Profits and losses of the PNS mass early retirement, here is the account!

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The draft regulation on mass early retirement of civil servants (ASN) in the draft revision of Law No. 5 of 2014 continues to receive public attention. The discussion of the pros and cons of regulatory enforcement is now underway.

A public policy expert from the University of Trisakti, Trubus Rahadiansyah Prawiraharja, revealed that there are indeed pros and cons in the policy that the government will implement for the efficiency of ASN staff. Especially from a public service perspective.

On the positive side, he reasoned, the introduction of mass early retirement would certainly 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 received severance pay will increase day by day, especially since retirement has been a burden on the state budget so far,” Trubus told CNBC Indonesia, Monday (01/09/2023) .

Meanwhile, on the negative side, Trubus said, mass early retirement policies could cripple the civil service process if the system used does not take into account technological capabilities and a commensurate merit system.

“It took us a long time to replace him, you have to go through ASN procurement first, the budget process first, that’s a problem. I’m afraid later in the period of transition, public services are neglected, which means that the public will be harmed, it will be as if the government is no longer in charge of the state budget,” said Trubus.

Indeed, he underlined, the government could put in place a scheme to simplify ASN bodies while maintaining rapid continuity of public services thanks to schemes that have been put in place in other countries, such as the 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.
