Jakarta – BRIN Public Relations. A high and proudest achievement in the field of archival supervision in 2021 was earned by former non-ministerial government institutions, now under the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN). The National Archives of the Republic of Indonesia (ANRI) has released announcement number: AK.01/06/2022 on the results of the 2021 Archival Supervision award, under the category of Non-Ministerial Government Institutions.

3 Non-Ministerial Government Institutions (LPNK) that now have transformed into BRIN managed to enter the 10 best national rankings for archival supervision score, including the National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN) ranking 1 (one) in the AA category (very satisfactory) with a score of 95.70, the National Nuclear Energy Agency (BATAN) gaining the AA/very satisfactory predicate with a score of 91.46 and the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) with a score of 86.86 (A/satisfactory).

The Head of BRIN, Laksana Tri Handoko, appreciated the results of archive supervision award that had been administered by ANRI. “I congratulate the archive teams of LAPAN, BATAN and LIPI who have now joined BRIN. I hope that this achievement can be continued by the next BRIN archive team and BRIN’s national archival supervision score will be better in the future,” said Handoko, Friday (18/2).

Furthermore, Handoko said that archives are important historical documents for institutions that can be traced for various purposes. For BRIN in this integration period in particular, archives are very helpful for BRIN management for good administrative governance.

The purpose of archive development is to increase the use of archives to realize good governance and increasingly resilient cultural governance. To achieve this goal, one of the strategic targets is to increase the compliance of Government/ Public Institutions with archival policies.

Therefore, supervision needs to be carried out in order to ensure that government/public institutions comply with archival regulations that have been issued the government. In the future, the results of survey from the community will be combined into a more participatory reinforcement.

“As an information manager, the government must provide archives for direct users. Currently, the public no longer seek information to the source, but it is the source of information that comes to the community. This means that we must be able to provide archives to the direct users or the public, because that is the right of every Indonesian citizen,” explained the Head of ANRI, Imam Gunarto at the Annual Archival Supervision Coordination Meeting Year 2022 and Announcement of the Results of Archives Supervision for 2021, Friday (18/2).

Imam said that from year 2016 to 2020 supervision was carried out to strengthen the foundation of archiving so that the focus was on policy instruments. Agencies with complete archive policies will have a very high score. This shows the commitment and support of ministries/institutions/local governments to proper archival administration.

“From year 2021 to 2024 we will develop archival system so that they are ready to transform into a digital system. The supervision process is carried out to see the readiness of ministries/institutions/local governments to move to digitalization. This means that the archive management has been running well starting from creation, management, up to service to the community. This supervision process is expected to yield output namely establishment of the ministries/institutions ecosystem to be ready to move to a digital system,” he said.

With the results of supervision from ANRI in 2021 and the monitoring process that will continue to be carried out in the coming years, it is hoped that it can be a motivation for the BRIN archive team to improve the quality of public services more optimally. (aps/ ed: drs)
