Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Ministry of Education and Culture has selected local platform Adasemua.id as a partner for school procurement information system (SIPLah) through a rigorous process.

BCV is a company that focuses on the network which is committed to the development of information technology.

Zaidan noted the local platform in the next three months will focus on embracing around 3,000 MSMEs for boarding on the site https://siplah.adasemua.id/.

SIPLah is the official platform of the Ministry of Education and Culture as a forum for public schools to digitally carry out the procurement or shopping process for all their needs using the School Operational Assistance (BOS) funds. Through this site, all transactions will be recorded in an open and accountable manner so as to avoid misuse of BOS funds.

This digital transaction method makes SIPLah one of the solutions for using BOS funds effectively, efficiently and accountably, in accordance to the spirit proclaimed by Minister Nadiem Makarim who is one of the pioneers of economic digitization in Indonesia.

Furthermore, he was proud that Adasemua.id which is purely a local player, could be part of the development of national education.

"We, consisting of young talents full of potential, believe that we can contribute significantly and better in the process of procuring all the goods and services needed for schools throughout Indonesia, so we hope that education in the country can be even better," he said.
