Warta Ekonomi e-Government Award 2005

This is the 4th year Warta Ekonomi magazine initiated its (Indonesian) "e-Government Award." As usual, I participated as one of the juries. The result is listed below.

Kabupaten/ Kota Category

  1. Kota Yogyakarta (skor: 815)
  2. Kabupaten Bantul (765)
  3. Kabupaten Sleman (685)

Province Category

  1. Jawa Timur (760)
  2. DI Yogyakara (720)
  3. Jawa Barat (705)


  1. Departemen Pekerjaan Umum (715)
  2. Departemen Pertanian (650)
  3. Departemen Koperasi dan UKM (610)


  1. Badan Koordinasi Survei dan Pemetaan Nasional (730)
  2. Badan Pengawas Pasar Modal (705)

Sorry, I have not had a chance to translate the names into English. Well, you get the idea by guessing the names. For the Indonesian version of this page, have a look at my other blog at

One interesting thing is that the winning list is dominated by Yogyakarta and its surrounding area (Yogyakarta, Sleman, Bantul, and of course its own province). This is interesting. I don't know whether this is a good sign (that Yogyakarta's e-Government is moving along) or just an indication that there were many e-gov projects in that area (and perhaps they are losing their stats). I hope the former is true.

In any case, congratulation to all the winners.

well Sir, I believe some of those site has decrease lots of poor citizens money in that area..ironic isn't it, to build that kind of site,( stupid site I think ) that don't give a damn to their daily need.
More ironic is, I've build one of those site, and the pemda's people never cooperated at all at the progress work. They just keep complaining about this and that..and how much money they can get from this project. And after couple years..and this award has been given, they still complaining why they don't get basic training to build their own web, while they just economic graduate, with no brain at all at "macromedia" either, we've been trying hard to teach them, it's about education again, brain is needed for perfect what should I do..proud with that award? that stupid work has coz me lots of pain, to my time, my job and my employee. Pls tell those government to stop doing something silly just for private income in that project.
And please, tell them to go to college, get better education :)
