Advancing beneficial ownership and transforming procurement systems in Indonesia
From September 2020 to March 2021, Open Ownership undertook a lightning intervention in Indonesia. The project was funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, and you can read the bite-sized report here.
- Open Ownership considered key technical barriers that had previously been blocking Indonesia’s progress to using beneficial ownership data in procurement.
- Analysis of the existing technical systems in Indonesia demonstrated how the government can link beneficial ownership data with contracting data.
- It established firm technical foundations to support the use of beneficial ownership data in procurement, in particular building on existing structured data and information sharing software that is already in use by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights (MLHR).
- A comprehensive data-sharing arrangement between the MLHR and other executive agencies in Indonesia will be an important next step in working towards using data to identify conflicts of interests.
