Diorama Room, UIN NEWS Online– The Audit Board of the Republic of Indonesia (BPK RI) will be auditing UIN Jakarta’s financial statement for a week starting from Wednesday (8/2/2017) until Thursday (16/2/2017).

The Audit is started by entry meeting attended by echelon II, III, and IV officials and faculties’ commitment officers (PPK), Administrative Section Head, and SAIBA Operator SAIBA/Accrual Representative accompanied by SPI Team at Diorama Room, Wednesday (8/2/2017).

Rector of UIN Jakarta Prof Dr Dede Rosyada in his remarks welcomed BPK Team at UIN Jakarta and expressed his consent to be audited.

“Today we summoned all officials and financial statement maker to be briefed by BPK Team and then the audit shall begin,” said Dede.

Basically, UIN Jakarta is ready to be audited, Dede continues, because all the requested data has already prepared to be submitted to the auditors. All the necessary actions had been done rightfully.

“I hope the result will be good so UIN Jakarta’s financial statement could be classified as Reasonable Without Exception or Wajar Tanpa Pengecualian (WTP),” he hoped.

Dede asked to all officials and employee who are related to the audit, to be ready whenever the BPK audit team needs explanation for the audit.

The Chief of Auditor Tohirin, in his remarks informed that in last year Ministry of Religious Affairs Financial Statement classified as Reasonable with Exception because of two crucial things.

“First, the statement does not include enough explanation and the second is the statement does not record the source of debt,” said Tohirin who came with 6 other Team members.

Tohirin also stated that the base for BPK to give absolute opinion in ongoing year is the devotion of Constitution Regulations in executing the State Annual Operational Budgeting (APBN).

“This is the matter that we audited in UIN Jakarta, and we hope everything is ready when called for,” he asked.

Tohirin hoped in the auditing process, BPK will not have the wrong conclusion to assess the reasonableness.

“BPK can’t decide the absolute truth, but if the reasonableness is stated in the regulation with following conformity criteria. If it’s fit to the standard, explainable, and proven with the data, there will be no problem,” he said.

Tohirin appreciated UIN Jakarta’s goodwill to have nicely prepared the 2016 financial statement for this audit.

“I hope everything is according to the regulation. The SPI is effective, can give formal explanation both verbally or written and we want improvement each year,” he said.

As a closure, Tohirin made an analogy, that the BPK is a photographer whereas UIN Jakarta is the model.

“Our tools are already good and sophisticated with certified system and methods. Whether the result will be good or bad, it all depends on the model whose picture is being taken,” he closed. (rs)
