This study reports on an overview of sustainability in nonformal education policy in Indonesia setting. A policy is set as a foundation to attain regularity in the development of a country. A policy is considered a success when it can be implemented by the targets of the policy itself, while a failure if the targets of the policy reject it and when its implementation finds many obstacles. Therefore, it is necessary to find out the main factors encouraging sustainable development of a policy in education sector, especially in nonformal education. This research employed a qualitative design and a case study method. The data were collected from inspector (n=3) and unit manager (n=2) in three areas in West Java, Indonesia. The results showed that factors supported to a policy success was economy value obtained by individuals and targeted institution of the policy. Meanwhile, obstacles found to inhibit sustainable development of a policy were attributed to firstly, discontinuity at rules set by central government to be further followed up by regional government and secondly, lack of engagement between institution and government in the implementation of the policy and short term implementation of the policy itself.
