This review analyses open government principles and practices in Indonesia, highlighting opportunities for - as well as barriers to - achieving the country’s public governance reforms. It covers a wide range of topics, including the co-ordination of open government reforms by the centre of government, citizen engagement mechanisms, anti-corruption and integrity, digital government and open government data, budget transparency, public sector innovation, and the link between open government reforms and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It provides concrete recommendations on how to further strengthen and embed openness in policy making at all levels of government, drawing on the best experiences of OECD countries.



Steering and co-ordination of open government policies and practices in Indonesia

This chapter looks at the capacity of the centre of government to design, steer and support the implementation of open government policies. It explores current policies and practices and provides guidance to frame the response to pending challenges. Indonesia has been a frontrunner in fostering the international agenda on open government. At the national level, open government is incorporated in the Presidential Priorities and some key policy documents, which helps to promote the issue’s visibility and provides greater leverage for action. The country also has proven experience in developing and implementing OGP Action Plans, having now reached the fourth generation of its OGP Action Plan. In addition, in the context of the country’s ongoing process of decentralisation, open government objectives are increasingly linked to the idea of better service delivery situated at the local level.
