AG's Report: Second series shows 91.1% of projects encountered problems

KUALA LUMPUR: The second series of the 2013 Auditor-General's Report was tabled in Parliament Monday.

Auditor-General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang said eight programmes, activities and projects as well as three subsidiary companies were audited this time around.

"In general, the Federal Statutory Body has good planning. However, in terms of implementation, 91.1% of the programmes, activities and projects encountered issues of inefficiency, non-compliance of regulations such as work, supply, non-compliance of specification, work that was not of quality, unreasonable delays, poor acquisition management of contract and maintenance of government assets.

"However, leakages have been reduced up to 75% compared with the first series of the 2013 Auditor-General's Report," said Ambrin in the report.

This is the second out of the three series of reports which highlights the discrepancies and the way of spending monies by the various government departments and agencies.

The first series, which was released on April 8, listed 283 spending-related issued by ministries, departments, statutory bodies and subsidiaries.

The number of issues raised in the first installment of the 2013 report was more than last year’s total of 256.

Under a new system introduced in 2012, the A-G’s Report that used to be presented once a year is now divided into three parts and to be tabled in the Dewan Rakyat’s three meetings. This is to allow for greater public scrutiny.
