Description The State Accountability Revitalization (STAR) project aims to support the government's key reform priorities aimed at improving the government's accountability through stronger capacity of the internal auditors and public finance officers at the central and regional levels. The project focuses on providing incentives to auditors and finance officers to improve their capacity, improving the trainers' capacity, implement the e-learning system, and implement the State Accountability Management Information System (SIMDA). These will promote good governance in public financial management and improve public service delivery for the benefit of Indonesian citizens.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy STAR is in line with the government's plan to promote good governance at national and local levels. The government's National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2010-2014 identifies good governance as one of the priorities. This priority intersects with ADB's country partnership strategy (CPS) for Indonesia for 2012-2014. The CPS identifies improved governance as essential for more inclusive growth especially in the context of public financial management as a whole and decentralization specifically. STAR is in line with the ADB's existing support for local government's system and capacity building in public financial management under ADB's Second Local Government Finance and Governance Reform (LGFGR) Program cluster. STAR targets capacity development for decentralized public management to improve governance, including strengthening; (i) financial management systems of local governments; and (ii) national and local audit systems, and capacity for planning, policy making and financial management. This target supports BPKP's 2010-2014 strategic plans to strengthen PFM officers' capacity to become professional and competent. They aim to have 2,500 internal auditors at the central and regional government levels.
Impact Strengthened accountability of public institutions able to deliver high quality public services.
