The State Minister of the Administrative Reforms Office has launched a reward and punishment system pilot project to dig out corruption in the public service.

Minister for Administrative Reforms Taufik Effendi said the system had been developed in response to the 2007 Integrity Survey conducted by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), which discovered 26 out of 65 state institutions provided poor services to the public.

Taufik said his office was conducting the pilot project in the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK), the Ministry of Finance and the Supreme Court.

Under the system, his office would review the performance of officials at the three institutions and set a benchmark towards increasing their salaries.

"We will increase the salaries of officials who fare well and punish those who perform poorly," he said recently.

Last year the government raised the salaries of 512 of a total of 1,540 employees of the Finance Ministry in 18 offices across the country. The government also punished around 500 state employees, including those who worked at the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Finance, in the same period.

Taufik said the carrot and stick method would be implemented in other institutions if it succeeded in improving state employees' performances.

"I hope the system will prevent officials from committing corrupt acts, including asking for illegal fees from the public," he said.

He said he expected the Public Service Bill, which is now being discussed at the House of Representatives, to come into effect by June at the latest.

"The law is important to regulate the sanctions for officials who perform poorly or seek bribes," he said.

The government also plans to release several laws concerning administration, state officials' performance and the civil service by next year, Taufik said.

Responding to the pilot project, the KPK's Deputy Chairman Overseeing Prevention Moch. Jasin said the anti-graft body would closely monitor officials' performances.

"We will focus on state institutions because most corrupt practices occur in the institutions," Jasin said.

The anti-corruption body will take firmer action if officials fail to improve their performance through persuasion alone, he said.

"It will be a long process, but I am optimistic we can prevent corrupt practices in the future," he said.(ewd)

Wife told me today that supposedly the Head Dick of the Jakarta Police dept. is coming up with a new solution to the corruption with those boys in brown keeping safety at it's hightest and crime at it's lowest on the streets of the Big Durian.........

Supposedly, the plan is that for every citizen trying to bribe a honest hard working traffic cop, that the traffic cop just arrests the lowdown dirty dog who is trying to bribe the honest policeman. He brings them in and he gets a 10 million IDR reward for taking such a dasterdly and dangerous criminal off the streets thus making the streets safer for you and I.

Can you imagine the shit to come from this if true? Oh and she said if found guilty the criminal will be sentenced up to 1 year in the dungeon, where they belong.

Not many rewards will be given then as the perps will offer an extra five thousand over the 10 mill.
