The disclosure of various cases of budget lapses in some areas shows that supervisory practices have been weak. This policy note recommends a village monitoring model by the community that adopts four principles of social accountability in implementing the Village Law: relevance, publicity, refutation, and enforcement. Community can conduct supervision from the planning stage to the evaluation of village governance. Thus, supervision can be more effective and substantive than being trapped on administrative matters.
