INDUSTRY.co.id - Minister of Home Affairs Tito Karnavian urged regional governments to strengthen internal supervision through improvement of quality and quantity of the Government Internal Supervisory Apparatus (APIP).

“It is important to strengthen the APIP. In term of the quality, it can be done through technical trainings,” Tito said at the opening of the National Coordination Meeting of the Regional Government Supervision and the Launching of Monitoring Centre for Prevention (MCP), on Tuesday (31/8).

Tito also said that supervisory function held important role to minimize moral hazard and improve some areas. In addition to trainings, efforts to strengthen internal supervision can also be done by hiring professional expertise through recruitment process and providing excellent capacity building.

Thus, it will strengthen career development of regional government officials and improve their professionalism. Regional governments, he added, can also allocate sufficient amount of budget for supervisory function from the Regional Budget (APBD) as a discretion of regional heads.

On the other hand, the Government has been also making efforts to strengthen the internal supervision through improvement of multilevel supervisory system at provinces and regencies/municipalities, and digital public complaints systems such as regional governments’ information system (SIPD), the national public complaints digital platform (SP4N LAPOR), and Application of Supervisory Information System of the Inspectorate General (SIWASIAT). The Government also established Monitoring Centre for Prevention (MCP) initiated by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and supported by Ministry of Home Affairs and the Development Finance Comptroller (BPKP).

He went on to say that the strengthening of internal supervision will also minimize findings from external side.

“Once again, do strengthen the APIP. If the inspectorate is strong, internal supervision can be done well and fast so it will minimize intervention from the external,” he said.
