SOP Must Comply with Standards and Easy to Apply


The Quality Assurance Group (GJM) of the Faculty of Law, Brawijaya University (FH UB) held a workshop on procedures for preparing Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) to improve internal governance, service quality, and achieve predetermined strategic goals.

The activity which took place in courtroom 1, Building A, 6th floor of FH, Wednesday (15/11/2023) presented all levels of leadership from Unit, Department, to Dean level. The material regarding procedures for preparing SOPs was delivered by two presenters from GJM FH UB, namely, Agis Ardhiansyah, S.H., LL.M., and Dony Aditya Prasetyo, S.H., M.H.

According to Agis, the aim of holding this workshop is to refine the SOP that already exists at FH UB.

“There are several SOPs that need to be reviewed because they do not meet the standards, therefore through this workshop we hope to make the SOPs at FH UB comply with the standards,” said Agis.

The preparation of SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) that comply with standards refers to statutory regulations, namely from the Regulation of the Minister of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform of the Republic of Indonesia Number 35 of 2012 and Regulation of the Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education of the Republic of Indonesia Number 71 of 2017.

Agis also said that each unit must ensure that the SOPs prepared are in accordance with the specific context and needs of the faculty or department. In addition, SOPs must be implemented.

“Don’t let the SOP is correct, but not easy to implement. This is what we need to fix,” said Agis.

In addition to general explanation of the function of SOPs, a technical explanation for preparing SOPs was also given by Dony Aditya Prasetyo, S.H., M.H. Dony explained that the technicalities of making SOPs also need to be considered and in accordance with standards.

“Sometimes people only focus on the SOP flowchart, even though actually there are many components that still need to be filled in, such as the SOP identity at the beginning of the page,” said Dony.

The hope is that with this activity, the SOP at FH can be in accordance with standards and can become a guide or guidance for FH UB academic community in improving services to stakeholders. (FH PR/ OKY/ UB PR/ Trans. Iir)
