Follow up of audit recommendation, dependence on the central government, portion of non-routine expenditures, size of legislative, voting results of local governments’ head, and local governments’ wealth have positive impact on the performance. This study provides implication that local governments should enhance commitment to complete all recommendations from BPK as well as to increase budget allocation for non-routine expenditure in order to have better performance. Through intergovernmental funds, the central government is able to upgrade public services and welfare therefore it improves local governments’ performance. Monitoring held by legislative members should also be improved in order to have better performance.
