January 2019 – December 2020
Lead implementing agency/actor
1. National Public Procurement Agency (NPPA)
2. Central Information Commission
Public procurement process in Indonesia takes 30% of the total state budget. Such goods and services provided by the government through the procurement process have been very convenient in establishing infrastructures and facilities to support people, such as schools, hospitals, etc. However, according to NPPA’s record, the country is still in a deficit at $15 billion per year or almost 200 trillion rupiahs due to a poor procurement process.
One of the solutions to prevent and overcome problems encountered within the procurement process is to enhance transparency and accountability of the procurement documents.
Even though currently the government is publishing the procurement information offline and online, but, based on Scoping Study Open Contracting in
Indonesia (2016), six stages of procurement documents starting from planning to final stage are not yet to be published. All this time, information available on the website is only limited to the information about the selection process, the rest of the process is not yet available. Therefore, the open contracting initiative is expected to assist public procurement transparency followed with standardized data and content.
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
The government recently issued a Presidential
Regulation Number 16/2018 on Public Procurement which focuses on accelerating the easiness of the procurement process. The regulation mandate procurement system integration which consists of planning program process, budgeting, up to monitoring and evaluation. The system is called the Electronic
Procurement System (EPS).
However, based on the regulation, there was no procurement document available to be published.
Therefore, Open Government National Action Plan
2019-2020 will set a target for NPPA and KIP to release policy (regulation and decree) related to document list which can be accessed by the public.
Furthermore, to strengthen the monitoring system mandated by the regulation, NPPA should add monitoring component to the procurement of goods and services by involving civil society How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
This commitment is relevant to the OGP values, such as information disclosure, public participation, transparency, and technology innovation. By using the integrated SPSE, procurement process of government goods and services will be more accountable. This commitment also encourages transparency and public participation.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? ● Open contracting becomes one of the indicators to determine the achievement of SDGs goals, particularly related to Agenda 10. ● Open contracting commitment is an initiative that initially brought by Bojonegoro Regency and local civil society organizations through the OGP
Subnational Pilot Program. Moreover, open contracting has been supported by the Steering
Committee of OGP through OGP Regional Summit
2017 and OGP Global Summit 2016. ● Some of the civil society organizations, e.g.
Bojonegoro Institute (BI), Indonesia Corruption
Watch (ICW), Transparency International
Indonesia (TII) have been supporting this commitment by coordinating with local government since last year. Center of Information and Regional
Studies (PATTIRO) from Semarang and The
Alliance of Independent Journalists (AJI) will be supporting this commitment as well.
