#NotOnMyWatch website, an anti-corruption initiative
Organisation: Rappler (Philippines)
Publication Date: 04/07/2017
DescriptionAt the onset of the presidency of Rodrigo Duterte, the 8888 hotline was launched as a national grievance system for corruption. This was one of the main highlights of this administration that ran on a platform against drugs and corruption. Though wide and far-reaching, the hotline had its limitations - capacity and transparency. The #NotOnMyWatch platform brings the same idea online to increase transparency in government performance. It's a unified ticketing system for handling grievances including corruption and bribery allegations as well as positive feedback on agencies. Feedback data is collected in a unified, systematic, and transparent manner, and mapped/visualized real-time to get a sense of where corruption and good governance is happening. http://www.rappler.com/move-ph/issues/corruption/147340-notonmywatch-chat-bot-report-corruption-commend-good-public-service Currently, each agency handles its own feedback management which makes rerouting feedback that should be addressed by other agencies difficult. Through the #NotOnMyWatch system, access to this kind of data becomes easier. People don't need to go through several layers of bureaucracy to gain permission and access. In the absence of an actual Freedom of Information (FOI) Law, consolidating and publishing of crucial datasets are driven by citizens and media. Not only does the platform exist to store these grievances, it is also a part of larger campaign to help shift mindsets of Filipinos to start reporting corruption. Based on a 2012 study initiated by the Office of the Ombudsman, only 5% of people who experience corruption report it. The #NotOnMyWatch campaign aims to encourage more citizens to report through Rappler's main news portal through stories (that include embeddable web forms), social media call outs, and even a Facebook Messenger chat bot that guides people through the step-by-step reporting process. Some stories published out of these reports are: http://www.rappler.com/move-ph/issues/corruption/158532-land-registration-authority-complaint-fixers http://www.rappler.com/move-ph/issues/corruption/158232-fire-extinguishers-inspection-bfp-corruption
