The Indonesian Navy has signed procurement deals on goods and services worth Rp 2.22 trillion (US$170 million) with contractors, expecting to create efficiency, transparency and acceleration in the 2017 work plan.
The deals include contracts for weapons procurement (Rp 1.6 trillion), facilities and infrastructure (Rp 409 billion), personnel equipment (Rp 118 billion), education facilities (Rp 48 billion) and research and development (Rp 12 billion).
The contract signing ceremony took place simultaneously in eight areas, including the Navy headquarters in Cilangkap, in the Western Fleet Command (Koormabar), the Eastern Fleet Command (Koarmatim), and several naval bases in Padang, West Sumatra, Tanjung Pinang, Riau Islands, Merauke in Papua, Pontianak, West Kalimantan, and Tarakan of North Kalimantan.
“We expect the contract signings to speed up the Navy’s budget absorption in 2017,”Navy chief of staff Admiral Ade Supandi said in Jakarta on Wednesday (11/1).

Bakamla to procure new patrol boats in 2017
The Maritime Security Board (Bakamla) has announced a plan to purchase new patrol boats in 2017 to strengthen its patrol fleet in securing Indonesia maritime territory.
“We have planned to buy four new patrol boats. The boats are designed differently than the boats of our maritime counterparts like Navy or the National Police,” Bakamla chief Vice Adm. Arie Sudewo told The Jakarta Post during a recent interview in Jakarta.
Bakamla will procure two 110-meter boats and two 80-meter patrol boats, Arie said. The new boats were designed to have forensics laboratories on board to allow the guards to test suspicious objects immediately during a patrol.
Currently, Bakamla operates six patrol boats in the eastern and western zones of Indonesia’s maritime territory.
In 2017 Bakamla will get a budget of Rp 955 billion (US$71.5 million) of budget and most of it will be spent on the four new boats, which will be developed in the state-owned shipyard PT PAL.
In 2016 Bakamla received Rp 350 billion to finance its activities.
Bakamla coordinates with 14 institutions in the country’s maritime sector, including the Navy, the Water Police, the Customs Office, the Immigration Office, the prosecutor’s office, the Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry, the Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Transportation Ministry.
