PUTRAJAYA: The Finance Ministry set the ceiling price of RM196 mil to acquire MySejahtera, but the contract has not been signed yet, says Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.
He said that it is not true that RM196 mil has already been paid to the MySJ Sdn Bhd as that is only the ceiling price and not the price the ministry and the private developer of the app had agreed on.
"We have not paid RM196mil for MySejahtera. The contract has not been signed and is still in the final stages. That RM196 mil is the ceiling price set by the Finance Ministry,” said Khairy.
He added that the ceiling price was set after it was studied by functional point analysis by Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (Mampu).
Khairy said that Mampu studied the functions from the users' point of view, market survey, checks by the National Cyber Security Agency and the usage projection by the Health Ministry.
“These factors have been taken into account before setting the ceiling price," added Khairy.
He was speaking to the media after launching the new Health Ministry open data website KKMNow.com at the ministry on Wednesday (Oct 5).
In November 2021, the Cabinet reportedly gave the green light to MySJ to take over the app from KPISoft through direct negotiations.
