Indonesia is implementing the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), the global initiative for oil, gas and minerals revenue transparency.
Under the EITI, oil, gas and mining firms report the amount of revenues that they have conveyed to the government. Meanwhile, the government reports how much of these revenues it collects. The comparison and publication of these figures is overseen by a multi-stakeholder committee.
Decisions on “scope” are an important part of the EITI process. Scope refers to:
1. The extractive sectors, companies, and production units that will report.
2. The types of revenue streams that will be reported and the government entities collecting these revenue streams that will fill out templates.
3. Amounts (both in physical amounts and in dollars or rupiah surrendered to the government) above which revenue streams will be reported on.
4. Whether amounts reported by industry vs. government will be crosschecked with an effort to see whether figures can be brought into alignment (reconciled) with a possible limited audit of figures that do not agree or whether a full audit will take place for figures that do not match.
5. The degree of disaggregation (at the level of individual production units, at the level of companies, or only at the level of total revenue streams collected by the government) at which information will be presented in the final EITI Report
6. The time period that will be covered in the first reporting period.
This note provides recommendations with respect to each of these six dimensions of scope. These recommendations will be submitted for consideration to the multi-stakeholder Implementation Team in early August 2011.
