“UIN Mataram has recently changed its status from IAIN. We have not had much experience in the financial system management. Therefore, we conducted a comparative study visit to UIN Jakarta to study and gain more experience,” said Syamsul Arifin.
He said, UIN Mataram had recently transformed from IAIN to UIN. The transformation status brings consequences, including the financial management system matter that has not been established. He hopes the comparative study can provide an overview oN how UIN Jakarta manages the finances which will be applied in UIN Mataram.
“There are at least three issues we would like to learn about, namely the Public Service Agency (BLU) status, remuneration system, and outsourcing work system,” he said.
These three issues are very important. This is considering the financial governance in UIN Mataram has not run well due to the inadequate human resources.
UIN Jakarta PK Bureau Chief Subarja said, UIN Jakarta already has the status of BLU, such system enables the university to manage its finances independently in accordance with the applicable regulations.
“The system has been implemented, we already have several business units that become income for UIN Jakarta in the form of Non-Tax State Revenue or PNBP,” said Subarja.
According to Subarja, the system is considered very positive in the working unit finance management due to its flexibility and accountability. Additionally, the BLU also manages the financial system of several strategic and urgent budget plans. (usa)
