Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Indonesia regrettably has shown itself vulnerable to corruption in the government procurement of goods and services that support national development, public life, and regional economies. This normative legal study examines criminally corrupt procurement practices in Indonesia from 2004 to 2016. It examines national rules for procurement, legislation governing procurement corruption, and convictions brought by Indonesia's Corruption Eradication Commission. Criminal sanctions imposed range from imprisonment to criminal fines. Public participation and the role of the community, particularly in filing complaints, are noteworthy factors in preventing corruption in the procurement of goods and services.
