This is in accordance with the Republic Act 11032 Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018, signed by former President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on May 28, 2018 amending the R.A. 9485 or the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007 which establishes the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA).
So, what is ARTA?
The Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) is an attached agency of the Office of the President that is tasked to oversee and implement the national policy on ease of doing business and anti-red tape in the Philippines.
Basically, it prohibits any fixer activities within and beyond the borders of the government when it comes to processes and doing business.
Why do we need R.A. 11032?
The law is about streamlining and improving the current systems and procedures of government services. It aims to reduce processing time, cut bureaucratic red tape, and eliminate corrupt practices.
How can businesses benefit?
What’s in it for the transacting public?
What is the standard processing time in completing applications?
Moreover, maintaining a transparent and harmonious work for processing government documents should still be a collaborative work between public servants and community. Together, let us work for a better Manolo Fortich that submits wholly to the law for it is just and beneficial to our part.
We thank you for your cooperation in maintaining a fixer-free community!
