Government innovation has been one of key government themes in this Participatory Government. Government innovation is a process of seeking continuous changes and needs reflections
on public servants’ conducts. In this process, barriers to overcome have occurred. In particular, an audit is an action for guaranteeing control and responsibility to government administration. As a result, the audit has different philosophical foundation to government innovation which seeks self-reflection and changes.
This study focuses on the role of the audit to promote government innovation continuously and to internalize it in public organizations. In addition, this study has a focus on suggesting policy recommendation to support government innovation. The audit, of course, has its own purposes and
values and providing policy recommendation, therefore, does not necessarily mean that the audit is negative.
There has been no report of the case to have a tension between the audit and government innovation, but this study shows that the perception of public servants to take in charge of those works is different. As a result, it is important to develop the audit for customer-oriented and performance-oriented resulting from forming horizontal relationship between inspecting organizations and inspected one. In addition, this study suggests developing the specialty of the audit and more democratizing the audit process.
