At long last, on 21-8-2013 Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur, Yg Bhg Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib, has confirmed that DBKL has appointed GTC Global Sdn Bhd to look into the installation and maintenance of 1,200 closed circuit television. Datuk Ahamd Phesal has also confirm the contract is worth RM200 million, HERE.
0n 25-1-2013 yours truly has called upon DBKL to confirm the appointment of that Global-ly known company that has been awarded with the CCTV contract by DBKL. Please read: “Datuk Bandar KL: Which GLOBAL-ly known company has been awarded with the new ITIS Project?”
On 22-2-2013 yours truly again prompted Datuk Bandar KL that GTC Global Sdn Bhd has been awarded with the RM200 million CCTV contract but DBKL still keep silence. A good 6 months later, Yg Bhg Datuk Ahmad Phesal has suddenly broke his silence and confirmed the appointment of GTC Global Sdn Bhd for the said CCTV Project.
Datuk Phesal also said that the CCTVs operation centre at City Hall would be transferred to the Integrated Tansport Information System (ITIS), which in 2005 cost DBKL RM365.74 million. In the Auditor-General Report 2011, the DBKL ITIS Project was highlighted as a failed project with 60% of CCTV not in operation in, HERE.
The Auditor General has made a damning report on the Integrated Transport Information System (ITIS) handled by DBKL in its 2011 Report. The failed ITIS which was operated by DBKL was only festive greetings like displaying “Selamat Hari Raya”, “Selamat Deepavali” and ”Selamat Tahun Baru Cina”. DBKL paid RM365.74 million for it. In other countries ITIS/Visual Message System (VMS) cost much less than what DBKL paid for in 2005. Yet, it was able to gather, share and make available accurate and up-to-date traffic information to road users to help ease the traffic in the city.
No one is certain whether there was an open tender before the award was handed on the silver plater to GTC Global Sdn Bhd. GTC Global Sdn Bhd’s core business is to “install, test, commission and maintain integrated security surveillance systems and broadband solutions”, in HERE.
GTC Global’s key office bearers:
Chairman: Dato’ Hj Ishak bin Hj Mohamad aka Pak Sako. He retired as the Director of Enforcement Immigration of Malaysia.
Chief Executive Officer: En Amiruddin bin Mohamad
Director: Dato’ Mohamad Salim bin Mohd Iran
It is unclear whether RM200 million is for just 1,200 CCTV cameras or the whole ITIS? It will be meaningless if the project is for 1,200 CCTV cameras only. Datuk Ahmad Phesal has said that “the CCTV operation centre at City Hall would be transferred to the Integrated Transport Information System (ITIS) to enable it to monitor all traffic activities and crime prone areas.”
What does a company dealing with Integrated CCTV System know about ITIS?
Assuming for a moment that a CCTV camera cost RM500 each, the total cost is RM600,000.00 only. Lets us be a bit more generous and put it at RM1 million for the total cost of CCTV camera. The remaining RM199 million is left for surveillance system and ITIS, if it is inclusive in the contract. Datuk Bandar KL, wouldn’t you think that RM200 million is far too high? Surely, the existing infra-structure of the existing CCTV system and ITIS could still be used. By the way, the CCTV and ITIS will now cost DBKL a total of RM565.74 million (RM365.74 plus RM200 million)!
There are at least two companies in Malaysia that manufactures VMS. They are Viscon Systems Sdn Bhd and IntraMAS, which has both products or systems that DBKL needs i.e. ITIS and CCTV Surveillance System and yet DBKL preferred GTC Global Sdn Bhd.

so what? cina bodoh. x dpt projek menyalak macam anjing.
The award of this CCCTV contract of RM200 million is fishing. MACC should investigate into it. DBKL never learnt from the last ITIS that has failed badly.
Datuk Phesal kept quiet for many months becos he was finding ways to announce when people has already forgotten about it. GTC Global has no track record or expertise in doing a CCTV system to connect with ITIS. It will have to get another company to do it for them. Just like OEM of products. DBKL is still asleep and thinking that the rakyat are stupid.
I support the suggestion for MACC to investigate into the way this contract was awarded.
Mr lancau lu, you should mind your language. it is ok you not agreed but that kind of language oh my.. macam-macam manusia buat malu sahaja.
RM200 million is scandalous. No wonder it took Datuk Bandar 6 months to announce it and it was not like an announcement at all. It was made to look like a statement made on the way to the pasar malam. MACC need to come in to investigate as simple as that.
Siapa makan cili terasa pedas. Ini bukan soal kaum tetapi satu perkara untuk MACC menyiasat. Tak payah nak guna perkauman untuk menutup mata rakyat. Kita sudah tahu apa yang berlaku. 1,200 CCTV harga kontrak RM200 juta. You got to be joking Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur. CCTV tu buat dengan MAS kah?
No, the CCTV were not made of gold but diamond studded with platinum casing. Datuk Phesal how do you justify the RM200 million for 1,200 CCTV? I heard that a high ranking officer in MOF is also involved in this matter. I fully support the idea of MACC to look into this matter.
Mr lancau.lu please grow up. If you can take defend this CCCTV deal with coherent arguments in YB’s blog then you should just keep quiet. There is no necessity for making derogatory remark. No decent person can defend this scandalous deal.
It is normal for people who cannot articulate to use vulgar words as their defense. Lets forget about such insignificant person. We should try to get to the bottom of how this RM200 million has been awarded to GTC Global. Datuk Bandar must be transparent about the way in which this contract was granted and what does the contract contains. We demand answers from Datuk Bandar.
YB was right to state that during the kick off meeting, the GTC Global rep was unable to answer questions put forward by Dr Leong, the pengarah of Jabatan Pengangkutan of DBKL. No problem. Datuk Bandar says it is ok everything is ok.
Another scandalous deal involving DBKL!
MACC must check on the high ranking officers in DBKL and MOF in this deal. Tan Sri Abu Kassim please send your boys in.
Just wait and see what will happen when MACC do their duties. It will be great to hear awsome paralyse stories.
Whatever the case, MACC should come in to check on this because RM200 million is far too high for 1,200 CCTVs even if they are studded with diamonds! Only Datuk Phesal will be pleased with the RM200 million but not the rakyat.
Datuk Phesal, how on earth 1,200 CCTVs cost RM200 million? The CCTVs from outer space? Is this how you handled our taxpayers money? Stop pretending to be stupid>
Its bad that the government of the day lost a very substantial amount of voters trusts in the last GE13. But this act by the datuk bandar of kl city justs put fuel to the flame. Time for a change from the very most high up the echelon of the government. The fish starts to rot from the head and works its way down the alley. Sheesh , what a shame .
Greeting , YB
this is for lancau.lu ( sya pun orang melayu ) tapi apa yang engkau cakap tu guna kepala lutut , ( yang salah tetap salah tampa mengira agama atau bangsa ) at least we still have somebody dare enough to expose the corrupt malaysian politic
YB , teruskan ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
PM Najib must stop this project before it is too late. Datuk Bandar must not be allowed to do what he likes.
RM200 million for 1,200 CCTVs camera is out order. The Government must stop this deal. It is unacceptable. A full scale investigation by MACC is very necessary.
The real Pak Sako is Ishak Hj Mohmmad a well known nasionalist was detained
by the the British.I thihk you got mix-up.Baca sejarah le bro
This is scandalous. How could DBKL get into this mess again? Datuk Phesal must provide detail explanation on the contract.No one seem to know about this. Why are the people kept in the dark?
GTC CCTV also not functioning loool for KPKT project n Cyberjaya….MACC cant even investigate DBKL n GTC cos…thier VIR room also provided free by GTC hehehehe……ular besar tue pak sakooo sama salim
