Abstract

This research explores the implementation of e-procurement as a governmental measure to counteract fraudulent practices, particularly corruption, in the procurement procedures of East Nusa Tenggara Province's government. Carried out at the Procurement Bureau of the Regional Secretariat, East Nusa Tenggara Province, this qualitative case study employs in-depth interviews with several informants. The findings reveal a that the implementation of e-procurement aligns with established regulations, yet challenges persist due to a lack of officials proficient in its implementation and inadequate supporting infrastructure. Identified risks include the absence of specific sanctions for procurement fraud, potential collusion during direct encounters with supplier meetings during qualification verification phase, and external threats such as data breaches, misuse of identification credentials, cybercrime, and service disruptions.
