Functional assignment in Indonesia : policy issues and recommendations (Vol. 2) : Data sheet (英语)

A decade of implementation of decentralization and regional autonomy in Indonesia has produced a mixture of positive and negative results. Indonesia has made much progress in implementing regional autonomy, but urgent problems remain to be solved (USAID, 2009; Dwiyanto et al., 2007). In an attempt to address various issues surrounding functional assignment, research and public consultations have been undertaken with the following two strategic purposes: (1) in the short-term, to gather input to revise and improve the national policy on decentralization and regional autonomy as stated in Law No. 32 Year 2004; and (2) in the long-term, to formulate a Grand Design for Regional Autonomy (GDRA). This study focuses on the assignment of governmental functions due to the topic's widespread and extensive implications on government administration in the regions. As has frequently been documented, the implementation of regional autonomy in Indonesia still leaves many problems related to functional assignment among central, provincial, and district/city governments (Ferrazzi, 2008; Ministry of Home Affairs, 2009). This paper will explain the findings of the research conducted in the three aforementioned provinces. The elaborations in this paper constitute problems and obstacles in functional assignment, implications of the lack of clarity in functional assignment toward various aspects of regional government, and recommended actions to rectify and reform functional assignment across government levels. Recommendations are classified based on recommendations for the revision of Law No. 32 Year 2004 and the formulation of GDRA.
