Jakarta-wapresri.go.id Vice President Jusuf Kalla said, in the era of information transparency as it is now, each ministry and government agency are required to provide information related to their duties and responsibilities transparently and openly to the public.

The Vice President stated this in the handover ceremony of Public Information Openness (KIP) Awards 2016 at the Vice Presidential Palace on Jalan Merdeka Selatan, Jakarta, Tuesday (Dec. 20).

The Vice President then appreciated the event which was held by the Central Information Commission, which provides an assessment of the accountability of an institution.

According to the Vice President, in the current era, it is more easily to get public information than it was in the past.

“However, the ease of such information gathering needs to be backed up by an effective system, in addition to the readiness to receive feedback from the community,” he said.

Earlier, in his report the Central Information Commission Chairman John Fresly said the openness of Public Information is very important because it is the main instrument in the accountability of the duties of a public agency.

This, he added, is contained in Law No. 14 of 2008 on Public Information Openness (KIP) which mandates all public institutions to provide public information under its authority effectively and efficiently, as well as in a way that is accurate, true, not misleading, and easily accessible by the public.

At the end of the event, the Vice President presented the KIP award for those in rank one, two, and three. The awards for rank four to ten were handed over by the Chairman of the Central Information Commission John Fresly.
