Public Procurement Reform in Indonesia

The OECD report states that Indonesia scored 62 for its public procurement. With more than 25% -30% of the state budget goes to public procurement, a transparent procurement process becomes inevitable in the context of anti-corruption and good governance efforts. Despite government’s commitment remain high on the country’s agenda and is one of the main priorities of the President’s public service reform program, the non-existence of procurement regulation to replace the existing law, low number of certified practitioners in the government bureaus and mark-up tenders are the most important features being the root cause of state procurement spending leakage. Through promulgation of newly established institution to effectively manage a responsive and accountable public procurement, the institution would also function as an oversight body and enhance capacity of procurement practitioners at the regional level.

The full paper of the above abstract is to be presented to the International Public Procurement Conference. Hope I would gain something from this event.
