Project Summary:
CEGAH is a 5-year USAID-funded accountability and integrity program that works with a wide range of Indonesian governmental and non-governmental agencies. The program runs between 2016 and 2021. The project is implemented by Management Systems International (MSI).

Background:
According to the Presidential Regulation (Peraturan Presiden or Perpres) No. 76/2013 on Public Service Management System, Government of Indonesia (GoI) led by KemenPAN-RB established Sistem Pengelolaan Pengaduan Pelayanan Publik Nasional (SP4N) - Layanan Aspirasi dan Pengaduan Online Rakyat (LAPOR!) as an integrated public complaint management system. SP4N-LAPOR! is designated to become a one-stop national complaint handling management system for public services. The system aims to increase government accountability and improve government responsiveness for the implementation and delivery of public services. Another purpose of the system is to increase public participation in reporting complaints and dissatisfaction on public services, to the government at the national and local levels.

SP4N-LAPOR! has had significant improvements by upgrading from version 3.0 to 3.1. The application (app) is also available on many online platforms such as a dedicated website, via Short Messaging Service (SMS), and via social media such as twitter. The app is available for download on the Android and iOS mobile software. Due to its vast reach online, SP4N-LAPOR! currently receives an average of 500 complaints per day and has become a no-wrong door policy in public complaint handling nationwide.
