Abstrak: Efektivitas Probity Audit dalam Mencegah Kecurangan Pengadaan Barang dan Jasa. Studi ini berupaya meneliti efektivitas penerapan probity audit dalam pencegahan kecurangan penyediaan barang dan jasa. Pendekatan studi kasus digunakan sebagai metode pada Inspektorat Provinsi DKI Jakarta tahun 2016. Hasil studi menunjukkan bahwa probity audit yang dilaksanakan oleh Inspektorat Provinsi DKI Jakarta selama tahun 2016 belum optimal. Hal tersebut disebabkan masih digunakannya sampling data dalam proses probity audit dan tahapan probity audit juga belum dilakukan secara keseluruhan. Selain itu terdapat hambatan pada penerapan probity audit berupa adanya keterbatasan sarana dan prasarana, anggaran, kompetensi auditor, waktu, sumber daya manusia, dan dokumentasi.


Abstract: The Effectiveness of Probity Audit in Preventing Procurement Fraud. This study seeks to examine the effectiveness of applying probity audits in preventing the fraudulent provision of goods and services. The case study approach was used as a method in the DKI Jakarta Provincial Inspectorate in 2016. The results show that the probity audit was not optimal. This is because sampling data was still used in the probity audit process, and the probity audit stage has not been carried out as a whole. Also, there are obstacles to the implementation of the audit probity in the form of limited facilities and infrastructure, budget, auditor competence, time, human resources, and documentation.
