Bureaucratic reform is a theme that is relevant to current global change. The government is expected to innovate in optimizing the use of technology along with the rapid development of the digital era. This is what underlies the Faculty of Administrative Sciences Universitas Indonesia (FIA UI) in collaboration with the Indonesian Institute for Public Governance (IIPG) and the FIA UI Alumni Association (ILUNI) in holding a workshop seminar themed “Public Sector Governance in Digital Era: Enhancing Policy and Innovation.”

In this workshop, the former Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia, Prof. Dr. Boediono, M.Ec. stated that, in fact, the government is already aware of the change in the digital era because transformation in the public sector is a necessity. “It’s just that at this time e-government is being implemented separately, not yet integrated,” said Boediono when he became Keynote Speaker on Tuesday (4/9) at the Grand Sahid Jaya Hotel Jakarta.

This was also the concern of the Dean of the FIA UI, Prof. Dr. Eko Prasojo in his presentation related to The New Public Governance. “As a faculty that focuses on the realm of organizational governance, we strive to provide input and suggestions in the process of transforming digital governance,” he said when opening the presentation.

According to the Former Deputy Minister of Administrative Reform, and Bureaucratic Reform (Menpan RB) there are 3 keys to governance that can compete in the digital era today. First, structural related governance so that it does not work alone but collaborates. Second, cultural transformation related to the mindset of serving, trusting and integrating. Third, digital transformation related to technological progress that is used to improve public services.

As an information, this event was attended by M. Jusuf Ateh (Deputy Minister of PANRB), Prof. Djisman Simanjuntak (Chancellor of Prasetia Mulia), Prof. Djohermansjah Djohan (Former Director General of Regional Autonomy of the Ministry of Home Affairs and IPDN lecturer). The workshop was also attended by 100 participants from local government leaders, academics, and invitees who were concerned about improving clean governance. This event is a series towards the evening of the 2018 National Guide to Award (APN) that will be held by the IIPG on October 26, 2018. (MI)
