Koran Tempo, Page A2 (2)

Minister of Education and Culture Mohammad Nuh has appointed Syawal Goeltom to be the new Head of Research and Development at his ministry following President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyno’s approval of Khairil Anwar’s resignation from that position.

Khairil resigned from this position as Head of Research and Development due to the delayed duplication and distribution process of the national exam papers for senior high schools last April. Aside from Khairil, two other officials at the ministry resigned from their posts because of the chaotic implementation of the national exams earlier this year.

Previously, the ministry’s inspector general, Haryono Umar, revealed that these three officials did not resign. They were instead removed from their post due to a recommendation made based on the inspectorate general’s investigation results.

Minister of Education and Culture Mohammad Nuh deems the budget for the junior high and senior high school exam papers to be reasonable this year. He even went as far to say that it was more economical compared to previous years.

Nuh revealed that the Ministry of Education and Culture allocated Rp120 billion for six packages, yet only Rp90 billion was used after the tender.

Nuh admitted the implementation of the national exams this year encountered many problems such as the delayed examinations in 11 provinces causing the exams not to be held simultaneously. However, he said indications of budget misuse in the ministry must be proven first. He refused to comment on these indications before the investigation results are released.

Two days ago, the State Auditor discovered indications causing the state to suffer a total loss of Rp 242 billion during the implementation of two national exams in 2011/2012 and 2012/2013, enclosed in a temporary audit report. These indications were unraveled through 33 findings consisting of 13 findings in the central government and 20 findings in regional autonomies.

The temporary audit report also indicated the state to suffer a loss due to the winner of the ministry’s tender process for the duplication and distribution of the 2013 national exam papers amounting to Rp6.34 billion. Meanwhile, there is also a suspected leak in the state budget amounting to at least Rp3.59 billion during the distribution of the national exam papers for junior high and senior high school.
