Welcome to the Quarterly Edition of the Audit Forum.
The Audit Board of the Republic of Indonesia (BPK) has recently faced new challenges, since October 2009. The challenges include the change of BPK leadership, the management of BPK human resources, and roles of BPK in fighting against fraud and money laundering and other international activities.
Regarding the change of BPK leadership, due to the end of the official tenure, seven of nine members of BPK were replaced by new members appointed by Indonesian Parliament on October 19, 2009. Based on the BPK Law (Number 15/2006), the new chairman and vice chairman is determined by and among all BPK members (9 persons).
The second challenge of BPK is the human resource management. BPK has recruited new staff since 2004. The number of human resources doubled from approximately two
thousands five hundred in 2004 to more than five thousands in 2009. The new staff needs trainings and job experiences, and they are placed in all BPK offices, which are the BPK headquarter in Jakarta and the regional offices at 33 provinces in Indonesia. Due to huge number of staff, BPK needs an integrated human resource management.
The third challenge of BPK is the role of BPK in fighting against fraud and money laundering and other international activities. Fraud and corruption is still BPK concerns. For example, the recent BPK audit investigative report on a private bank scandal has attracted public attention. Therefore, this addition provided articles concerning fraud and other BPK roles in fighting against money laundering and other international activities regarding environmental auditing and Tsunami related audit.
Finally, we would like to express our greatest gratitude to the contributors of the Audit Forum. We are looking forward to receiving supports and contributions from readers.
