The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS - BY G. SURACH

PETALING JAYA: The Au­di­torGen­eral’s Re­port 2015 Se­ries 2 iden­ti­fied that the Health Min­istryap­pointed con­ces­sion­aires have failed to carry out planned pre­ven­tive main­te­nance be­tween 2013 and 2015 in all hos­pi­tals vis­ited, which cater to 30 min­istry-owned as­sets. Say­ing that main­te­nance for such ser­vices were less than sat­is­fac­tory, Au­di­torGen­eral Tan Sri Am­brin Buang said as at May 31, there was no ev­i­dence of any sus­pended pay­ment fees worth RM1.13 mil­lion upon 95 as­sets which were not utilised, dam­aged or dis­posed.

“In ad­di­tion, there were dif­fer­ences in pro­cure­ment value be­tween RM90 and RM9,620 for 24 as­sets at Sibu Hospi­tal,” he stated in the re­port. He also pointed out that 43 as­sets worth RM50,203 at Hospi­tal Sul­tan Ab­dul Halim and Hospi­tal Sibu were cat­e­gorised as V4L (As­set Not Found) with no register main­tained in or­der to record those as­sets for mon­i­tor­ing pur­poses. “While in Sul­tan Haji Ah­mad Shah Hospi­tal, no as­sets were clas­si­fied as V4L in the master list.”
