Progress of Public Procurement in Indonesia
“Inclusion is a reiterative process of nurturing the sustainability of intermediaries and their efforts to create value out of data.”
Sadly, the Open Data program, for example, the Open Contracting case in Bandung is not necessarily the case for a lot of local governments in Indonesia. Most of the potential users of contracting data do not have the resources, even the capacity to benefit from it. This project required significant time from the implementers to build capacity and put in the incubation resources for actual use cases to emerge. While support is needed for data publication, more assistance is needed in ensuring that published data are understood and used to strengthen transparency and accountability in public procurement.
