Background: 

Indonesia is making efforts to combat corruption and build transparent and effective government institutions by undertaking various measures, one of which is strengthening internal control systems. Internal control lies at the core of integrity management. Internal controls require a high degree of independence and professionalism to function effectively. A lack of independence continues to make internal integrity management difficult.

The Inspectorate General (IG) of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia seeks to improve hospitals’ internal auditors and management capability to strengthen their risk management by implementing risk registering and risk mitigation at the hospital level. Following the issuing of Ministry of Health Regulation (Permenkes) 25/2019, each hospital under the Ministry of Health was given responsibility to comply with risk management and to work closely with the IG of the Ministry of Health to develop and monitor its risk register and risk mitigation to improve accountability, transparency and health services.  

After several discussions with the IG of the Ministry of Health, the IG has agreed to use Corruption Vulnerability Assessments (CVA), including a risk register and risk mitigation template based on ISO 31000 on risk management, as a tool to assess systems, processes and procedures to determine vulnerability to fraud and corruption and formulate mitigation and corruption prevention measures within hospitals.
