Keeping an eye on the MCMC

The MCMC recently called for a new tender for supply and distribution of the 1Malaysia notebook. If I am not wrong, that was the fourth time such a tender was opened to potential contractors.

Its a good move by the Commission and Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture in feeding the public, especially those in the rural areas with state-of-the-art IT facility.

However, it depends solely on the access either set up by Telekom Malaysia or providers like Celcom, Maxis or DiGi.

I dont want to discuss the connectivity issue here. My concern is how bidders for the Phase 4 contract be selected via a transparent procedure that will hinder those with 'internal connection' with MCMC bosses and the ministry from securing the biggest chunk of it.

More than a year ago, I posted a series of stories about how a Special Officer secured almost one third of the number of notebook for distribution under six different companies.

The MACC conducted an investigation and confirmed his part in the deal, which made him a millionaire overnight.

However, despite strong evidence, the investigation stopped abruptly and the officer in charge was transfered to another task. I believe there was a cover up and that Special Officer who got a Datukship last year, is now 'inside' the MCMC.

Cronyism is at its worst, it seems, not only at MCMC but everywhere. Nevertheless, I am glad that the contract of the few senior officials will end soon, hoping for a more honest people to take over from them.

Yes, with some contacts within, I will dig into the Commission to find out any irregularity to the contract award, and if I get the proof, I swear that those people involved will shit in their pant!

To the MACC, you better execute them this time or I will take you to task for walking around with your big mouth but small balls!

Bro,

Cronyism seems unavoidable, its getting rampant.

When qualified bidders have to compete among themselves, those with connections find it easy to get the job.

Mcmc is of no exceptance!

Jai,

Sprm ni tak boleh harap sgt.

Bila ada desakan dan tekanan politik, diorang pun takut gak.

Aku yakin kes kau ni mmg kuat tapi diorang tak berapa berani ambil tindakan jika ia membabitkan kepentingan politik seseorang.

Pokoknya, sampai bila sprm akan termaktub dlm lingkaran seperti ini?

Now u know why we cant trust the macc. They are just like the police. They will go after the small fish while those big guns and prominent politicians are let off the hook.

And they expect the public to cooperate with them...!

Sucks!

Sharil, idris and nazri form a formidable team...strong enough to over ride the minister. Are u aware of it?

I think all public and private sectors tender should be reviewed and scrutinized by an independent body or committee.

This would avoid any bias decision in awarding the projects.

It wll also put to nought any attempt of corruption

Alaaaaaa.

Mcm mana pun, mesti tangan2 dari dalam yg akan membantu pembida yg dikenali.

Sebab tu kita mesti tukar kerajaan ni!

Salute your bravery. Nobody wants to fight these issues. But perhaps better not upset the system, puts yourself in jeopardy with small chance of achieving anything

Yes, the contract of these corrupted officers might not be reviewed. However, where is the justice when they escape with their ill gotten gains if there are no punishment or conviction by MACC. In Malaysia, it is always the case when things get too hot due to screwing up or corruption, these special people will be asked to leave, but after a few months/years they will be given a much bigger position/portfolio to continue with their schemes.

Dear sir. That datuk NA is almost confirmed to be a candidate in my area this GE13. Already, peoples are showered with free netbooks, under the name of mcmc. They even had this 'concert' with 15 well known artists, also under the name of mcmc. Although these are somehow, good for the people. I dont think the government/people money should be abused like that. I hope you can talk to the opposition party, to revealed his wrongdoings. I dont want such person to be in power, especially in my hometown.
