A pressing need exists for a public service that performs with high integrity and builds a bond of trust with all Indonesian citizens. As lesson learned from the New Order, low integrity lead to high level of collusion, corruption and nepotism (KKN) in the government had resulted a multidimensional problem in national development. Kemitraan believes that it is crucial to put integrity as a priority element in the effort to promote good and sustainable governance. Since 2009 Kemitraan working together with TIRI- Making Integrity Work International to support several programs related to integrity, among others, enhancing human resources capacity through I-PIEN (Public Integrity Education Network Indonesia), building Public Sector competence in ethics through Integrity @ Work Programme, and raising standards of reporting in non-profits through GrantCheck Program.


Main Achievements/Milestones

By the end of December 2012 Tiri had already expanded the number of university partners in the Indonesia IEN network to 109 member institutions. The progress made by I-PIEN is the completion of six integrity teaching modules for six academic subjects to complement the Anti-Corruption curriculum initiated by the Ministry of Education’s Council for Higher Education (Dikti). The six teaching modules (Islam and Integrity, Law, Public Administration, Communication, Public Health and Business Ethics) were presented at the ASEAN conference and seminar in April 2013.
