Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) members met with President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to hand over an audit report on the first half of 2017 at the Presidential Palace in Jakarta on Tuesday.
BPK chairman Moermahadi Soerja Djanegara said the BPK had produced 687 reports and recommended that 14,997 identified problems be followed up by the government.
One identified problem, Moermahadi said, was the inflated $956.04 million cost recovery paid by the government to gas and oil companies.
Another finding was about contractors who had not paid taxes amounting to $209.25 million in 2015, said Moermahadi as reported by tribunnews.com.
While receiving the BPK members, President Jokowi was accompanied by Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung and Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution. (bbn)
