PETALING JAYA: Datasonic Group Bhd has received an extension of its contract to supply raw MyKads to the government via the Home Ministry.
The extension will see the company supplying the balance of the 6.1 million raw MyKad identity document and MyKad consumables to the National Registration Department (NRD) for one year from Jan 1, 2020.
The company told Bursa Malaysia that the initial first contract was from July 1, 2016 to Dec 31, 2019 for it to supply the raw MyKad identity document and MyKad consumables to the government for RM260.40mil.
“Due to much better quality of the new MyKad raw cards and chips, there were much lower replacement of faulty chips and peel-off of MyKad cards.
“As a result, during the contract period of 3½ years, the NRD only ordered 5.9 million (49.17%) of the 12 million units of MyKad raw cards with huge savings to the government.”
In this new extension, the company said there would be no change to the value of items, quantity and value of the contract.
Datasonic also said that it is required to extend the validity period of the performance bond to Dec 31, 2021.
