PETALING JAYA: The Auditor-General’s 2019 report (Series 2) had found that the uCustom's system’s physical development was at 91.9% as of July 26, 2020.

This clarification was made by the National Audit Department to The Star on Wednesday (Oct 6), in reference to an online report quoting the project’s vendor, Brilliance Information Sdn Bhd, as saying that the A-G's 2019 report had claimed only 27% of the project had been completed.

The uCustoms system was a project introduced by the Customs Department to replace an older information system that had been in place since 1995.

In its statement Wednesday, the National Audit Department noted that audit findings, stated in the A-G’s 2019 report (Series 2), had found that the uCustoms system’s physical development as of July 26, 2020 was at 91.9%, compared to the scheduled 96%.

“The National Audit Department only reported that the overall physical development progress of the uCustoms system as of July 26, 2020 was at 91.9%, and not 27.2% as stated by the company’s director in the article,” the department said.
