The Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) reported indications of graft on Wednesday in the use of Rp 158 billion ($16.5 million) from the University of Indonesia (UI) budget.
The BPK reported their findings during a meeting on Wednesday with several UI stakeholders, including the head of the UI Alumni Association, Chandra Motik Yusuf.
Chandra told journalists after the meeting that there were â€śodditiesâ€ť in the use of Rp 41 billion in the UI budget for the 2008-2010 period, and Rp 117 billion in the 2011-2012 budget.
â€śThis is shocking news that makes us very concerned. The BPK finding strengthens indications of corruption in UI,â€ť Chandra said.
She added that the largest budget misuse allegedly came from the construction project of a studentsâ€™ dormitory in Pegangsaan Timur, Jakarta, which involved a company identified only as NNL.
A large amount of misuse also allegedly involves the procurement of IT equipment for UIâ€™s central library.
Chandra said the BPK had also informed the House of Representatives of their findings, adding it provided evidence of corruption at UI.
â€śWeâ€™ve only heard about [alleged graft in UI], but we have the concrete evidence now,â€ť Chandra said, as quoted by Indonesian news portal kompas.com.
