The Indonesian Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on 9 October that it will review its defence procurement procedures with a view to introducing a consolidated policy. The aim is to simplify processes and enhance transparency, it said.

The MoD said the review is necessary in light of “different perceptions” about defence acquisition processes in the country, which has resulted in “misunderstandings in various institutions”.

It added, “Therefore, the government will soon conduct an assessment and a re-arrangement of various procurement regulations under a single policy.”

The MoD made the announcement following Indonesian customs authorities’ decision to block a recent import of firearms and ammunition destined for the Indonesian police force due to what was claimed as incorrect paperwork.
