LAPOR is an online citizen complaints management system and it was designed to increase public participation in the supervision of programs and government performance as well as the provision of public services. LAPOR is an integrated online system that is easily accessible through various online platforms including: 1) text messaging 1708 (based on Indonesia’s Independence day on 17 August), 2) mobile application (LAPOR!) on Android and Blackberry – IOS still under development, (3) the internet (www.lapor.go.id), 4) Facebook (facebook.com/ LayananPengaduanOnlineRakyat), 5) Twitter (@LAPOR1708 or #LAPOR), 6) YouTube (@LAPOR1708), and 7) Instagram (@LAPOR1708).
Through these online platforms, citizens can submit their petitions and complaints to uncover issues internally or in-service provision in highlighting existing challenges. the Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reforms (KemenPAN-RB) is the responsible agency for the management of daily operations and administration of LAPOR. Up until March 2017, LAPOR had attracted more than 560,000 users and continues to receive, on average, 800 daily reports through the platform. To this end, LAPOR has become the forerunner of national integrated complaints management systems.
Currently, under President Joko Widodo (Jokowi), LAPOR is still a cornerstone for complaints handling with KemenPAN-RB, KSP, and ORI as the national partners of the system. In 2016, LAPOR was defined as the National Public Service Complaints Management System (SP4N: Sistem Pengelolaan Pengaduan Pelayanan Publik Nasional) based on KemenPAN-RB regulation No.3/2015 which led to the Presidential Regulation No.76/2013 on the management of public complaints within public services. Together, KemenPAN-RB, ORI, and KSP manage LAPOR after the signing of Joint Memorandum of Understanding in March 2016 on the utilization of LAPOR as SP4N.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Indonesia has been initiating a new programme with the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to support the Government of Indonesia in strengthening the capacity of government to handle civil petitions that can improve public service provision over time. In doing so, UNDP and KOICA has been establishing a tripartite collaboration with the Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reforms (Kemenpan) to develop a comprehensive and integrated national strategy on the public service complaint management system. This joint collaboration is also intended to capacitate respective agencies responsible for the management and operation of LAPOR.
