  2. The government paid no money to KPISoft for the development of MySejahtera, which was carried out from March 27, 2020 to March 31, 2021.
    This was based on the company’s offer to let the government use the app for free for a year, as part of a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative.
  3. After the end of the CSR period on March 31, 2021, the government agreed to expand the use of MySejahtera and to work with KPISoft to expand its functionality.
  4. On November 26, 2021, the government ordered KKM to form a price negotiation committee composed of stakeholder agencies to negotiate the purchase and maintenance of MySejahtera’s service for two (2) years.
    The scope of provisioning and management of the MySejahtera application included the operation of MySejahtera, system development including additional modules, maintenance, data center management and third party services such as Google Map and the Places API, as well as SMS services.
  5. On February 28, 2022, the Ministry of Finance approved KKM’s purchase of the MySejahtera app.
