Early research by the Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI) in Indonesia found that public research procurement regulations were problematic. The regulations restricted policy-makers from commissioning non-government research, thereby limiting evidence available to them to make critical policy decisions. KSI supported the National Procurement Policy Agency, and Ministry of Research, Technology & Higher Education to revise the regulation.
This working paper describes the problem-driven approach used by KSI, and its partners, to address this issue and reform the regulation.
