REPUBLIKA.CO.ID – Surabaya Mayor Tri Rismaharini received the Mayor Recognition’s Awards (MRA) from the Eastern Regional Organization for Planning and Human Settlements (EAROPH) at the Borobudur Hotel in Jakarta on Monday (11/8/2014).

Rismaharini pointed to the use of the Government Resources Management System (GRMS) in assuring her success as mayor.

“Surabaya started using GRMS in 2003 to replace its manual system. As a result, the government can perform its duties more effectively. The new system has enabled us to reduce spending and perform jobs more easily,” she said.

Since 2013, the Surabaya city administration has consistently developed information technology-based government management systems, she added.

The system also enabled the local government to manage performance in a transparent way, she said.

Rismaharini, who was also former chief of the Surabaya city development planning board (Bappeko), further spoke of her city’s online licensing system, called “Surabaya Single Window” (SSW).

In using the SSW, she expressed hope the public could be served well, particularly with regard to licensing.

“By doing so, the public will feel more it is more convenient to live in Surabaya, because the system is not complicated and, consequently, investors will find it easier to invest in the city,” she said.
