  • “UNDP is the UN’s global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in about 170 countries and territories, including Indonesia, working to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. UNDP supports implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In Indonesia, UNDP works with the Government to integrate SDGs into national plan and policies.”


    On 20 September 2011, Indonesia, as one of the 8 founding governments formally launched the Open Government Partnership (OGP), endorsed the Open Government Declaration, and announced its national action plan. Following the launch of OGP, President Yudhoyono established an online G2C system (LAPOR) that supports the national public service compliant management system (SP4N) under the coordination of the President’s Delivery Unit for Development Monitoring and Oversight (UKP4) in 2012.

    LAPOR is an online citizen complaints management system, and was designed to increase public participation in the supervision of programs and government performance as well as the provision of public services. LAPOR is an integrated online system that is easily accessible through various online platforms including 1) text messaging 1708 (based on Indonesia’s Independence day on 17 August), 2) mobile application (LAPOR!) on Android and Blackberry – IOS still under development, (3) the internet (, 4) Facebook (, 4) Twitter (@LAPOR1708 or #LAPOR), 5) YouTube (@LAPOR1708), and 6) Instagram (@LAPOR1708).

    Through these online platforms, citizens can submit their petitions and complaints to uncover issues internally or in-service provision in highlighting existing challenges. KemenPAN-RB is the responsible agency for the management of daily operations and administration of LAPOR. Up until March 2017, LAPOR had attracted more than 560,000 users and continues to receive, on average, 800 daily reports through the platform. To this end, LAPOR has become the forerunner of national integrated complaints management systems.

    Currently, under President Joko Widodo (Jokowi), LAPOR is still a cornerstone for complaints handling with KemenPAN, Kantor Staf Presiden (KSP), and Ombusdman Republik Indonesia (ORI) as the national partners of the system. In 2016, LAPOR was defined as the National Public Service Complaints Management System (SP4N: Sistem Pengelolaan Pengaduan Pelayanan Publik Nasional) based on the Regulation of Minister of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform No.3 of 2015 which led to the Presidential Regulation No.76/2013 on the management of public complaints within public services. Together, KemenPAN-RB, ORI, and KSP manage LAPOR after the signing of Joint Memorandum of Understanding in March 2016 on the utilization of LAPOR as SP4N.

    The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Indonesia is initiating a new programme with the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to support the Government of Indonesia in strengthening the capacity of government to handle civil petitions that can improve public service provision over time. In doing so, UNDP and KOICA will establish a tripartite collaboration with the Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reforms (KemenPAN-RB) to develop a comprehensive and integrated national strategy on the public service complaint management system through development of master plan and roadmap for comprehensive national complaints handling system (SP4N LAPOR!).  This joint collaboration, the SP4N-LAPOR! project, also intends to capacitate respective agencies responsible for the management and operation of LAPOR and furthermore, the joint collaboration also intents to increase public awareness in utilizing LAPOR! as effective way in public participation in public service.

Likewise, the Technical Specialist will also facilitate and promote coordination and collaboration with other actors in both of national and international level. S/he will work in consultation with KemenPAN-RB as main strategic partner, Ombudsman and KSP and other national and international partners in term of substance of the result of the project, and also in coordination with the Head of Unit of Democratic Governance and Poverty Reduction to successfully implement and achieve all of the project results.
