PETALING JAYA: The Transport Ministry’s Organisational Anti-Corruption Plan (OACP) is a big step in eliciting trust and ensuring competence in its services, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The Transport Minister said they were focused on strengthening the ministry's best practices in service quality for a holistic improvement to the entire transport ecosystem.

“Our OACP with 82 initiatives is a big step in formalising our approaches and steps in eliciting trust and ensuring competence in our services across the ministry's deliverables.

“These 82 initiatives include processes related to procurement, law enforcement, financial management, and administrative best practices, ” he said on Facebook on Wednesday (Oct 14).

Dr Wee had earlier witnessed the signing of the ministry’s Anti-Corruption Policy Statement based on the 2020-2025 OACP by secretary-general Datuk Isham Ishak.

He said they would start printing the OACP to be disbursed to all the ministry's agencies and offices, adding that it must be strictly followed with regular reviews down the road.

“Every agency must also develop their own anti-corruption policy statement which contains the parameters to detect, prevent, and act any form of graft, corruption, misconduct, and fraud related to the ministry, its agencies and other related stakeholders.

“Very importantly, the ministry's OACP also actively provides for a whistleblower policy where concerned persons have a safe channel to report any suspected cases of corruption, ” he said.

He also thanked the ministry’s management and the integrity unit for their input and contribution to bring the ministry's compliance with the National Integrity Plan.
