Abstract

This paper narrates the working finding of a case study entitled “Open Data Initiative of Ministry of Finance on National Budget Transparency in Indonesia”  carried out by Sinergantara Indonesia  as part of the Exploring the Emerging Impacts of Open Data in Developing Countries project – a network of case studies looking at open data in different settings across the world. The overarching project was initiated and is coordinated by World Wide Web Foundation  and is supported by funding from Canada’s International Development Research Center (IDRC). This case study explores the open data initiative in Indonesia, with focus on national budget transparency on the web, in particular the efforts developed by the Ministry of Finance of Indonesia since 2003 and accessible via www.kemenkeu.go.id.

Our research has found that although demand for national budget information is high, as indicated by high intensity of civil society organizations (CSOs) and research organizations involved in activities such as budget analysis, the level of budget data utilization from online sources is not yet accordingly high.
