Model of Organizational Structuring of Local Government in Indonesia (Case Study of Organizational Structuring in Local Government of Cianjur Regency, West Java Province)

Fernandes Simangunsong and Imelda Hutasoit


Government organizational structuring is directed more on rightsizing which means simplification of government bureaucracy in order to have more proportional and transparent organization. Therefore, it is expected that local agency organizations would be slimmer according to the spirit of government reinventing in order to realize good governance. In the practice of public administration, organizational structuring had been oftenly interpreted as development or increasing of existing structure. In accord with it leaders of organizations had always tried to develop existing units of organization to achieve their goals. This point of view should be reconsidered, since, organizational structuring is not always identical with the addition to existing units. Organizational structuring can be interpreted as rearrangement of roles and functions without any addition of new units. Sometimes, existing ineffective and inefficient units can even be dismissed. Clarity in the implementation of authorities in local government would be the basic capital for policy making in organizational development of local governemnt. It doesn’t mean that every authorities requires specific unit in order to implement it, thus, it should be considered to have some authorities implemented by single organization in term that development of organization should always hold on to principle of "right structure, right function". Departing from concept above, local government organizations in Indonesia need to be assessed and reformulated, so that, 524 regencies/cities in Indonesia would have standard in organizational structuring and same naming pattern for local agency organizations between regencies/cities in entire region of Indonesia from Sabang to Mmerauke. The formulation for this organizational structuring would be carried out with model of case study to Kocal government of Cianjur Regency, West Java Province by using quantitative method and with simple descriptive statistic approach.
