JAKARTA, MEDIA INDONESIA - The allocation of the education budget of 20% in the RAPBN 2009 is unsafe because it can be affirmed that it will not be managed properly. The larger the education budget, the higher the possibility of leaking, in regards the corruptive mental of the managers of the budget.

"I am worried about the increase in the education budget as much as 20% in the RAPBN 2009, without company of tight supervisory commitment and well-prepared program. Corruption will bloom again,” says education observer of Universitas Negeri Jakarta, HAR Tilaar, in Jakarta, yesterday. This evaluation was delivered in response to the findings of BPK and the report submitted by Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) concerning the mismanagement and misuse of budget at the Department of Education in the second semester 2007 which reached more than Rp815 billion {Media Indonesia, (9/24). According to Tilaar, the misuse of the education budget is not only the faults of asset management but it is also caused by the non-existence of program according to the needs at the organization control system of the central government.

Critics towards this misuse were also mentioned by member of Commission X DPR RI Aan Rohanah which considered the Department being too contented with the increase of budget without having any clear program.

"Asset management and organization must be improved by the Department of Education. The General Inspector should not merely proclaim an acknowledgment but also a soulution on how to solve the problem,” says Aan.

The weakness in asset management which was indicated by Tilaar and Aan is what gives opportunity to corruption. However, this was objected by the General Inspector of the Department of Education Muhammad Sofyan in a press conference, yesterday.

"If there is in fact a misuse, what kind is it? The budget misuse meant by ICW does not automatically classify under corruption. Procurement at the Department of Education is always accompanied by proof and physical form,”

He even concludes that the misuse mentioned by BPK is only limited to the weakness in asset management.
