The paper examines the effect of performance accountability, regional income, e-government, internal audit capabilities, audit responses, and public officials wage on corruption in local government using fraud triangle theory framework. The increasingly widespread corruption cases even though abundance of government’s programs have been done to overcome them, let this research seeks to answer whether government’s priority programs are aligned with corruption eradication strategy. This paper uses local government panel data in Indonesia from 2010 to 2013 analyzed using multiple linear regression method. The result shows that performance accountability and public official wage have negative effect on corruption, while audit responses have positive effect on corruption. On the other hand, regional income, e-government, and internal audit capabilities show no evidence on effect on corruption. This finding is fairly robust in separate analysis on municipalities and local government outside Sumatra and Java. This paper provides empirical evidence that audit responses can detect corruption whereas performance accountability and the increase in regional income increases can contribute to curbing corruption.
