Shifting away from PDP towards turnkey contractor


Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng has announced that Abdul Yazid Kassim will take over as CEO of MRT Corp from Feb 1.

PETALING JAYA: The change in the terms of the contract for the MRT2 project whereby the consor­tium of MMC-Gamuda Joint Venture is to complete the works on a turnkey basis marks a shift away from the Project Delivery Partner (PDP) model that the government adopted for large projects.

MMC-Gamuda was initially awarded the PDP role in the MRT2 project in February 2014.
