Accountability of Money Management Implementation Through the Banking Application System


Rukun Tetangga and Rukun Warga are the embodiments of community empowerment in the roles and functions of government administration, development, and community services. In DKI Jakarta Province, a new mechanism for reporting accountability of the implementation of the duties and functions of Rukun Tetangga and Rukun Warga has been applied. However, the community is not well informed about the accountability of the use of money for the implementation of these tasks and functions. The goal of this research was to examine the relationship between the responsibility reporting mechanism and accountability. This study used descriptive qualitative methods. Interviews were conducted with informants who were directly related to the research topic. In addition, community members were given document studies and questionnaires to collect secondary data. Based on the findings, it can be concluded that this program has not run optimally, even with as many as 123 RTs opening RT institutional accounts. A limitation of the program is that not all RTs in Kelurahan Menteng Dalam have taken part. Socialization of application implementation should be implemented.
