President Joko Jokowi Widodo, accompanied by Vice President Jusuf Kalla, received the Audit Summary (LHP) on the 2017 Central Government Financial Report (LKPP) from the Indonesian Audit Board (BPK) at the State Palace, Jakarta, Monday (4/6) morning.
Chairman of BPK Moermahadi Soerja Djanegara said that the BPK granted an Unqualified Opinion (WTP) on the 2017 LKPP based on the results of the assessment of 87 Financial Reports of the Ministries/Institutions (LKKL) and one Financial Report of the State Treasury (LKBUN).
“The BPK grants WTP rating to 80 LKKL/LKBUN (or 90%), Qualified Opinions (WDP) to six LKKL, and Disclaimer opinion(TMP) to two Financial Reports of the Ministry(LKK),” Moermahadi said.
According to the Chairman of BPK, WDP is given to: 1. The Ministry of Defense; 2. The Ministry of Youth and Sports; 3. The National Committee of Human Rights (Komnas HAM); 4. The Nuclear Energy Supervisory Agency (Bapeten); 5. LPP TVRI (state-owned tv station); and 6. LPP RRI (state-owned radio station).
