A-G Report: Malaysian Youth Council paid for same jobs multiple times

The Auditor-General’s Department found that the Malaysian Youth Council (MBM) made multiple payments for the same job more than once.

In its 2012 report, it found that the MBM made between two and three payments for the same job on six different occasions, and labelled these "improper payments".

The payments varied between RM26,500 and RM41,000, totaling RM430,000.

MBM is a youth NGO which receives aid from the Youth and Sports Department.

In response, the Department said it sent a letter to MBM to get back the RM220,900 excess payments paid to M&S Event & Resources (RM186,300) and Khaliff Enterprise (RM34,600).

“A reminder on the issue was sent to MBM. A committee has also been formed to investigate the issue and to improve the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) of JSBN,” it said.
