Jokowi also reminded about the simplification of reports that had been asked some time before. A stacked accountability report will ultimately make the apparatus more focused on reporting than on program execution.
"We are working to make a report or work to produce something," I said to make simple, simple SPJ affairs, do not make piles, make it 2 or 3, that's the maximum for me, "said President.

"Simplification of SPJ is the key that we must do so that our mind power can really be used to follow the process of existing activities and programs, check the quality, and not be concentrated or stuck to the number of reports we have to make," he said.

"A very good progress, but WTP is not a goal, the ultimate goal is how a program gives results and the program can be right on target," he concluded.
