USAID Integritas

Welcome to USAID INTEGRITAS

The USAID Indonesia Integrity Initiative (USAID INTEGRITAS) is a five-year, $10 million program implemented by KEMITRAAN in collaboration 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), the private sector, and civil society institutions at the national level and in five provinces.

USAID INTEGRITAS supports the Government of Indonesia in its corruption prevention efforts through increased community engagement and the strengthening of a culture of integrity in both the public and private sectors.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Background

Every year, corruption diverts millions of dollars of public funds into the pockets of individuals, accelerating environmental degradation and biodiversity loss. The United States and Indonesia are working together to prevent corruption by improving public oversight, expanding community engagement, and strengthening integrity in both the public and private sectors.

GOALS

The goal of USAID INTEGRITAS is to support the Government of Indonesia in its corruption prevention efforts by increasing community engagement and strengthening a culture of integrity in both the public and private sectors. USAID INTEGRITAS seeks to increase the capacity and role of Indonesian civil society to partner more effectively and support the GoI’s key oversight institutions while ensuring adequate prevention and oversight mechanisms are in place in the public and private sectors. The program’s activities will be implemented in collaboration with key government and non-government actors to achieve these objectives.

WORKING AREA

The USAID INTEGRITAS program works closely with Indonesian government agencies, the private sector, and civil society at the national level and in USAID’s five priority provinces:

  • DKI Jakarta
  • North Sumatra
  • South Sulawesi
  • East Java
  • East Nusa Tenggara
