Indonesia Creates More Opportunities for Digital Talent in Civil Service

The Indonesian government will add more data scientists and digital talent in the open recruitment for 2023 civil servant candidates. The policy has been created following PANRB Ministerial Regulation No. 45/2022 concerning the Position of Executing Civil Servants in Government Agencies, including digital talent and priority executor positions.

“The digital world is changing quickly; the government must adapt rapidly to avoid being eroded by the times. “Abdullah Azwar Anas, Minister for Administrative Reform and Bureaucratic Reform (PANRB) explained in South Jakarta.

The new guidelines and increased digital transformation may reduce some jobs and the government is currently determining which functions may be affected by digital developments. The hiring priority in 2023 is to meet the needs of specific professionals such as judges, prosecutors, lecturers, and other technical personnel.  Candidates for Civil Servants (CPNS) and Candidates for Government Employees with Employment Agreements (PPPK) are permitted in the recruitment.

Meanwhile, PPPK will supply teachers, nurses, and other technical personnel. Minister Anas directed government agencies to begin collecting data and proposing priority needs for ASN in 2023 to be filled in their respective agencies as soon as possible.

The Minister of Finance’s opinion and the technical considerations of the Head of State Employment Agency into account (BKN) will determine the proposed needs of ministries, institutions, regional governments, and formations.

Several variables were considered in the 2023 recruitment, including indicators of the number of retired civil servants and the fulfilment of human resources to support the national strategic programme, as well as geographical location and budget capabilities.

Indonesia recently launched the Satu Data Indonesia (One Data Indonesia) portal to produce appropriate policies based on valid and accurate data. SDI is a government data management policy that aims to create high-quality data that is easily accessible and shareable among central and regional government agencies. As a result, data scientist skills are required to process and analyse all data for government agencies to gain insight.

According to Anas, the SDI portal’s launch supports President Joko Widodo’s directive on bureaucratic reform, which calls for an agile and fast bureaucracy. One of the initiatives is to digitise the government. The launch of SDI as a source of data from government agencies is also consistent with the declaration of four thematic bureaucratic reform focuses, one of which is government administration digitisation.

Suharso Monoarfa, Minister of PPN/Head of Bappenas, stated that the SDI portal answered the need for all data to be accessible in one location. The SDI Portal can serve as a government data marketplace, balancing data supply and demand.

The SDI portal is linked to the data portals of all government agencies. Therefore, the SDI portal will receive various types of statistical, spatial, and financial data from all levels of government. Suharso invites central and regional government agencies to raise mutual awareness of the importance of data in one development policy and to cultivate data into shared wealth and interests to produce the right policies.

Indonesia is implementing an Electronic-Based Government System (SPBE) to improve efficiency and prevent corruption. Digitising government administration is one way to create an impactful bureaucracy. The coordinating minister, Luhut, reiterated that the government could take steps to avoid corruption by utilising an e-catalogue to record government procurement transaction activities digitally.

Digitalisation is essential for moving the state civil apparatus (ASN) away from routine and toward a culture of innovation to improve people’s satisfaction. But, according to Anas, digitalisation must have actual outcomes or impacts on poverty reduction rates and investment growth to be implemented.
