Meanwhile, according to the Economic Observer of Ma Chung University, Mr.DodiArifianto, although Papua has many funds allocated from the central government, but development in this area is still not evenly distributed and perceived community.
“So the central government should monitor the realization of these funds to the local level. Then an evaluation and imposing sanctions must be given if proven these funds are not being used properly,” he said as quoted by Kontan, Sunday (02/02/2014).
Government set DAU calculations based on a formula consisting of the fiscal gap and the basic allocation. Fiscal gap is the fiscal needs minus fiscal capacity. Calculated based on the amount of salaries of Civil Servants (PNS) proportionally.
