The Government of Indonesia both at the central or local government had not been fully able to provide the quality of public services in accordance with the expectations of the society and the challenges faced. The result of the integrity survey ever conducted by the Corruption Eradication Commission shows that the quality of the Indonesian public service had only reached a score of 6.84 from the scale of 10 for central agencies, and 6.69 for public service units in the regions. In that case, bureaucratic reforms that change the mindset of government officials (bureaucrats) from the mental rulers to the mental servants of the society according to their own local wisdom were an urgent need. Some local governments make local vision and motto of local wisdom as a basis in providing public services. In this regard, how the influence of formalization of local wisdom in the implementation of Regencies/Cities Government in Bali Province on the quality of service in the field of licensing becomes an actual and interesting issue to be researched.
