The Corruption Eradication Commission is a state institution within the executive power cluster which in carrying out its duties and authorities is independent and free from the influence of any power.

The KPK is accountable to the public and submits its reports openly and periodically to the President, DPR and BPK.

            The KPK is led by the KPK leadership which consists of five people, a chairman who is also a member and four deputy chairmen who are also members. The five KPK leaders are state officials, who come from elements of government and elements of society. KPK leaders hold office for four years and can be re-elected only for one term. In making decisions, the KPK leadership is collegial collective in nature.

        The leadership of the KPK is in charge of five areas, which consist of: the field of  Education and Community Participation , the field of Prevention and Monitoring , the field of Enforcement and Execution , the field of Coordination and Supervision , and the field of Information and Data . Each of these fields is led by a Deputy. The KPK leadership also oversees the Inspectorate which is led by an Inspector. The KPK is also assisted by  the Secretariat General  , which is led by a Secretary General who is appointed and dismissed by the President of the Republic of Indonesia, but is responsible to the KPK leadership.

        Provisions regarding the organizational structure of the KPK are regulated in such a way as to enable the wider community to continue to participate in the activities and steps taken by the KPK.
