Job DescriptionInternal Oversight Advisor, USAID CEGAH, Indonesia
USAID CEGAH is a 5-year program dedicated towards strengthening Indonesia’s Community of Accountability. This includes components on rule of law strengthening, accountability and anti-corruption, public service integrity, access to information and civil society strengthening.
USAID CEGAH is looking for an Indonesian advisor who will support the program’s planned assessment of the Government of Indonesia’s (GoI) internal oversight bodies. The advisor will collaborate with an international advisor (expected to work for two weeks in Jakarta in early 2020) and report to the Program Manager for Administrative Reforms of the CEGAH project.
Indonesia’s internal accountability community is diverse, befitting a complex and vast nation. It is becoming increasingly clear that preventing the emergence of and fighting existing corruption will primarily be the task of internal control bodies.
USAID CEGAH has provided extensive capacity building support to several ministries’ and agencies’ internal accountability bodies over the last few years, both under CEGAH and ‘Strengthening Integrity and Accountability Program’ 1 (SIAP 1). In light of the shifting political environment that accompanied the swearing in of the new presidential and parliamentary terms, CEGAH is seeking to take a step back and determine overall policy needs.
The objective of the research is to identify the policy needs to strengthen the internal accountability community over the next five years.
Assessment activities will include both desk research and interviews with GoI representatives on the following issues:
- Policy and legislative framework: what are the existing legislative framework and government regulations for internal controls, including typology of internal control bodies in government, local agencies and state-owned enterprises, and their respective authorities?; and what is the existing future design being proposed by several agencies (Ministry of Bureaucratic and Administrative Reform (KemenPAN-RB), Baleg DPR, BAKN DPR, and universities)?; and
- Political environment: mapping the political environment, ascertain the supporters and opponents of draft legislation on SPIP (internal monitoring systems), and provide recommendations on its passage.
- Provide an analysis and recommendations on existing and future legal framework on strengthening internal controls;
- Provide recommendations on the passage of the draft legislation on SPIP;
- Prepare recommendations for the improvement of Inspectorate General (IG) community in the areas of health, education and infrastructure. There is also a possibility that the design will involve cooperation between different internal control agencies, from Development and Finance Oversight Agency (BPKP), IGs, and local inspectorate(s) for specific topics chosen in the piloted region(s).
- Presentations on:
- Existing and future legal framework on strengthening internal controls;
- Recommendations on the passage of the draft legislation on SPIP; and
- Recommendations on strengthening IG community and program design for piloted topics.
- Master’s degree on law, politics, and/or public administration;
