Background:
Indonesia is making efforts to combat corruption and build transparent and effective government institutions by undertaking various measures, one of which is strengthening internal control systems. Internal control lies at the core of integrity management. Internal controls require a high degree of independence and professionalism to function effectively. A lack of independence continues to make internal integrity management difficult. The Financial and Development Supervisory Agency (BPKP) is the government internal auditor and is responsible for capacity building of Inspectorate Generals (IGs) throughout the Indonesian archipelago. This includes the development of a system to measure the maturity of IGs that is widely used as a benchmark in the accountability community and for training on internal audit topics.

To improve the quality of internal control bodies of the Government of Indonesia (GoI), USAID CEGAH has provided extensive capacity-building support to several ministries’ and agencies’ internal accountability bodies over the last few years. Considering that preventing corruption lies at the forefront of the new government’s priorities, CEGAH is proactively evaluating the overall capacity building needs for GoI internal control bodies. For this purpose, USAID CEGAH will hire an Indonesian expert to identify the current level of internal control expertise and capacity gaps, and provide recommendations to the IG community to build strong, robust internal control systems. The expert will also be expected to work in cooperation with a group of consultants, including an international consultant, who are assisting with internal accountability reform.

Objective:
To identify the capacity building needs of internal accountability community over the next five years, particularly in the field of health and education services, and infrastructure projects.

Task and Responsibilities:
In order to achieve the objectives, the expert, who will work in cooperation with the international expert and under the overall supervision of USAID CEGAH, shall:

  2. Review capacity building efforts that are currently in place and compare it with the stated needs of the IG community (5 days);
  3. Create a gap analysis study based on the comparison above, and (10 days);
