Abstract

Corruption is one of the major challenges that affect the world with their harmful effects that obstruct the development of the countries. Corruption exists everywhere, where most developing and developed nations affected by the harmful effects of corruption. Different countries proposed different strategies and approaches to reduce corruption. The conventional strategies and approaches of anti-corruption are often focused on organizational reform, law enforcement and social change. A lot of studies have reported that the information system applications play a vital role in public management. This indicates that the information systems have a lot of prospects in reducing the corruption. Therefore it is the interest of this paper to review the existing FISs and how it can be used to reduce corruption. To review the existing FISs, the study employs a repetitive design approach, which comprises literature review, content analysis and website analysis. It attempts to explore the theoretical background on the concepts of anti-corruption strategies, the coalition of anti-corruption, the common contribution factors and well-known FISs. The result of this review could help shape the direction of both future theoretical and empirical studies on anti-corruption, specifically on enhancing FISs in order to reduce corruption. This study could play a significant role in explaining the complex relationships between the related factors and quality of FISs to facilitate the anti-corruption process.
