KOMPAK's Program Governance regulates the need for joint supervision by Indonesian Government (represented by members of the Technical Committee), the Australian Government (represented by Embassy officials / staff), and KOMPAK Program Management on a regular basis — at least twice a year — in implementing regional programs.
This document is a report on supervision missions to North Lombok District (NTB Province) and Pangkajene and Kepulauan District (South Sulawesi Province) on 5–7 June 2017. In general, this supervision mission aims to determine the progress of program implementation, including progress achieved, identification early indications of good practices, and learning for improvement. The main focus of this first supervision mission is the basic service theme.
The focus of support and work plans of the KOMPAK Program is felt to be very relevant to regional needs and priorities. The local government shows acceptance, ownership, and very good involvement in the implementation of program support. The supervision mission team appreciated the excellent relationship and cooperation between the local government and the KOMPAK team. In general, from the visits to these two regions the supervision mission team had the impression that the KOMPAK Program had achieved significant progress.
The results of activities show indication in line with the expected outcomes. Indication of an increase in service in service units, such as sub-district offices and health centers / hospitals in both districts began to appear. Program support initiatives to mainstream basic services in village development began to be seen with the increase in village budget allocations for basic services. Initiatives with program partner institutions and local governments are also strengthened to encourage the involvement of community groups, especially vulnerable groups, to benefit from development at the village level, such as ownership of legal identity and educational assistance for persons with disabilities.
The supervision mission team also identifies learning from the implementation of the program to be considered in taking the necessary improvement steps. Recommendations for these improvements include the need for harmonization of policy support at the central and regional levels; continuous capacity development; systematic documentation of good practices, and support for regional program replication; optimizing the role of the province; and suggestions for the implementation of the next supervision mission.
