Welcome to USAID INTEGRITAS
The USAID Indonesia Integrity Initiative (USAID INTEGRITAS) is a five-year, $10 million program implemented by KEMITRAAN in partnership with Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW), Transparency International-Indonesia (TI-I), and the Basel Institute on Governance. The program works closely with the Government of Indonesia (GoI) agencies, the private sector, and civil society at the national level and in five provinces.
USAID INTEGRITAS supports the GoI in its corruption prevention efforts through enhancing civic engagement and strengthening a culture of integrity for both the public and private sectors.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Every year, corruption diverts millions of dollars away from public spending and into the pockets of private individuals, and accelerates environmental degradation and biodiversity loss. The United States and Indonesia are working together to prevent corruption by enhancing public oversight, expanding civic engagement, and strengthening integrity in the public and private sectors.
The goal of the USAID INTEGRITAS is to support the GoI in its corruption prevention efforts through enhancing civic engagement and strengthening a culture of integrity for both the public and private sectors. USAID INTEGRITAS seeks to enhance Indonesian civil society capacity and role to more effectively partner with and support key GoI oversight institutions, while simultaneously ensuring sufficient preventative and oversight mechanisms are in place in the public and private sector. The activity will cooperate and work with government and non-government key actors to achieve this goal.
The program works closely with the Government of Indonesia (GoI) agencies, and the private sector, and civil society at the national level and in five of USAID’s priority provinces:
- DKI Jakarta
- North Sumatra
- South Sulawesi
- East Java
- East Nusa Tenggara
WHAT WE DO
