- Corruption, Bureaucracy, Bribery
The purpose of this study is to find out and to describe why corruption continues to occur in Semarang Government although there have been many regulations or commissions made as an effort to eradicate corruption. A qualitative descriptive method was applied in this study to describe the phenomenon of why corruption occurs. The data were collected by in-depth interviews. The finding has shown that the corruption behavior occurs in form of bribery in the level of the civil servant executive ranks, including the mayor and legislative elements as the efforts to “speed up” the approval from the Regional Revenue and Expenditure Budget Plan. The occurrence of bribery behavior cannot be separated from the internal conditions in the organization or the bureaucracy, and it is also related to the individual, group and organizational structure dimensions. Bribery is considered a common practice as the official consequence due to the existence of a “transaction model” and there is a perception that bribery is not corruption because it does not harm the State, but is considered a bureaucratic failure.
