TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The State Personnel Agency (BKN) is currently preparing the necessary infrastructure to support the establishment of the 2018 civil servant enrollment test (CPNS), including online registration process through website https://sscn.bkn.go.id, administration selection, competency test (SKD) and skill test (SKB).
“Pending the official announcement of CPNS enrollment test from Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform (PANRB) Minister, the BKN has upgraded the capacity of SSCN website to anticipate huge traffic as 8-10 million candidates are estimated to visit the website,” said BKN spokesperson Mohammad Ridwan on a written statement today.
Ridwan explained helpdesk and service programs would be quicker, more effective, transparent, and efficient. The programs would be set online on SSCN website and offline at the BKN central and 14 regional offices.
As for the BKN Computer Assisted Test (CAT) for SKD and SKB test implementation, its standard operating procedure (SOP) and software feature will be reviewed and developed.
The 2018 CPNS enrollment test aimed at employing more civil servants in central and regional areas, hence the tests will be held throughout 34 provinces, allowing for participants’ distance and transportation issues.
Therefore, the BKN is looking into possibilities to synergize with the Regional Employment Agencies (BKD), Employment and Human Development Agencies (BKPSDM), and Regional Election Coordinating Boards (BKPP) across provinces, regencies, and cities that are already equipped with CAT facilities. Similar effort was also carried out with the Education and Culture Ministry’s branches boasting computer-based national exam (UNBK) and teacher competence test (UKG) facilities.
“With recruitment regulations that are competitive, fair, objective, transparent, without corruption, collusion, and nepotism (KKN), and free of charge, the public is urged to be aware of information related to the CPNS test. Do not fall into any party offering assistance to pass the test, with or without certain compensation,” he underlined.
