On January 12, 2015, Xinhua reported that the Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) has sent teams to co-locate with key Party and government offices.
So far CCDI teams have co-located with 59 departments under the Party’s Central Committee, State level organizations, ministries under the State Council, the People’s Supreme Court, the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office, the People’s Daily, and the State Grid Corporation of China.
According to Xinhua, “CCDI teams co-locating with government organizations is an important part of CCDI work. This work will only be strengthened and not weakened. The General Office of the CPC Central Committee, the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee, the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, the Central United Front Work Department, the National People’s Congress organs, the General Office of the State Council, and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference are the central nerve of the Party and State governance system, with centralized power and status. This makes it even more important to strengthen overall supervision. In December 2014, the central government decided that CCDI will send working teams to these seven units. This means that, before the Party discipline and the law of the land, no special organs or individuals will lack oversight.”
CCDI teams will be sent to co-locate with over 80 additional Party and government offices.
