The Role of TNP2K in Finalizing and Using the Results of the UDB Updating Exercise

1. Verifying Content and Data Quality

  • Apply lessons learned from previous experiences on the accuracy of individual and household information.
  • Prepare the initial filtering system for incoming data, particularly data related to incorrect names, addresses or double counting.
  • Prepare resources to conduct the verification process.

2. Integrating the Results of the 2015 Update to the UDB

  • Integrate data from the 2015 updating exercise with PPLS 2011 data, update results, ID numbers (NIK)
  • Prepare the system and the human resources required to integrate the results of the data collection and rank households
  • Prepare a tailored documentation system for each region which complies with the UDB’s guiding principles of transparency and accountability.
  • Prepare a system to verify that ID numbers in the UDB conform to 2015 the update.
  • Evaluate, internally and externally in collaboration with BPS the model used to rank households.

3. Update Program Beneficiaries

  • Compare beneficiary quotas in each subdistrict based on Susenas distribution and the 2015 updating results
  • Adjust participation in programs based on changes in household socioeconomic conditions, taking into account dependency on existing programs.
  • Communicate and coordinate with ministries and government institutions on program implementation.
  • Confirm program beneficiaries in accordance with the results of the 2015 update.
  • Prepare complaint handling and operational procedures to anticipate issues related to changes in beneficiary status.

4. Improve the Unified Data Base for Social Protection

  • In the long run, the targeting system needs to be sensitive to the welfare status of households and the extent to which this status can change.
  • On Demand Application (ODA) is an initial step to updating information on households through the involvement of local government. ODA needs to be pilot in several areas in 2015.
  • Training on standard methods to rank households should be delivered to local governments and integrated into existing BPS training sessions.
