Responding to the recommendations submitted by the BPK, the Governor of West Papua, Dominggus Mandacan, instructed all OPDs to continue to make improvements and improvements to financial management, which will ultimately affect the administration of government in West Papua.
“Recommendations from BPK contain constructive suggestions to improve local government weaknesses, as soon as possible we will follow up on these findings,” said Governor Mandacan.
