Policy implementation is the most difficult stage of the entire policy cycle. The effectiveness of a policy implementation can be measured from
the accuracy of the implementation, the target, the environment, and the process. The purpose of this research is to analyze the condition and the
problem of implementation of granting Water Utilization Permit (IPA) policy in Gunung Halimun Salak National Park (TNGHS). This research was
conducted in TNGHS area by using closed interview method (questionnaire) followed by in depth interview to key informant which is determined by
purposive sampling, context analysis, and Edward III approach. The results of the research showed that the implementation of granting IPA policy in
TNGHS was quite effective because it has been implemented in the right target, environment, and mechanism. However, not all phases have been
implemented appropriately. Problems encountered include: (a) the use of limited communication strategies, lack of clarity, and inconsistency of
managers, (b) limited number of competence counterpart staff and minimal administrative compliance, (c) discretion and disincentive, and (d) to
much bureaucratic responsibility and lack of implementation guidance or IPA policy SOP. To increase the effectiveness of implementing IPA in
TNGHS, some strategies can be added: (a) developing intensive communication and facilitation for Water User Forum (FPA) groups at each resort,
(b) providing capacity bulding training as well as additional incentives, (c) rewarding FPAs that implement IPA effectively, and (d) establishing
SOPs related to IPA policy.
