The GCG Whistleblowing Web Portal allows the user to access the status of his/her report for up to three years after its resolution. Until a report is resolved, the whistleblower may continue to update the report by uploading files to support the report.
Whistleblowing Reports may be dismissed for a lack of merit, directly forwarded to the GOCC concerned, or further investigated on, among other things. Investigation of reports may result to: referral to the appropriate government agency or to the GOCC for appropriate action, GCG sending recommendations to the Governing Board or to the Office of the President.
The timing of resolution of the reports depend on the complexity of each case. Nevertheless, GCG allocates the appropriate resources per case, as some complex cases in the past have been handled by more than one personnel.
