    NACPA - Multi-Sectoral Anti-Corruption Council

    The National Anti-Corruption Program of Action (NACPA) is an initiative for the convergence of anti-corruption efforts in the Philippines.  It is spearheaded by the Office of the Ombudsman under the leadership of Ombudsman Gutierrez.  One of the major objectives of the NACPA is to undertake the social marketing of anti-corruption efforts for greater public support and investor confidence.

    It was launched on March 17, 2006 through the signing of the Covenant to Support to the NACPA by representatives of the Executive Department, Legislature, Judiciary, Constitutional Bodies, Local Governments, Business Sector, Civil Society and Academe.  Their anti-corruption programs and projects are integrated under the NACPA.

    The Multi-Sectoral Anti-Corruption Council (MSACC) serves as the advisory and consultative body of the NACPA.  It is composed of members from sixteen sectors, both public and private, who act as focal persons to synchronize the projects under NACPA.
