Cabinet Secretariat Receives Corruption-Free-Zones Award
Cabinet Secretariat on Monday (21/12) has received an award in the form of a Corruption-Free-Zones (WBK) Merit Charter from Ministry of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform (PAN-RB).
The handover of the award is part of the Commemoration of 2020 International Anticorruption Day as well as the final part of evaluation processes for the Development of Integrity Zones towards Corruption-Free-Zones (WBK) and the Serving and Clean Bureaucracy Zones (WBBM) which have been implemented by Ministry of PAN-RB since August this year.
According to Deputy Cabinet Secretary for Cabinet Work Support Thanon Aria Dewangga, excellent human resource with good integrity in Cabinet Secretariat is a key determining factor for the achievement of the WBK Merit Charter.
“This is proof that State Civil Apparatus (ASN) in Cabinet Secretariat has a commitment to prioritizing integrity,” he said.
Thanon went on to say that the award serves as a challenge for Cabinet Secretariat to maintain and prepare for the next stage, namely the Serving and Clean Bureaucracy Zones or the WBBM.
In addition, he added, this is also a challenge for the Cabinet Work Support working unit, in particular, to always provide fast, precise, and qualified public services as well as prioritize updated-service innovations that are flexible to changes.
“In the ongoing pandemic, we must remain productive and continue to comply with health protocols,” Thanon said.
On that occasion, the Deputy also expressed his gratitude for the collaborative work carried out by the Cabinet Work Support working unit and all elements of Cabinet Secretariat so that the WBK award can be achieved.
For the record, the WBK is a predicate given to a working unit that has successfully implemented bureaucratic reforms in six areas of changes to nip corruption, collusion and nepotism in the bud.
Those six areas of changes include change management, structuring governance, structuring human resource management systems, improving supervision, and strengthening performance accountability.
The appreciation and the awards of the 2020 WBK and WBBM were conferred to 763 working units in several ministries/institutions, provincial governments, and regency/city administrations. The awarding ceremony was held face-to-face (offline) and virtually (online). (DND/UN) (RIF/MUR)
