Gov’t to Start ASN Assessment for New Capital Placement This Year
The Indonesian Government has announced that it will start the assessment process for the state civil apparatus (ASN) who will be transferred to the new Capital City of Nusantara (IKN) this year.
“We are currently assessing, how and who,” Minister of National Development Planning/Head of the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) Suharso Monoarfa said at the Presidential Palace, Jakarta, Monday (07/11).
The Minister added that the ASN transfer will be carried out in phases. “I think not all at once. It is important that the IKN can function as the nation’s capital,” he said.
Meanwhile, Head of Public Relations, Legal, and Cooperation Bureau of the National Civil Service Agency (BKN) Satya Pratama said that BKN is mandated to carry out the assessment.
“The talent mapping will target ASN in a number of several government agencies in Special Capital Region of Jakarta and surrounding areas,” Satya said as quoted from BKN website on Wednesday (07/13).
Satya also stated that BKN through the ASN Competency Assessment Center is preparing two main phases for the assessment process. First, formulating and developing assessment methods or instruments that will be used to map the potential and competency of ASN in accordance with the demands in the IKN. Second, preparing a mechanism for implementing the assessment which is planned to be carried out in phases and divided into five clusters.
“On the closest target, BKN will carry out the competency mapping/assessment for ASN in Central Agencies to enter the first cluster and so on, according to the scenario of the transfer phases set by the government,” he said.
Satya also stated that 60,000 ASN will be assessed during the initial phase of the assessment from 2022 to 2023, namely 20,000 ASN in 2022 and 40,000 ASN in 2023.
He also stated that BKN will also cooperate with several relevant central government agencies such as Ministry of National Development Planning/Head of the National Development Planning Agency and Ministry of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reforms,” he said. (FID/PR of BKN/UN) (FI/HD)
