At present, the ACRC operates the e-People system, which is the representative government digital communication system where 1,074 central administrative agencies, local governments and public institutions are closely connected, and 13 million civil complaints are resolved on an annual basis.

By securing up to 100,000 citizen panels, the People’s Idea Box will serve as a window to collect opinions on the government policies.
For the big data analysis of more than 13 million civil complaints and policy proposals accumulated every year, the internal data of the ACRC (administrative appeals, anti-corruption, Integrated Government Call Center (#110), etc.) and the external data of the public and private sectors will be connected and integrated in the form of clouds to be analyzed.
In this way, it will strengthen the function of forecasting civil complaints that predicts and s the damages directly related to the people’s daily lives, such as the recent urea solution shortage issue or pandemic situations, including COVID-19.
In addition, it will provide the EASY Administrative Appeals Service which gives customized ruling examples by administrative disposition type and helps appellants to fill out a written appeal automatically if they input certain information when claiming the administrative appeal.
Besides, it will enable people to use avatar when making corruption and public interest reports so that the identity of a reporter will not be exposed.
