The objective of SIAP-1 is to contribute to good governance in Indonesia by strengthening integrityand accountability in government – principally at the national level. It will do this by supporting governmental and non-governmental efforts to strengthen integrity and accountability. Two major components of SIAP-1 are:
1. Supporting efforts by key accountability agencies such as the Corruption Eradication Commission(KPK) and the Supreme Audit Body (BPK) to strengthen integrity and accountability in government.
2. Supporting efforts to strengthen political integrity and accountability by reducing the influence of“money politics.” This will include support for efforts to strengthen the fair regulation of political finance and effective oversight and enforcement.
