GOVERNANCE MATTERS ANNUAL NATIONAL PROCUREMENT AND INTEGRITY FORUM

GOVERNANCE MATTERS ANNUAL NATIONAL PROCUREMENT AND INTEGRITY FORUM 2019 Prevention of Procurement Fraud and Corruption in the Public and Private Sectors Integrity and Good Practice in Combatting Procurement Fraud Multi-billion-ringgit Malaysian Government procurement is constantly under the radar and is subjected to public scrutiny. The systems of procuring goods and services and awarding of tenders in the public sector need full-proof and effective framework with well instituted control systems that will generate public confidence in Government spending. The landscape of Corporate Malaysia is in the process of being reformed where bribery and corruption will be eradicated through: 1) The Malaysian Government implementation of a Zero-Based Budgeting System as part of its procurement process in the pursuit of Good Governance Practice. 2) The full implementation of the Corporate Liability Provision under the MACC Act 2018 on its way. 3) The upcoming Government Procurement Act to be tabled in early 2019. 4) The establishment of the National Centre for Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption (GIACC) to coordinate and monitor all activities related to governance, integrity and combatting graft. With all the above in place and fully implemented, the Malaysian economy is vibrant and corrupt-free. In addition, the seriousness that is shown by the new Malaysian Government in cleaning up the government machinery from the dangerous level of corrupt practice will surely reflect in the improved standing of Malaysia in the Transparency International Corruption Perception Index 2018. It is generally recognized, a competitive procurement market based on open tendering is the best guarantee of value for money for government agencies and the public at large, in terms of both price and quality of the goods, services and works procured. Malaysia needs to continue improving the transparency of its procurement system by putting in place more effective measures to address the prevalent loopholes and to remove impediments to reform, which would eventually lead to greater public accountability.
