Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The draft regulation on the collective early retirement of civil servants (ASN) in the draft revision of Law No. 5 of 2014 is currently underway. Even the discussion of profit and loss in the implementation of these rules is also being discussed.
Trisakti University public policy expert Trubus Rahadiansyah Prawiraharja revealed that there are pros and cons in implementing this policy. One of them relates to the aspect of public service.
On the positive side, the mass early retirement provisions will provide space for efficiency in the State Revenue and Expenditure Budget (APBN). Furthermore, the ASN pension funds remain the responsibility of the State.
“If it can be done en masse, it will reduce the burden on the state budget because the assumption is that if they continue to work, until the retirement age is over, then the severance pay received will increase day by day, especially since retirement has been a burden on the state budget so far,” Trubus told CNBC Indonesia, quoted Saturday (14/1/2023 ).
Meanwhile, on the negative side, mass early retirement policies can cripple the civil service process if the regime used does not take into account technological capabilities and a commensurate merit system.
“It will take us a long time to replace him, you have to go through ASN procurement first, budget process first, that’s a problem. I’m afraid later in the transition period , public services are neglected, which means the public will be harmed, it will be as if the government is no longer in charge of the state budget,” Trubus said.
He therefore also underlined that the government can put in place a scheme for simplifying ASN organizations while rapidly maintaining the continuity of public services thanks to schemes which have been put in place in other countries, such as Germany, Australia, Japan and Canada.
“They cooperate with universities, students who rank from 1 to 10 or up to 20 were recruited, trained, immediately filled with training, for example, in just 3 months, they can exploit all kinds of things related to the ‘computing,” Trubus said.
Thanks to a recruitment scheme that works with universities and no longer only in official schools, according to him, the ASNs obtained will be more professional and competent because the recruitment scheme has so far used the computer-assisted test system (CAT ).
However, the cooperation model with universities or colleges was faster as it was cultivated during his time as a student. Thus, those entering the government environment can be more skilled and quickly obtained than previous recruitment models.
“Before that, before there was CAT, they just took it, the signings were over, that’s why there was a lot of mafia. It lets the government know that now they want to fix this so they take their retirement because it doesn’t ‘fit their job,’ Trubus said.
