KPPIP Achievements

In 2015 KPPIP made provisions for and conducted monitoring and debottlenecking of 22 priority projects with a a total investment value of Rp 851 trillion, which was determined at the committee level and reported to the President by a letter dated March 18, 2015. At the end of 2015 the number of projects increased to 30 priority projects as stipulated in Regulation of the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Regulation No. 12 of 2015 on the List of Priority Infrastructures1.

Throughout the year 2015, KPPIP provided project preparation facilities for the preparation of Bontang Re nery, funded a strategic study on Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway as well as VfM and AMDAL studies on Panimbang-Serang Toll Road. Besides that, in order to ensure that the projects are implemented on schedule, KPPIP also facilitated coordination meetings to resolve issues and discuss funding schemes for the priority projects.

In accordance with Presidential Regulation No. 75 of 2014, KPPIP has 6 major mandates with achievements as summarized below:


A. Achievement of KPPIP’s Mandates

1. Determination of Priority Projects for for the Year 2016

Pursuant to Presidential Regulation No. 75 of 2014, in December 2015, KPPIP issued a list of priority projects in the form of Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Regulation No. 12 of 2015 on the List of Priority Infrastructures for the period of 2015-2019.

The projects were selected from potential National Strategic Projects duly stipulated in Presidential Regulation No. 3 of 2016 where further selection was made by KPPIP. In the process of preparing the National Strategic Projects, KPPIP referred to the basic criterion, that is synchronization between RPJMN, Renstra and RTRW, so that Green Open Spaces will not be tampered with. Other than the aforementioned basic criterion, the PSN (National Strategic Projects) were selected based on additional criteria covering:

A. Strategic Criteria:

  1. Strategic roles for the economy, social welfare, defense and national sovereignty (creating positive impacts on GDP, employment rate, socio-economic conditions, and the environment);
  2. Conformity between infrastructures (supportive and complementary to each other);
  3. Conformity between infrastructures (supportive and complementary to each other);
    3.Distribution of projects among regions.


B. Operational Criteria:

  1. The proposed project must have a high quality feasibility study.
  2. The Project shall either have an investment value of more than Rp 100 billion or play strategic roles
    in improving the region’s economy;
  3. Construction must commence by 2018. Based on
    such basic and additional criteria, 225 PSNs and one electricity infrastructure development program have been selected.

The priority projects were then selected from the list of National Strategic Project by taking the following matters into account:

  1. There must be an undisputed rmly-committed champion to realize the project, particularly to prepare for an action plan and project implementation schedule;
  2. The value of the project must be over Rp 500 billion; however, KPPIP will demonstrate exibility regarding the minimum project value;
  3. KPPIP not only considers projects with high investment value, but also takes account of projects with high economic value;
  4. KPPIP focuses on new infrastructure projects, rather than on maintenance projects or projects for procurement of facilities.

From such a priority-based process, 30 priority projects have been selected for 2015-2019, and these projects have been stipulated in Regulation of the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs No. 12 of 2015. Therefore, KPPIP can focus on these 30 projects without neglecting its mandates, but continue to monitor and support the debottlenecking process required for the PSN.

2. Improvement in Quality of Project Preparation

Panimbang-Serang Toll Road

In preparing the toll road project which was potentially implemented under the PPP scheme, KPPIP facilitated the provision of consulting services in the amount of Rp 2.6 Billion for conducting quantitative evaluation and establishing guidelines for the preparation of VfM study for the toll road sector. PT Marga Graha Penta was awarded the Project and has coordinated with Indonesia Toll Road Authority (BPJT), Directorate General of Highways (Ditjen Bina Marga) and Banten Provincial Government for the preparation of the study and the study was completed at the end of December 2015. The VfM study becomes the basis for determining the funding scheme for the project proposed under the PPP scheme.

In addition, in order to ensure that the preparation for the Project could be done without delay, KPPIP provided Rp 990 Million for consulting services for the purpose of preparing an AMDAL Report. PT Karsa Buana Lestari has carried out the study, given a detailed account of and preliminary dissemination of information with regional governments and the local community along the areas traversed by the toll road. In the process of preparation for the report, the consultant coordinated with Ditjen Bina Marga, Banten Provincial Government and Regional Environmental Protection Agency (BLHD) of Banten. By providing the fund, the land procurement process is expected to be realized on schedule in 2016 .


Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway

KPPIP provided Rp 3.1 Billion for consultation with a rst-class internationaly-known consultant as stipulated in Presidential Regulation No. 93 of 2015 on the Evaluation Team for Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Railway Project and appointed PT Boston Consulting Group – Parsons Brinckerhoff consortium through a series of selection process to review the proposal for Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway submitted by the Government of Japan and Government of PRC. The Evaluation Team consisted of the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs, Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs, Minister of Finance, Minister of Transportation, Minister of SOE and Minister of National Development Planning/Bappenas.

The components under evaluation encompassed aspects of commitment, government risks, technology, and user’s experience, socio-economic impact and project planning. The nal report on the work results, which constituted part of the consideration for the Evaluation Team in the decision-making process for the selection of the proposed projects, was nalized at the end of September 2015. The decision on the determination of the project funding scheme was made by the Government of Indonesia at the beginning of October 2015 and the preparation for the project could be continued.


Bontang Oil Refinery

KPPIP allocated a budget of Rp 12.2 Billion in 2015 for the procurement of a consultant, PT Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) Advisory, which was appointed as the consultant charged with conducting the prefeasibility study/OBC for Bontang Re nery. The OBC, which was completed in December 2015, became the basis for determining the funding scheme and served as grounds for Government support to improve the feasibility of the project.

In drawing up the OBC, the winning consultant worked collaboratively with a rst-class internationally-known technical consultant such as Jacobs Engineering, which is highly experienced in conducting technical studies on oil and gas projects around the world as part of the team. Such technical study gave some insight for the decision makers into determining the applicable con guration to Bontang Re nery that is in line with the policy of the Government of Indonesia with respect to the strategy to achieve energy security.


Synchronization between PPP Unit, Ministry of Finance, and Ministry of PPN (National Development Planning) / Bappenas

To avoid obstacles posed by different standards or overlaps in the process during the preparation for the project, KPPIP has coordinated with the PPP unit at the Ministry of Finance on projects potentially implemented under the PPP scheme. The synchronization was made by harmonizing feasibility study standards which also involved the Ministry of PPN/Bappenas and cutting down stages and simplifying documents required to apply for the scal support (VGF) and government guarantee.

Having clear standards in preliminary feasibility study is very important to ensure that the project is well-prepared, so that obstacles in the future can be minimized. Effective coordination between KPPIP, Ministry of PPN/Bappenas and PPP Unit involved in establishing such standards is expected to prevent confusion on the side of Implementing Agency as the party preparing the preliminary feasibility study.

3. Acceleration in Determining Project Funding Scheme

South Sumatera LRT
Through a series of coordination meetings and active monitoring by KPPIP, the Palembang LRT funding scheme has been decided to use SOE assignment under Presidential Regulation No. 116 of 2015 on the Acceleration in Light Rail Transit Operation in South Sumatra Province in October 2015. It is stipulated that PT Waskita Karya is assigned to build the infrastructure while PT Kereta Api Indonesia is to operate the railway facilities. By the issuance of the Presidential Regulation, all stakeholders are expected to perform their duties and obligations to ensure that partial target operation is achieved in August 2018.

Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (SHIA) Express Railway

For the purpose of obtaining clarity on the continuation of the preparation for SHIA Express Railway project, KPPIP facilitated coordination meetings to discuss the updated status of the project, including the funding scheme for the project. In the meeting, Directorate General of Railway of the Ministry of Transportation announced the cancellation of the application of PPP scheme in this project. In response to this decision, the facilities for preparation of the project under PPP scheme by PT SMI was decided to be discontinued and returned to the Ministry of Transportation.

4. Monitoring and Debottlenecking

High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC)
KPPIP has supported the process of transfer of land required to be used as the location of the converter station from PT Perkebunan Nasional (PTPN) 7 to PT PLN. In November 2015, the appraisal process was completed and both parties negotiated the price. Therefore, the transaction process could take place in December 2015 so the transfer of rights over the land could be expedited and PLN could start the construction.

Additionally, KPPIP also encouraged the issuance of the Location Determination for Lahat – Gumawang transmission line required for the purpose of backfeeding for PLTU Sumsel 8 Mine Mouth Power Plant (PLTU Mulut Tambang Sumsel 8). If this backfeeding process is delayed, the schedule for the HVDC project is predicted to fall behind schedule.
