3. BPK Audit of MSME BLT Distribution

The Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) found information on BPUM or UMM BLT recipients that did not meet the criteria. The report was immediately followed up by the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs.

A number of settlement steps are taken if it is found that the recipient does not meet the criteria and the funds have not been disbursed, the funds are blocked by the channeling bank.

“Deposits have been made in accordance with BPK’s recommendations and tests have been carried out on funds deposited into the state treasury. All of the follow-up actions that we have taken above have been assessed according to the BPK and the Financial Report of the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs received a WTP opinion,” said Arif.

According to him, there are several factors that do not match the criteria for BPUM recipients, including the absence of a single data or database related to MSMEs and the very limited time for data collection and distribution as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, so that distribution speeds for affected MSMEs are needed.

“Therefore, verification or checking of data is continuously carried out,” said Arif.

4. MSME Actors Have Used MSME BLT Funds

BLT UMKM Phase II has been disbursed since last week. The amount received by MSMEs is IDR 1.2 million.

“It has been disbursed this month, since two weeks ago. The amount is Rp. 1.2 million,” said Chairman of the Indonesian MSME Association (Akumindo) Muhammad Ikhsan Ingratubun some time ago.

According to him, the assistance is for business actors in the ultra micro segment. Therefore, he did not enjoy the funds.

“Surely MSMEs have got it. Personally, I don’t have the right. Because that’s specifically for Ultra Micro business actors,” he continued.

5. Many BLT Recipients are Silent

According to the chairman of the DPD of the Indonesian MSME Association (Akumindo) South Sumatra Masayu Lela, the MSME BLT recipients are deliberately silent when they receive aid funds. He suspected this because many took advantage of the confusion of duplicate data so that there were several distributions.

“You should speak immediately when you have received MSME assistance funds. But usually only talk if you haven’t received it. But when it is liquid, you immediately shut up. This is even more risky because there is also double data,” said Masayu when contacted by Okezone.

He himself confirmed that MSME assistance from the Kemenkop UKM had been disbursed in the South Sumatra region. Most of them are accepted by SMEs in the city of Palembang. While in other areas there are still those who have not received it, such as in Musi Banyuasin.

6. Overlapping SME BLT Data

UMKM assistance from the Kemenkop UKM or BLT UMKM has been disbursed in the South Sumatra region. Most of them are accepted by SMEs in the city of Palembang.

While in other areas there are still those who have not received it, such as in Musi Banyuasin. This was stated by the Chairman of the DPD AKUMINDO South Sumatra Masayu Lela.

“It is true that some of our members in the Palembang area have received BPUM assistance. But there are still others who have not received it,” said Lela when contacted by Okezone.

However, he also criticized the BPUM disbursement process, which is still problematic in the field. One of them is the overlapping of data requesting assistance between the proposer from the Association, RT, Kelurahan, to the Village Head.

“The proposal should suffice from the SME Cooperative Service through an association that has clear legality. The association is responsible for all data on MSME members in South Sumatra,” he said.
