Background
Act No. 5 Year 2014 on the Civil Service is a key driver to
promote reforms on how the civil service is managed. The Law has established
the Civil Service Commission (Komisi Aparatur Sipil Negara/KASN) to ensure the
implementation of merit principles in all phases of human resource management
of the civil service, especially in the recruitment and placement of
approximately 12,000 senior executive staff (JPT) in all government
institutions, and to supervise the implementation of the codes of ethics and
conduct.
As a recently established agency, KASN is in need of support to build
its institutional capacity, particularly its communication capacity.
Communications play a crucial role for influencing governance relationship,
connecting KASN with the civil servants and related stakeholders, and
increasing citizen’s awareness and participation to oversee the civil service
code of conduct. Currently, KASN has four main platforms for their public
outreach: website, twitter, Facebook and YouTube, while they are also utilizing
their offline communication through socialization or other public outreach
events. KASN has reached 599 followers on Twitter and 1,373 likes on Facebook.
However, KASN faces some obstacles in maximizing and integrating the online
& offline communication platform.
 
In this regard, USAID CEGAH plans to engage an Indonesian
expert to assess the effectiveness of KASN’s current communication programs and
platforms (including priorities, target audience(s), messages, types of media
platforms). It includes determining whether the current communication
strategies are aligned with the agency’s goal and objectives and developing
specific recommendations to their communication practices.
