Universitas Gadjah Mada received an A (excellent) in the annual Performance Accountability report assessed by the Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform. This perfect score marks UGM as the only institution with Legal Entity State University status that is awarded an A and thus considered excellent in accountability and performance.
UGM Vice-Rector for Planning, Finance, and Information System Dr. Supriyadi hoped the UGM family would respond to the achievement by maintaining their motivation to improve and advance the university’s governance.
“We are very proud of this. Every government institution needs to participate in the assessment. The A score we receive will motivate us, even more, to improve the university’s governance to achieve our vision and mission,” said Supriyadi, Tuesday (23/2).
According to him, with an A, UGM managed to exceed the target that was initially set by the Ministry of Education and Culture, which specified each institution of Legal Entity State University to score a BB.
“We are certainly grateful. It is not easy to achieve this. Many Ministries and Director-General agencies even only get a B,” he explained.
Supriyadi explained that the assessment aimed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the performance accountability shown by each unit of government institutions. Assessment indicators included strategic plans, targets, supervision, assessment processes, and performance measurement in each internal work unit. Only those institutions that had a planning framework and had prepared, implemented, and supervised existing activities eligible for the assessment.
UGM itself has a five-year strategic plan, a one-year strategic plan, performance targets, performance agreements between leaders and subordinates, agreements between the Rector and the Ministry, and between the Dean and the head of the work unit. The university has a well-managed performance measurement system and evaluates it regularly every period.
“The monitoring is done every three months and half a month before being reported. The evaluation of the results determines which have been achieved or which have not to suggest the immediate action needed to improve what lacks,” Supriyadi concluded.
