Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address? Since the COVID-19 pandemic was officially declared a national disaster in Indonesia in March 2020, the Indonesian Government has allocated a budget for handling COVID-19 amounting to 677.20 trillion. There are various components in the budgeting including health, social protection, housing incentives for low-income people, business incentives, Micro Small and Medium Enterprises support corporate financing, and sectoral assistance Ministry / Institution and local governments. In supporting effective budget management, the Government has developed an information portal related to the budget for handling COVID-19 on the page http://www.kemenkeu.go.id/covid19. The information portal provides various infographics and regulations associated with managing the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia. However, information related to the realisation of the COVID-19 budget at the central and local government levels is not yet accessible for the public. What is the commitment? COVID-19 budget handling disclosure provides the public information about the realisation of funds regarding COVID-19 at the national and regional level How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem? One of the causes of the ineffectiveness of the COVID-19 budget is the lack of community involvement in monitoring and supervising. The COVID-19 budget information portal that can provide detailed information will help the public 57 participate in the monitoring and implementation process. Supervision of the COVID-19 pandemic emergency budget is needed because such huge budget allocation is prone to abuse and corruption. Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? This more detailed COVID-19 budget information portal departs from the public's need to obtain information regarding the realisation of a more comprehensive budget. Community involvement will minimise the COVID19 budget implementation's ineffectiveness, especially in the monitoring and supervision process. Budget transparency is in line with the value of Open Government, in which information disclosure will be the basis for realising an open and participatory government. In other words, it supports the value of transparency and participation. Why is this commitment relevant to Indonesian Medium-Term National Development Plan (RPJMN) and SDGs? This program is related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) target No. 16: "Strengthening an Inclusive and Peaceful Society for Sustainable Development, Providing Access to Justice for All, and Building Effective, Accountable, and Inclusive Institutions at All Levels", especially on targets 16.6: Develop effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels and Targets 16.10 Ensure public access to information and protect fundamental freedoms, following national regulations and international agreements. In the 2020-2024 RPJMN, the culture of transparency and accountability in governance is one of the fulcrums of one of the national agendas, namely the Mental Revolution and Cultural Development. In addition, transparency, and accountability for the use of state expenditures are also one of the Rules for Implementing Development, which is realized through the development of integrated systems and data in planning, budgeting, and evaluation documents through the same and up to date database.
