Cancelling direct negotiation mega projects more cost effective, transparent

CANCELLING directly negotiated mega projects under Budget 2023 will help the government save costs and avoid paying commissions to middlemen, Malaysian Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (Macfe) president, Akhbar Satar said.

He said government procurement must be open, transparent, be based on good governance and not involve any unnecessary waste of public funds and legal breaches associated with direct negotiations.
