Findings: There are two main results in this study. First, risk management directly affect the integrity of the system. Second, fraud awareness mediates the relationship between risk management and integrity systems. Practical implications: The result of this study implicates the policymakers in Ministries and Government Agencies in Indonesia to increase organizational fraud awareness through the involvement of internal audits with risk management. The fraud awareness will greatly improve the performance of the integrity system. Originality/value: This is the first study examined fraud awareness of integrity systems and risk management.
