RM500m projects to be scrutinised
PUTRAJAYA: The National Audit Department and the Malaysian AntiCorruption Commission (MACC) have agreed to a proposal for government projects worth RM500 million and above to require the participation of both the agencies.
Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Ali Hamsa said while the proposal was already in place, it will be improved with the establishment of a task force to supervise the matter.
“All parties, including MACC and the National Audit Department, have agreed with Auditor-General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang on matters involving mega projects,” he said yesterday.
In announcing the proposal last Thursday, Ali said the Auditor-General and MACC’s deputy director will be required to attend meetings as excos for various government projects, including the ongoing Mass Rail Transit (MRT) project.
