Project Officer SIGAP – Kemitraan Bagi Pembaruan Tata Pemerintahan

Post InformationPost Title             : Project
Officer for SIGAP Supervisor          : Program
Manager for Civil Society and Open Governance Organizational ContextIndonesia faces serious challenges from corrupt practices and embezzlement
of public assets, with a staggering negative impact on its political, social,
and economic development. It is estimated that state losses amount to
approximately US$ 9.72 billion  while
between 2001-2012 the total amount of assets stolen is estimated around US$
554.89 billion.  Most of these stolen
assets are spread out all over the world, their transfer facilitated by
improvements in financial, transportation, and communication technologies that

have made it easier for corrupt leaders and other “politically exposed persons”
to conceal massive amounts of stolen wealth in offshore financial centers.On asset recovery, in 2014 Kuwait was successful in recovering USD 650 Mio
of stolen state assets. In Southeast Asia, the Philippines was successful in
recovering state assets stolen by former President Marcos to the amount of USD
1 Mio.  Indonesia in comparison has a
very low rate of success in repatriating stolen assets, partly due to the
complexity of the asset recovery process. The process can be time consuming,
resource-intensive and requires expertise and political will. Each measure of
asset recovery such as tracing, freezing, confiscation and repatriation
presents its own unique challenges. Unfortunately, Indonesia’s competent
authorities still have a lot to learn about the asset recovery system, for
instance on capacity to launch and conduct legal proceedings in domestic and
foreign courts, and to be able to provide the authorities in another
jurisdiction with evidence or intelligence for investigation. This needs to be improved in the near future because the National Strategy
on the Prevention and Eradication of Corruption as documented in Presidential
Instruction No 55/2012 targets to recover about 96% of the Indonesian stolen
assets. This very ambitious aim is almost imposible to achieve if the current
government, especially the AGO, Ministry of Law and Human Rights (MoHLR) and
the KPK have no strategic development plan to improve the current situation.Based on the above problem statement, Center for Asset Recovery (PAA – Pusat Perampasan Aset) of AGO and
Kemitraan have jointly initiated a program that focuses on cross border asset
recovery and MLA, namely “Capacity Strengthening of Indonesian Government on
cross border Assets Recovery and Mutual Legal Assistance Program” (SIGAP). This
program will be the solution to transform AGO and other relevant agencies as
capable agents to implement cross border asset recovery and MLA through 2
approaches:(1)               
Capacity
development by leveraging the capacity of PPA as well as other relevant
agencies on cross border Asset Recovery and MLA (2)               
Collaborative

works improvement on cross border asset recovery and MLA by regular
coordination among AGO and other related agencies.Since AGO has clear mandate on cross border asset recover according to the
Regulation of the Chief of Republic Indonesia AGO No. Per-013/A/JA/06/2014 on
Asset Recovery, Kemitraan will develop specific institutional strengthening and
capacity development for AGO, in particular for PPA, including an improvement
of the english language skills by the capacity development, Kemitraan expects
the change will impact to the effectiveness of cross border asset recovery
management coordinated by AGO. These two approaches will be applied by
integrating resources or experts from national and international counterparts
and also support from the high officials. Poliltical commitment and support ar
crucial to achieve effective implementation of all activities.Technical assistance will be provided which includes international
counterparts.  This technical assistances
includes: (i) relevant trainings to improve knowledge and skill , (ii)
developing SOP for coordination between AGO and KPK, MoF, OJK, MoLHR,  PPATK, SC of Indonesia , and (iii)
establishing cooperation with relevant international organizations, such as:  Bureau of Asset Forfeiture of Netherland (Bureau
Ontnemingswetgeving Openbaar Ministerie-BOOM) and Camden Asset Recovery
Interagency Network (CARIN). Kemitraan will jointly carry out activities with
AGO as leading sector or main partner of this sub project. This cooperation
will be bound in the form of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between
Kemitraan and AGO.In order to effectively run this program, a Project Offier needs to be
