Information gathered jointly by the Communist Party of China's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the Ministry of Supervision has been given to the local government departments, state enterprises, universities and other bodies that were investigated, China's official Xinhua News Agency reported.
The investigation was intended to confirm reports of corrupt behavior by officials -- including trading power for money, abusing power and bribery -- said a statement posted on a website run by the agencies.
In China's Guizhou province, inspectors found evidence of officials trading power for money, particularly in the construction engineering, mining and land leasing sectors, said Zhang Wenyue, who led the inspection in Guizhou.
Wang Hongju, who led the inspection in Jiangxi province, said several officials abused their power by interfering with construction profits. Government offices in that province were overstaffed, Wang said.
Abuse of power was also found at the Export-Import Bank of China, Renmin University, and the Ministry of Water Conservancy, the statement said.
The Communist Party of China began sending inspectors to oversee the performance of officials in 2003 and officially wrote the practice into the party's Constitution in 2008.
