Aspirasijabar Kota.Bandung- Located at Gedung Sate, the Governor of West Java, Mohammad Ridwan Kamil, handed over the Award of Public Information Openness to Public Bodies with an informative rating.
Ijang Faisal as Chairman of the West Java Information Commission, said this award was not an arena for contestation between public agencies, but we must interpret it as a measure of implementation of public information disclosure in West Java. It can be seen clearly that this year, the efforts of public agencies to improve themselves deserve high appreciation.
This year, the Information Commission (KI) of West Java Province conducted monitoring and evaluation by optimizing online media, both during the socialization of the implementation of monev until the final stage of awarding the ranking of public bodies.
Through this 2020 Monev, West Java KI hopes to get the following picture:
First, the application of the KIP Law on Public Bodies in West Java.
Second, to encourage Public Bodies to be more transparent and accountable regarding the implementation of handling Covid-19.
Third, fulfill the right to public information in the implementation of the Covid-19 response.
Fourth, encourage public participation in preventing the spread of Covid-19.
Until the deadline for returning the Monev questionnaire dated 25 September 2020 at 24.00 via e-mail KIP Jabar, it was recorded that from 118 Public Bodies in West Java, 73 returned SAQ on time and 4 public agencies returned SAQ late.
The participation of public agencies returned the SAQ to around 65%.
