Depok, LAMSAMA – After the selection of Advisors in 2023, the Independent Accreditation Institution for Natural Sciences and Formal Sciences (LAMSAMA) conducted a synchronous Offline Sufficiency Assessment (AK) activity for two days starting on Friday (9/6). The event took place at THE 1O1 Jakarta Airport CBC, Tangerang.
The accreditation process for study programs with LAMSAMA initially involved the programs finalizing the documents completely in the LAMSAMA Accreditation System (SALAM).
Afterwards, the accreditation continued with the Sufficiency Assessment (AK) process. At this stage, the Accreditation forms were examined by Assessor 1 and Assessor 2, and then validated by a validator to determine whether the accreditation could proceed to the Field Assessment (AL). The event took place until the date for the AL process was determined.
This event was conducted simultaneously for the first time with the Executive Directors (DE) of LAMSAMA, 24 new assessors, and 11 senior assessors who would share their knowledge and experiences with the new assessors.
“The Offline AL itself aims to complete 24 study programs and will be followed by the AL process,” said Prof. Drs. Roto, M.Eng., Ph.D., Deputy Director of Accreditation in his speech.

Prof. Roto further explained that this was done because during the mock-up preparation, there were still areas that needed improvement and would be followed up in this Offline AK.
The event began with the evaluation of the Sufficiency Assessment Rating Table (TPAK) conducted by Prof. Dr. Muktiningsih Nurjayadi, M.Si., followed by technical explanations including IT and Finance systems represented by Prof. Drs. Roto, M.Eng., Ph.D., Drs. Muhamad Abdulkadir Martoprawiro, M.S., Ph.D., and Dr. Dra. Melania Suweni Muntini, M.T.

The event then continued with the revision of TPAK based on the validation results and concluded with the completion of AK and a presentation by Assessor 1, until the date for the AL was determined.
The assessors’ assessments play a crucial role in the AK and AL processes, as accreditation remains an important factor in Indonesia. Therefore, the descriptions provided must align with the existing values and facts. Consequently, the accreditation ratings can reflect the actual conditions in the field.
“This activity is expected to provide adjustment for new assessors, and in the future, it is hoped that accreditation activities will enhance the quality of study programs,” explained Prof. Roto.
With the successful implementation of this synchronous Offline AK, LAMSAMA demonstrates its commitment to improving the quality of study program accreditation in Indonesia. The assessors involved in this event are expected to make a tangible contribution in assessing and improving the quality of study programs in various universities across the country.
