Joint Supervision Mission Report Implementation of KOMPAK Program In The Regions
The governance of the KOMPAK Program requires a joint supervision mission to monitor program implementation, by the Government of Indonesia (represented by members of the Technical Committee), the Australian Government (represented by officials/staff of the Embassy), and the KOMPAK Management Team, to be conducted on a regular basis – at least twice per year. This report summaries the supervision mission conducted in the District of Lombok Utara (NTB Province) and the District of Pangkajene and Kepulauan (South Sulawesi Province) during the period 5 to 7 June 2017. This supervision mission assessed, progress achieved toward outcomes, indications of good practices, and lessons learned for program implementation. The main focus of this first supervision mission was on basic services. The KOMPAK Program has an ultimate goal of enabling poor and vulnerable communities to benefit from improved delivery of basic services and the designed to economic opportunities. The strategic support of the KOMPAK Program is designed to systems related to the governance of basic services, including encouraging multi-stakeholder and multi-level collaboration to expand access and improve the quality of basic services. KOMPAK support and work plan is respond to the needs and priorities of the regions. Local governments have shown positive response, strong buy in and involvement in the implementation of program support. The Supervision Mission Team appreciates the excellent relationship and cooperation between local government and the KOMPAK team. From the visits to these two regions, the Supervision Mission Team concluded that the KOMPAK Program has made significant progress. The results of the activities are aligned with the End-of-Facility Outcomes (EOFOs). Indications of service improvements in service units, such as sub-district offices and community health centers, in both districts are beginning to be seen.
The program support initiatives for mainstreaming basic services in rural development are becoming visible, with the increasing allocation of village budget for basic services. The joint initiatives of program partner institutions and local governments encourage the involvement of community groups, particularly vulnerable groups, to benefit from villagelevel development, such as legal identity ownership and education assistance for people with disabilities. Some of the pilot activity initiatives have also been replicated by local governments using their own local budget (APBD) – for example, the initiative to accelerate legal identity ownership outcomes in two districts, and the development of a village information system (SID) in Lombok Utara. There are plans to develop interconnectivity between SID and district level information system. The Supervision Mission Team highlighted lessons learned to be considered when designing program improvement strategies. Recommendations included: the need for harmonisation of policy support at the central and regional levels; continuous capacity building; systematic documentation of good practices, replication support by regions; optimising provincial roles; and suggestions for improving the next supervision mission. In addition, the Supervision Mission Team also recommended that the KOMPAK Program consider new priority proposals submitted by the regions. These included support for: improving governance in the education sector; accreditation of community health centers (puskesmas), management of grievances and complaints related to services; analysis of sub-district budgets related to the implementation of delegation of authority; operationalisation of the 'Self-Sufficient Village' ('Desa Mandiri') concept (Pangkajene and Kepulauan District); and the development of innovative basic service models in accordance with the archipelagic context, which has its own challenging characteristics.
