FIA Held Webinar Discussing the Existence of KASN

Faculty of Administrative Sciences Universitas Brawijaya (FIA UB) held a webinar discussing the plan to eliminate the State Civil Apparatus Committee (KASN). Webinars are held virtually, Wednesday (10/2/2020).
The webinar was attended by several speakers who are competent in their fields, and discussed the KASN in which its existence still needed with some improvements to its functions and duties.
Chairman of Commission II Dr. Ahmad Doli Kurnia Tandjung, S.Si., M.T., revealed that the existence of KASN is a symbol of bureaucratic reform so that its existence should be reconsidered considering the importance of supervision in every institution or level.
“The basis for the existence of KASN is to become a big part and the need to encourage the structuring of bureaucratic reform,” he said.
Special Staff of the Minister of Internal Affairs in government field, Prof. Muchlis Hamdi said that the effort to abolish KASN does not necessarily abolish the whole institution.
Muchlis explained that the proposal to abolish KASN is relevant based on empirical considerations that first, supervision carried out outside the institution or organs of the president’s power causes a longer bureaucratic process.
Second, the supervisory procedure is not simple, it even creates overlapping authority.
Third, the results of the implementation of supervision may not be entirely executorial in nature, but still require other legal instruments.
Meanwhile, Minister of PAN RB 2011-2014 Dr. Azwar Abubakar, M.M., suggested that KASN should continue to function under independent supervision and fill ASN positions.
“My suggestion is that if the existence of KASN is still recognized, the focus will be on monitoring the filling of positions in the central and regional governments. Meanwhile, the function of reprimanding and guiding is the Ministry of Internal Affairs so that it can be heard more. So, in the case of operational activities KASN does not stand alone but sit together and cooperate with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, “he said. (OKY / Humas UB/ Trans. Iir)
