Vacancy: Consultant- USAID CEGAH

 Support the Ministry of Bureaucratic and Administrative Reform (KemenPAN-RB) to Develop a Capacity Building System for LAPOR! - Public Complaint Handling Administrators


Workdays: 65 days


RT: 18


Project Summary:

CEGAH is a five-year USAID-funded accountability and integrity program that works with a wide range of Indonesian governmental and non-governmental agencies. The duration of the project is from 2016 to 2021 and is implemented by Management Systems International (MSI).



As an effort to build transparency and accountability, the Indonesian Government created an integrated National Complaint Handling application (LAPOR!) that allows the public to submit complaints and reports regarding the quality and responsiveness of government services through website, Short Messaging Service (SMS) and mobile applications. The system is also aimed at increasing government accountability and improving government responsiveness for the implementation of public services. Since 2014, 657 government agencies have connected to LAPOR! and have processed 491,222 complaint reports. With this number, therefore, an effective management and adequate human resources are needed to be able to manage and process the complaints that are registered on LAPOR! and ensure timely and responsive action.

Article 36 of Law No. 25/2019 on Public Services has mandated that SP4N-LAPOR! should provide a complaint-handling service, and that a competent officer be assigned responsibility for the service. This mandate also has a derivative regulation in KemenPAN-RB Ministerial Decree No. 24/2014, Article 1E on Pedoman Penyelenggaraan Pengelolaan Pengaduan Pelayanan Publik (Guidelines for the Implementation of National Public Service Complaint Management), which states that the officer who handles public complaints must have a structural or functional position within the ministry. This functional position will fulfill the lack of human resources for handling SP4N-LAPOR!.

In 2020, USAID CEGAH supported KemenPAN-RB, Office of the Presidential Staff (KSP) and Ombudsman of the Republic of Indonesia (ORI) to formulate the academic paper and credit score to establish the functional position for the SP4N-LAPOR! administrator. Following this assistance by CEGAH, KemenPAN-RB has requested CEGAH support to develop and implement a capacity building design for professional complaintshandling administrators, as this is one of the important aspects for a public complaint handling administrator functional position. In this regard, CEGAH will hire a professional capacity building consultant to assist KemenPAN-RB to develop a design of the training system for the supervisory institution (Instansi Pembina) of the public complaint handling administrator functional position. The training system will consist of strategy and design of capacity building, training curriculum and training materials for improving the capacity of the SP4N-LAPOR! administrators.
