Project Summary:
USAID CEGAH is a 5-year anti-corruption program dedicated towards strengthening Indonesia’s community of accountability. The program includes components on rule of law strengthening, accountability and anti-corruption, public service integrity, access to information and civil society strengthening. Currently in its fourth year, the project is implemented by MSI.

Background:
The Government of Indonesia (GoI) has mandated the Ministry of Bureaucratic and Administrative Reform (KemenPAN-RB) through the Regulation no. 25/2009 to develop the Public Service Information System (Sistem Informasi Pelayanan Publik, or SIPP). SIPP serves as an electronic platform that aims to provide comprehensive and timely information on public services. The website (sipp.menpan.go.id) consists of information regarding the procedure of government services, standard of services (including the cost and timeline), and many others. SIPP is also integrated with other services, including SP4N-LAPOR! the public complaint management application.

In 2017, USAID CEGAH supported KemenPAN-RB to develop and promote SIPP. Recent development shows that there is data input from 520 government institutions and there are 57,661service types registered into SIPP.

In 2019, USAID CEGAH supported KemenPAN-RB to conduct a review on SIPP, including the user satisfaction, performance, security, and areas for improvement of the platform. From the results of the recent review by the CEGAH consultant, as a "one-stop" data/information service provider, SIPP needs some improvements and enhancements for aspects such as ease of access and use of the application, functional compatibility, feature completeness, and data security.

There are several important features that need to be enhanced to improve the ease of access and use of the application, such as: improvement of search features, improvement of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and digital socialization, development of the user guides for visitors on the homepage, bug fixing, and increasing the content on the homepage. In addition, SIPP requires a more detailed data in the Command Center that can also be accessed by the public and that allows users to print and export data. SIPP also needs functions for data analysis; reporting the national SIPP data condition; and features that allow regions to perform functions in SIPP independently by having their own addresses in the SIPP domain. Regarding interoperability and data security, SIPP must make integration facilities through Application Programming Interface (API) ensuring that all local governments are integrated with SIPP while also creating data backup.
