treasury to report to the Ministry of Finance and send to the State Audit on time.

The units of the State Treasury regularly implement the Law on Prevention and Fight against Corruption; Law on Thrift Practice and Waste Combat. Every year, the State Treasury publicly discloses the assets of the leadership and officials and public employees subject to asset declaration in accordance with the Law on Anti-corruption.

Promote administrative reform, transparency of business processes

One of the things that helps the prevention of corruption effectively by the State Treasury is to promote non-cash payments through the State Treasury, create more favorable conditions for transaction units, and improve service quality and customer satisfaction. The State Treasury has also strengthened the application of information technology to notify changes in account balances to units using the state budget, contributing to preventing and limiting risks and losses for units using the State budget.

In addition, the State Treasury has planned to develop annual legal documents, strategic projects for submission to competent authorities for approval, of which regularly review legal documents, promptly detecting and handling illegal documents or modifying contents according to its competence, overcoming loopholes that may cause trouble for people and businesses.

The State Treasury has drafted and submitted to the Government for promulgation of Decree No. 11/2020 / ND-CP dated January 20, 2020 on stipulating administrative procedures in the State Treasury field.

In particular, it has simplified the implementation process, diversified the way of implementation, reduced the composition of documents, shortened the time for processing procedures, and especially specified the roadmap for implementing online public services at level 4. By the end of 2020, 100% of transactions must be conducted on public services at level 4 (except transactions related to security and defense). This can be considered a major reform for the State Treasury system.

In order to continue the implementation of the Prime Minister's Directive 10 / CT-TTg, the State Treasury strengthened the direction of the implementation and strictly carried out the inspection, examination and development of monitoring mechanisms to detect violations of officials and public employees under their management responsibilities. In particular, focus on reorganizing inspection and examination activities, especially specialized inspection in accordance with Directive No. 20 / CT-TTg of the Prime Minister; avoid overlapping and harassment during inspection activities. Strengthen inspection and examination of public duties, especially the implementation of the code of conduct, what civil servants and officials are not allowed to do and accountability in the performance of official duties.

The State Treasury proposed the form of commendation and encouragement for organizations and individuals to follow; promptly detect and propose handling of violations and strictly handle officials and public employees who have committed negative acts of corruption and harassment to people and enterprises.

In the future, the State Treasury will continue strengthening the internal inspection and specialized inspection in the fields of state management, under the responsibility of the State Treasury, especially sensitive areas, which are at risk of corruption. At the same time, strengthening the responsibility of the leader for self-inspection on anti-corruption; seriously and effectively implement recommendations and decisions on handling after inspection. Continue to carry out specialized and internal inspections. The State Treasury strives to complete the proposed inspection and examination plan in 2020.
