In the paper Relationship of Policy Actors in Collaborative Governance Model for Combating Corruption in Indonesia, Mr. Abubakar mentioned the that the failure of corruption eradication efforts may be attributed to a number of factors - including the absence of inter-institutional collaboration among concerned offices. He stressed that the very law enforcement agencies mandated to deal with corruption are often involved in conflicts when handling corruption cases. Thus, the study aimed to analyze the patterns of relations in corruption prosecution in Indonesia and the impact of the said relations. Furthermore, the study also aimed to look into collaborative governance as a model for corruption prosecution. The research was conducted by means of a qualitative approach, with data collection methods in the form of in-depth interviews, focus group discussions, and review of existing statistics. Results show that the relationship among corruption prosecution agencies in Indonesia is particularly affected by factors such as stakeholder integrity, leadership style, and political conditions.
Meanwhile, in The Impact of Performance Management on Government Effectiveness and Efficiency: Indonesian Case, Mr. Ateh shared that their study focused on the impact of performance management implementation on the effectiveness and efficiency of the government budget use, especially in the local government. Currently, there is a growing demand for a results-oriented government not only in developed countries, but in developing countries as well. In Indonesia, there exists a Government Institution’s Performance Accountability System, also known as SAKIP, which was established to create professional, results-oriented and accountable government institutions through the application of performance management principles, performance-based budgets, and performance measures. The study utilized a qualitative approach in looking into the effect of SAKIP implementation in the efficiency and effectiveness of budget utilization. In conclusion, Mr. Ateh shared that as a system that integrates planning, budgeting and performance management, SAKIP had a positive impact on improving the effectiveness and efficiency of budget management. In detail, SAKIP helped improve work procedures, organizational structure, performance achievement, and performance accountability capabilities.
