THE INTEGRATION OF PROPOSALS FOR THE SPECIAL ALLOCATION FUND THROUGH AN E-PLANNING APPLICATION
The National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) has developed a development planning application that is based on an electronic planning application (e-planning) to facilitate the integration of Special Allocation Fund (DAK) proposals by local governments.
"This application can be accessed by all relevant stakeholders, whether across ministries or agencies, or across local governments. Bappenas and the Directorate General of Fiscal Balance (DJPK) have agreed to start using the DAK application in 2018," said Arifin Rudiyanto, the Deputy for Regional Development at Bappenas in the opening of the socialization and training of the DAK e-planning application.
The e-planning application serves as a source of information for the submission and reporting of DAK. In addition, for the central government, the application also facilitates the exchange of information between ministries/agencies in relation to the collection, assessment, monitoring and evaluation of DAK proposals. The application integrates DAK proposals with national development planning, and can be transparent. "This application makes the process more efficient, transparent and accountable to all parties," added Arifin Rudiyanto.
Through the e-planning application, proposals that are integrated to the national development planning are expected to assist DAK to achieve its main objectives, namely fiscal transfer allocations that support basic services that favor the poor and vulnerable.
KOMPAK supports the implementation of DAK e-planning
To support the use of the DAK e-planning application, Bappenas invited representatives of all local governments in Indonesia to participate in the DAK e-Planning Socialization and Training on 10 - 21 April, 2017. Participants were divided into 6 regional groups consisting of 34 provincial governments and 508 district/city governments.
During the workshop, representatives of local governments were given presentations and technical explanations regarding the DAK e-planning application by ministries and institutions. Subjects that were discussed included related policy concepts, governance and a simulation of DAK e-planning program. After the presentations, participants were invited to test the application. This was facilitated by eight instructors from Bappenas, DJPK and KOMPAK.
In addition to socialization and training, the workshop was also intended to collect technical feedback and identify potential problems during its use. It is expected that these activities will also gather feedback from local governments to improve DAK e-Planning, including drafts of the DAK governance policies based on the proposals for 2018.
Prior to nationwide socialization and training activities, KOMPAK supported the development of the DAK e-planning application by conducting trials in the provinces of Aceh, South Sulawesi and West Nusa Tenggara.
