In the middle of the pandemic, BAZNAS Centre of Strategic Studies (Puskas BAZNAS) has a strong commitment to serving The National Board of Zakat of the Republic Indonesia (BAZNAS RI) in conducting the National Zakat Index and the Shariah-Compliance Index for the Zakat Management Organizations in Provincial and district level across the Nation through online platform. The online training has been started since the middle of July 2020. Besides, the event targeted to be accomplished in the end of September 2020.

the Zakat Management Organizations (ZMOs) in the East Java region take a role at the event on 13 July 2020. Many of ZMOs representatives across the region attended the training. The event was scheduled from 7:30 AM to 10:30 AM. The Chief of BAZNAS East Java Province and the Deputy Director of Puskas BAZNAS were delivered the opening remarks of the event. Furthermore, the Head of National Zakat Index (NZI) Division and the team explained further the concept of NZI, its implementation result for 2019, and technical issue for the web-based survey of NZI in the year 2020.

Nevertheless, this year also has become a starting point for Puskas BAZNAS and the Ministry of Religion Affairs to collaborate in implementing the Shariah-Compliance Index (IKSOPZ) in ZMOs, including in this Province. The measurement aims to evaluate further the Shariah-Compliance of Zakat administration in ZMOs. The Head of Strategic Research I of Puskas BAZNAS introduced IKSOPZ concept and its implementation this year to the audiences, which hopefully, all of ZMOs in the region could participate in the survey of NZI and IKSOPZ to improve the zakat administration nationally and specifically in the East Java Region.
