JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) suggests the government to adopt the electronic system and end the requirement for permit applicants to come and meet government officials face-to-face.

"This must be included in the government’s pan. In the President’s administration," said Laode M Syarif, Vice Chairman, KPK, Jakarta, Friday (29/9).

KPK also suggests implementation of e-procurement and e-catalog, which is already being adopted by the Surabaya and Jakarta governments, across the country.

Furthermore, e-budgeting can be used by regional governments and ministries to cut the long budget negotiations. Laode said irregularities would eventually occur when no agreements on the figures are reached (dtc/mfb)
