Corruption leads to the downgrade of morale, therefore a systematic handling is needed by the ratification of UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) 2003 through the Government Regulation No. 7 Year 2007.

Therefore, BPKP has a continuing efforts to develop control system which is specifically designed to prevent corruption and to help and reveal events that have corruption indication which is called Fraud Control Plan.

BPKP have build cooperations with several government agencies (BUMN and BUMD) and it is still opened for other agencies which want to implement the FCP. Integrity factor plays important role in the development of corruption-free human resource. Integrity factor is used to eradicate corruption and nepotism. Integrity means that a person has to be honest and right in his/her actions. The integrity factor is used to keep a person on track in order to achieve goals.
