Establishing an anti-corruption agency is one of many efforts to reduce corruption levels. The political-will governments, people pressure, and international actors role are all reasons why anti-corruption agencies are and have been established around the world. Many factors influence the effectiveness of an anti-corruption agency in performing its duties. By assessing one such agency, The IBI in Indonesia’s MoF as lesson-learned, this study assesses to what extent an anticorruption agency can work effectively to reduce corruption. This study analyzes the evolution of IBI explores the overall capacity needed by IBI to perform its duties. The findings of the study show that political-will, organizational settlement, and human resource are the success factor for an anti-corruption agency. However, a strong conclusion cannot be drawn, and further research is needed if only due to the secretive and taboo nature of corruption practices.
