Supporting Indonesia’s Islands of Integrity Program (SIPS)

South and South-East Asia - Indonesia

2010-2015 | Global Affairs Canada | CAD 11 M

SIPS was a five-year project (2010-2015) designed to identify, design, implement and showcase streamlined and transparent frontline service delivery practices implemented by two provincial and eight district/city governments in Sulawesi with the aim of stimulating local economic development through reduced opportunities for corruption. To do so, the project worked to identify and address the regulatory, permitting/licensing and procurement issues that deterred entrepreneurship, delayed registration processes and limited public confidence in government. The project focused primarily on strengthening the abilities of four main types of local government business and citizen service providers (One-Stop-Shops, Population and Administration Services units, and centralized procurement units) to manage and deliver their services transparently, efficiently and in line with national requirements. The project also strengthened the capacity of Indonesia’s Corruption Eradication Commission to support to deliver its corruption prevention programming at the sub-national level.
