Since last year, the National Anticorruption Secretariat ("SENAC") has enabled three methods for the public to denounce acts of corruption:

1) An online portal:

2) Two direct telephone lines: (021) 450 001/2

3) Personally in SENAC's offices

The reports may be made anonymously. Once a report is received, SENAC will contact the Anticorruption Office of the relevant public entity in order to initiate an internal investigation of the facts. Depending on the severity of the alleged conduct, SENAC may also inform the Public Ministry, so that it may initiate a criminal investigation.
