The Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucracy Reform unveils the Evaluation Results from the Bureaucratic Reform, Accountability, and Integrity Zones
The Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucracy Reform of the Republic of Indonesia (Kementerian PANRB), will launch an online portal showcasing the results of the evaluations of the bureaucratic reform, integrity, and accountability zone program (Available at http://evalrbkunwas.menpan.go.id/). The event will take place on 22 February at the Kementerian PANRB. The Minister of Kementerian PANRB, Prof. Dr. H. Yuddy Chrisnandi, ME, other government officials, data enthusiasts, journalists, and many more interested in learning about open data and the portal will be in attendance.
Supported by the World Wide Web Foundation’s Open Data Lab Jakarta, Kementerian PANRB is exploring ways of using open data as a tool in advancing bureaucracy reform. The evaluation results already available in the portal show the performance of provinces, cities, and national government agencies in areas related to public complaints system, reform roadmaps, performance agreements, budget monitoring, monitoring and evaluation, among others.
Open data is steadily gaining momentum in Southeast Asia, especially in Indonesia. In last year’s Open Data Barometer, Indonesia was the best performing country from the lower middle income group and the biggest climber, jumping to the 36th place in the 86-country study. This could be attributed to the surge in readiness, implementation, and open data impact in the country, with a growing number of initiatives at the national and local levels, such as those in Jakarta, Bandung, and Banda Aceh.
Commenting on the project’s launch, Michael Cañares, the Open Data Lab Jakarta’s Regional Research Manager for Asia, said:
“We believe that opening data on the progress of bureaucracy reform will enable citizens to better understand and monitor the responsibilities and conduct of governmental institutions in Indonesia. We are also convinced that this project will encourage other agencies to improve performance on key reform indicators in transparency, accountability, and public service delivery.
