In the near future, Sri Mulyani said that the Budget Implementation List (DIPA) will be submitted to all ministries and agencies. All of the relevant parties are expected to be able to immediately draw up plans for the spending implementation and realize them as soon as 2022 starts.
“Mr. President will deliver the DIPA submission at the end of this month. However, the President has instructed all ministries/agencies to start preparing (immediately) for the implementation of the 2022 State Budget," she added.
For 2022, the President has also asked all of ministries and agencies to reserve a minimum 5% of the budget ceiling. This move is to anticipate the development of the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
"Mr. President has instructed all ministries/agencies to provide reserves, so that if a situation like the one we faced with the Delta Variant in last July-August happened again, we don't need to do refocusing which may disrupt the implementation of the budget," she concluded.
