Despite the nature of public organizations that have a control mechanism, illegal practices often occur in public sectors due to the lack of control. Indonesia's Directorate General of Tax is implementing a whistleblowing system to detect illegal practices in its institution. This research describes the relation between the whistleblowing system and the Government's Internal Control System in the directorate to improve internal control. After analyzing data from in-depth interviews, studies of related published documents, and observations, results suggest that reform in the whistleblowing system does not only serve as a tool to improve internal control; it is also a part of the control itself. However, the positioning of units in charge of the whistleblowing system needs to be reviewed. Moreover, supporting facilities for whistleblowers need improvement.
