JAKARTA. To strengthen its monitoring of access to state financial transactions, the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) has built a data center in order to conduct e-audits.

The e-audit development is based on what is stated in article 10 of Law No. 15 of 2004 concerning the examination of the management and responsibility of state finances. Where the BPK has the authority to request documents and access all data from the manager and person in charge of state finances.

Chairman of the BPK, Hadi Poernomo, said that the data center is useful for carrying out e-audits, namely an audit process that utilizes the BPK data center so that audits can run faster, be younger, and have more effective results.

“Through e-audit, BPK can expand the number of sampling, even later on by population, so that it can cover almost the entire amount of state finances that must be examined,” he said at the BPK Building, Wednesday (22/1).

Hadi explained, through the e-audit, all accounts of state financial managers and their accountability can be tested by the BPK.

In this case, the BPK can trace and track and trace transactions carried out by the state financial managers to gain confidence in the correctness of the amount, the completeness of the details, and the clarity of the financial source, without being able to be manipulated and intervened by any party.

Therefore, there are five benefits of BPK’s e-audit according to Hadi.

1. Grants and social assistance. The BPK can already check whether the grants and social assistance expenditures are given in accordance with the regulations, given to those who are entitled, and for what use. “By utilizing the data center, BPK examiners can quickly find indications of irregularities, making it easier for physical checks in the field,” said Hadi.

2. Official Travel. Hadi said that in a matter of minutes, the BPK examiner could find out whether the official travel data was fictitious, the price was marked up, or the ticket was faked.

3. Testing state revenues through the recipient identification number (NTPN) systemically. Through this system, BPK can test the correctness of certain NTPN numbers and codes. “If there is a discrepancy, it can be BPK’s findings that will be explored,” explained Hadi.

4. Systemic testing of LKPP / LKKL / LKPD. Through e-accounts that use the BPK data center, this state financial audit institution can make systemic financial reports as a comparison to financial reports prepared by ministries and institutions.

5. Testing motor vehicle taxes. BPK auditors, according to Hadi, can easily monitor and check the truth to test systemically whether the regional tax assessment (SKPD) that has been issued for payment has entered the regional treasury.
