Surveillance system evaluation is essential for the system improvement. The Indonesia government is conducting the animal brucellosis surveillance to determine herd prevalence and detect infected animals in the herd. This study was conducted to evaluate this brucellosis surveillance system using the Outild’analyse des systèmes de surveillance (OASIS) tool. The questionnaire, developed based on the OASIS tool, was sent to officers in charge of the surveillance system at national, regional and local levels. After collection of information, a consensus panel meeting was conducted to validate and summarize the responses. The OASIS tool assessed the level of satisfaction, critical points and attributes of the surveillance system. There were 37 respondents, including 27 provincial, eight regional and two national officers. The respondents were most satisfied with the information dissemination component of the system. They were also satisfied with the utility of the system, laboratory capacity, surveillance tool, data analysis and communication. In contrast, attention was needed for field institutional organization, surveillance procedures and evaluation, sampling points, and representativeness. Corrective actions can be taken and prioritized based on the evaluation findings, focusing at specific elements which did not meet the officers’ expectation.
