Corruption Eradication Commission (Indonesia: Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi/ KPK) as an anti-corruption institution must be free from corruption problems caused by its leaders or employees. Based on these problems, the author needs to conduct limited research to reveal the factors that cause irregularities by KPK employees. The research was conducted by collecting data based on documents and theories obtained from literature studies and then analyzed to reveal the factors causing corruption by KPK employees. The results of the study reveal 5 factors that cause corruption by KPK employees, namely: 1) Lack of integrity of the perpetrators in carrying out their duties as Evidence Managers, 2) The perpetrators are proven to have a greedy nature, where the process of taking gold begins with a small amount and continued with a larger portion on the next opportunity, 3) The perpetrator has the opportunity because of his role in supervising and monitoring the booty and then taking the booty from the storage house on the orders of the investigator, 4) The perpetrator is proven to have more needs including financial activities in high risk portfolios in the form of investment in stocks/foreign currency, 5) The perpetrators consider that the exposure to punishment imposed on corruptors is not proportional with the impact of losses, example the case of KPK investigators who are suspected of destroying evidence in the bribery case are only returned to the original agency without adequate punishment. It is hoped that the results of this research can be input to all Ministries/Institutions to strengthen the internal control system and make more efforts to maintain the integrity of each individual employee so that similar problems do not occur in the future.
