“Promoting integrity and anticorruption” are among the critical issues that attract a serious attention of public administration around the world. It is widely acknowledged that corruption may not only undermine the quality of a government’s administration but also diminish its competitiveness. Administrative ombudsman is an important measure to combating corruption and promoting integrity. Given the current knowledge in this regard, it is submitted that administrative ombudsman is one kind of political intervention that aimed at investigating and remedying the executive power of central or local government. Although the power of ombudsman has long been institutionalized in this nation, its function has at best been mediocre and fails to meet the demand of current contingencies borne by constitutional changes. The purpose of this essay is to examine the institutions of administrative ombudsman in terms of its role in combating corruption, notably the roles play by Control Yuan and various offices of government ethics. This essay adopts a legal-institutional perspective to examine the current status of the institution of ombudsman, trying to sort out the associated limitations and caveats, and lay the ground works for future institutional reform and innovation.
