GCG Implementation Assessment
CIMB Niaga evaluates the quality of GCG implementation on an ongoing basis, independently (self-assessment), and in collaboration with third parties to obtain more independent assessment results.
CIMB Niaga conducts a self-assessment on the implementation of Governance principles every semester in accordance with the provisions of OJK Regulation No. 55/ POJK.03/2016 and OJK Circular Letter No. 13/POJK.03/2017 on the Implementation of Governance for Commercial Banks. Governance principles consist of Transparency, Accountability, Responsibility, Independence, and Fairness and Equality at all levels of the organization and operational activities of the Bank. The assessment is carried out in a comprehensive and structured manner on implementing the principles of Governance, which includes 3 (three) aspects, namely: Structure, Process, and Results.
The Bank assesses the adequacy of its Governance structure and infrastructure in generating results (outcomes) that are in accordance with stakeholders' expectations.
The Bank assesses the effectiveness of implementing the principles of Good Governance as supported by the adequacy of structure and infrastructure to generate results that align with stakeholders' expectations.
The Bank assesses the quality of Governance outcomes to determine that the Governance structures and processes have been carried out properly and are in line with stakeholders' expectations.
In the self-assessment process, there are 11 (eleven) factors for Governance self-assessment, including:
- Implementation of the duties and responsibilities of the Board of Directors.
- Implementation of the duties and responsibilities of the Board of Commissioners.
- Completeness and duty implementation of Committees.
- Management of conflicts of interest.
- Implementation of the Bank’s compliance function.

- Implementation of risk management, including internal control system.
- Provision of funds for related parties, and large exposures.
- Transparency of the Bank’s financial and nonfinancial conditions, GCG implementation report, and internal reporting.
- Strategic plan of the Bank.
In addition to the above 11 factors, the assessment is also conducted on other relevant and significant aspects of Governance implementation. The outcome of the selfassessment is based on the results of questionnaires from selected respondents and incorporates findings from within the Bank based on the questionnaire results. The findings are gathered from various units in the Bank. Among them is the self-assessment outcome of each unit, information from the Internal Audit, Anti-fraud Management, Risk Management, Human Resources, Compliance, and others unit, including findings from regulators.
PARTIES CONDUCTING THE ASSESSMENT
The self-assessment process involves the Board of Commissioners, Board of Directors, Independent Parties, and Executive Officers of the Bank to generate a comprehensive and structured evaluation of the effectiveness of the Governance system and quality of the Bank’s Governance outcome. The self-assessment is also conducted on GCG implementation within the subsidiaries as stipulated by the financing and capital market sector authorities. Results of the subsidiary self-assessment are then consolidated using an internal methodology based on materiality and significance.
The following is the GCG self-assessment results in Semesters I and II of 2022 , individually and consolidated:
