However, in view of SOCPA`s intention to base remittances on a legal basis and to provide for the possibility of conducting sentence checks, it is preferable, in general, that the assistance provided during the investigation or prosecution be subject to a formal written agreement between the offender and the Public Prosecutor`s Office. Offenders who wish to assist through testimony and benefit from an agreement under SOCPA should, with caution, fully acknowledge their inequity (see below). The SPC is responsible for monitoring the number and types of SOCPA agreements issued annually by the SPC. This anonymized data is collected for the annual publication. There is no centralized recording of the details (names, offenses, etc.) of each convention. .
