Consultant to Develop Corruption Risk Index on Government Procurement – USAID Integritas Project

I. Position Information
Title : Consultant to Develop Corruption Risk Index on Government Procurement - USAID Integritas Project
Location: Jakarta

II. Project Background
The goal of INTEGRITAS is to support the Government of Indonesia (GOI) in its corruption prevention efforts through enhancing civic engagement and strengthening a culture of integrity for both the public and private sectors. INTEGRITAS seeks to enhance Indonesian civil society capacity and role to more effectively partner with and support key GOI oversight institutions, while simultaneously ensuring sufficient preventative and oversight mechanisms are in place in the public and private sector.
The activity will cooperate and work with government and non-government key actors to achieve this goal through two interrelated intermediate results (IRs):
• IR 1: Implementation of transparent policies and practices that reduce conflicts of interest (COIs) increased.

The government procurement sector is still a thriving field for corrupt practices in Indonesia. Based on KPK data as of January 10, 2024, corruption in the procurement of goods/services is still the second largest corruption case after gratification/bribery.
