Implementation Of e-Government in Indonesia, What Is Necessary?

Corruption Perception Index (CPI) year 2015 placed Indonesia on 88th out of 168 countries measured scoring 36. The score improved by 2 points that improves 19 positions compared to the previous year. Indonesia is far behind its ASEAN partners like Singapore (CPI Score 86) and Malaysia (CPI Score 50). This is a sign that Indonesia is still fighting against corruption. The chance for corruption is high when practices of transparency, accountability, and participation don’t guide the governance process.

E-budgeting and e-planning are the two earliest applications of the e-government that were introduced upon the enactment of Presidential Instruction No. 3/2003 regarding the National Policy and Strategy of e-government implementation and the e-government Blue Print by the Minister of Information and Communication that was launched in 2004. After more than a decade, the government stated that in 2018, e-budgeting and e-planning should be applied nationwide. Nevertheless, lack of evidence on the real use of the existing local governments’ e-budgeting and e-planning by the intended users and operators, may hamper possible improvements for the system. Why does that problem matter? First, if the e-government facility is not used optimally, there is a possibility for the main users, i.e. the government officials, to bounce back and use the offline procedure hence wasting resources that have been poured to build and improve the e-government from a decade back. Second, if there are no lessons learned from the use of e-government facility by the intended users, the future implementation of e-government might lose opportunity to avoid the same mistakes that have been done in the previous systems. Thirdly, There are many and varied disincentives for village authorities and community actors to use the e-planning and e-budgeting. Through this research findings, we hope National government OGP actors are presented with compelling evidence and deliberate about it. So that, the final outcome of this project is to refine, improve and make more realistic future policy content and present policy delivery on e-government.
