This year, the National Airborne Service Corp, MOI (NASC) (2022), through recommendation, represented the Ministry of the Interior to compete for the “Transparent and Crystal Quality Award,” which is comparable to the Oscars in the anti-corruption community.
On July 1, the Agency Against Corruption (AAC), Ministry of Justice Deputy Director-general Feng Cheng and three external commissioners visited the National
Airborne Service Corp, MOI Taichung Station. NASC Director Ching Yen-Yuan personally led the supervisors of all levels to undergo a site evaluation. The evaluation items covered five themes: director-general’s determination and sustained actions, information and administration transparency, risk prevention and control and responsibilities, demonstration of anti-corruption effectiveness, and clear innovation and spread. The external commissioners listened to the NASC’s briefings and inspected the written data. Also, the station personnel gave a site tour that covered pilot mission preparations, the maintenance of UH-60 Black Hawk and Eurocopter SA365/AS365 Dauphin, aviation material storage, and various processes. 
Director-general Ching said that the NASC is the air guard agency that takes responsibility of citizen security. When people’s lives are in jeopardy or when society is dealing with major accidents, provided that the weather and environment permit it, the crew members always feel duty-bound to race against time and fly to the site to perform various tasks. So far, 7,660 lives have been successfully saved by the NASC.
Whether in procurement undertakings, talent selection or station construction projects, open and transparent measures are adopted. The self-maintenance capabilities of aircrafts have been actively improved, the supervision of commercial maintenance and contract has been fulfilled, the armed forces resource sharing (aircraft maintenance and training) have been coordinated, breakthroughs in procurement plights during aviation material preparation and replacement have been achieved. Vendor monopoly can in turn be prevented, thereby ensuring commercial maintenance quality, promoting aviation safety goals and substantially cutting down public funds by up to NTD 9.3 billion, with outstanding anti-corruption governance effectiveness.
