Humanis seeks qualified candidates for the position of:
Title                      :  Consultant for Project Officer Green Energy Transparency and Anti-Corruption in Public Procurement

Duty Station       :  Jakarta, Indonesia

Report to             :  PDM CRiDA

Duration              :  9 (nine) months



In 2023-2024 the Yayasan implements the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) Transparency Phase Two focusing on PPA transparency and anti-corruption provisions within the upcoming Procurement and Renewable Energy bills and the Open Government Partnership (OGP) action plan.


According to PLN’s report, Indonesia’s electrification ratio per 2022 reached 99.63%. 85% of this achievement is met through fossil energy-based power plants. The Indonesian government has a commitment to increase the use of clean energy to meet the need and fulfill its energy security as reflected in the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2020-2024, Indonesia’s 2045 Vision, the National Energy General Plan (RUEN) and the Net Zero Emission roadmap (still in draft). The transformation from fossil fuel into renewable energy is a big challenge for Indonesia, bearing in mind that there is still a high dependency on the need for electricity based on fossil energy.


Meanwhile, public procurement is the most lucrative sectors for local and international players that provide good, services, and public works for the country with more than 270 million population. In 2021 alone, it amassed a total of IDR 1.214,1 trillion or 52,1% of the National Budget (APBN). However, public procurement is the second most corrupt sector investigated by the Anti-Corruption Commission (KPK). The Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) monitoring from 2016 to 2020 alone record 49,1% or 1.093 of the 2.227 cases under the law enforcement agencies are related to procurement with the total state loss up to IDR 5,3 trillion.


The procurement and renewable energy bills, currently under the legislation priority (Prolegnas) and the parliament deliberation, are expected to tackle some of the challenges above. This program aimed to take part in assessing and enhancing the PPA transparency and anti-corruption provisions in regulating those sectors while also working with the OGP Indonesia in ensuring commitment toward improved regulation and public procurement and energy in Indonesia.
