Asset Evaluation for Post-Disaster Project Built by Central Government in Banda Aceh Indonesia
The tsunami that struck Aceh on 26th December 2004 had received the largest international aid-response due to the tremendous destruction. About USD 2.6 billion were spent on projects implemented by the Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Bureau (BRR NAD-Nias). The fact is that when BRR were dissolved, there is still not a single asset that has been transferred to the Aceh government until at present and no evaluation made so far. The objective of this study is to evaluate these assets – government offices, schools, and community health centres at sub-district level – based on end-user judgements. This study had applied the quantitative approach and for the sampling method, first started with random cluster sampling that covered 45% buildings and followed by the simple random method with the target of 1 building to 1 respondent. From 48 questionnaires distributed, 50% were completed and collected. For the purpose of data analysis, this study made use of descriptive statistics-median, RII (Relative Important Index), and mode analysis. The results were utilised as planned and accepted, however, with unclear transfer processes and incomplete documents. As a conclusion, these assets could not be regarded as assets belonging to the Aceh government until proper documentation has been completed.
