Organization design is a crucial process that orchestrates various factors within an organization, such as structure, processes, and people. In Papua Province, specifically in Jayapura Regency, the formation of Traditional Villages is affected by the implementation draft of special autonomy for Papua Province. This study aims to analyze the organization design of the Traditional Village Institution Keitemung in Jayapura Regency. The research method used in this study is qualitative research, with the location being the Traditional Village Keitemung in Jayapura Regency. The informants in this study are individuals in authority who provide information about the organization of the Traditional Village Keitemung, particularly the institution’s managers. The research findings reveal that the organization design of Traditional Villages in Jayapura Regency, especially in Keitemung, is not yet completely ideal. This assessment is based on two organizational dimensions. Firstly, on the structural dimension, the organization does not possess standard characteristics that serve as a baseline for measuring activities and orientation within the organization. Secondly, on the contextual dimension, the Traditional Village Keitemung does not fully describe the entire organization, including its forms and support for the structural dimension. To improve governance, it is necessary to design the organization of the Traditional Village with relevant drafts and appropriate rules, aiming to create an ideal organization that fulfills the needs of the public.
