SOME 97 types of contract work under the jurisdiction of Ipoh City Council have been allocated to contractors via an online ballot voting session.

With the council receiving a total of RM7.86mil from various government agencies, the funds were distributed accordingly to eligible Grade G1 contractors registered with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) within the Kinta district, as well as contractors registered with the Finance Ministry office in Perak.

Ipoh mayor Datuk Rumaizi Baharin said the implementation of the ballot process was held to enhance the council’s transparency in the procurement process.

“The value of the procurement is below RM100,000, in line with the Treasury circular,” he added.

Rumaizi said the allocations were from Housing and Local Government Ministry, the state Economic Planning Unit, Malaysian Road Records Information System (Marris) and the city council itself.“The contracts, among others, include those for public engineering works, painting of roads and buildings, maintenance of buildings, supply of plants, beautification projects and supply of public utilities equipment.

“The funds will boost the state’s economic growth and will help ease the burden of the people, especially the G1 contractors who are directly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said. — By MANJIT KAUR
