PUTRAJAYA: The Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC) plans to call for the immediate audit of “problematic” projects. 

PAC chairman Datuk Shahrir Samad said the problem with the current process was that auditing was done only after the accounts for the project were closed. 

“I think it is vital for a special audit to be done on certain issues before the accounts are closed – it must be allowed. We cannot wait for a project account to be finalised for us to meet on it if the project is evidently in trouble,” he said. 

“We are toying with the idea of calling for a special and immediate audit of a particular project should circumstances warrant it.” 

He was speaking to reporters after presenting a paper on auditors' roles and public expectations during the National Audit Convention held in conjunction with the Audit Department’s 100th year anniversary on Tuesday.
