Abdullah Said, Karmila Sari, Bambang Supriyono, Andy Fefta Wijaya


This study aims to find a corruption prevention model from the perspective of Penta Helix by using the concept of e-government maturity in the Regional Government of Riau Province. This research is motivated by the high number of corruption crimes in Riau Province, so it is necessary to develop a strategic model to minimize corruption. The research method uses a qualitative case study approach to the Regional Government of Riau Province, Indonesia. Data collection was carried out through in-depth interviews and documentation. The source of the data comes from the informants of the Department of Communication, Informatics, and Statistics in the Regional Government of Riau Province. Data analysis used interactive model analysis techniques by Miles et al. (2019). The study found the involvement of five stakeholders (Penta Helix) which was controlled by the dimensions of partnership and e-government management whose maturity was an absolute requirement for the expected corruption prevention to be achieved. The implementation of E-Government in Riau Province is currently still in the development stage, not yet at the maturity level, so it still requires an evaluation and development stage.


Keywords: prevention efforts, corruption, e-government, Penta Helix.
