The process of evaluating program proposals and activities for the Regional PEN is carried out through coordination between relevant agencies, namely the Directorate General of Fiscal Balance (DJPK) of the Ministry of Finance (the process of evaluating compliance with PEN policies and permits for exceeding deficits), the Ministry of Home Affairs (the process of considering the PEN loan application), and PT SMI (the process of evaluating financial aspects and the suitability of programs and activities).
PT SMI as a catalyst for national infrastructure development, has played an active role in realizing PEN's goals so that national economic recovery can be realized immediately & provide social, economic & environmental benefits for the people of Indonesia.
