The Planning and Social Relations Bureau (BPHM) of The University of Syiah Kuala (USK) hosted a workshop for socialising the procedures of 2021 budget revision and understanding the Standard Chart of Accounts (BAS) in the university. This event took place at Oasis Hotel, with the Vice Rector II, Dr. Ir. Agussabti, M.Si’s opening remarks. (Banda Aceh, 28 April 2021).
Agussabti in his remarks explained the importance of this activity to create transparency and synergy in the university. Therefore, the Vice Rector for General Affairs and Finance division said that the socialisation process needs to be understood well by all parties, especially those who are directly related to the BPHM.
“We expect that this socialisation would benefit all parties. The procedures for the budget revision are very crucial so that we would not see unforeseen findings in the future.”, as said by the Vice Rector I.
On the socialisation, BPHM USK also invited the Regional Office (Kanwil) of the Directorate General of Treasury (DJPb) Aceh. Both Heads of PSAPP Sector and the PPA I-D Sector from the office were the spokesperson in this workshop. Generally, the socialisation went well by following the health protocols, followed by an iftar event together.
The Head of BPHM USK, Abdur Rochim, S. Sos., M.Pd in this workshop applauded USK’s achievement regarding the accountability with grade A. He also expected that this socialisation would help increase or at least maintain the achievement.
So far, the unforeseen circumstances were usually caused by misunderstandings. In Jakarta (the central office), there had been instructions for the budget execution process from beginning to end. However, sometimes the investigators had different understandings about the instructions. Reflecting from such an event, in this 2021 budget revision socialisation workshop, it was decided to invite all related parties, including to the level of faculties (in the university).
“We deliberately invited the teams from (the university’s) faculties to find out which revisions should be made. Then, we would not repeat the same thing.”, said Abdur Rochim.
