MCMC: Stop wasting public fund with public relation exercise

Following my questions posed to Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture, the Deputy Minsiter YB Datuk Joseph Sallang Gandum has informed Parliament as follows (just got the exact names of the company involved in the netbook computers fiasco): Continue reading “MCMC: Stop wasting public fund with public relation exercise”

Only 123,000 units of netbook computers were given out

YB Datuk Joseph Sallang Gandum, the Deputy Minister of Ministry of Information, Multimedia & Culture, Culture informed Parliament in his reply as follows:

First phase 8 companies were involved in the supplying of 123,000 units of notebook computers. The 8 companies were appointed by way direct negotiation! The names of the 8 comapnies (names not very clear, will amend later) are as follows: Mutiara S…, Nalius Av …, Acer, Lenovo, Samsung International, Megas …, Hidaya Construction, Mega Trade …, Hydrianate …

The Deputy Minister also said

– no son of the Minister or the officer was involved in these companies;

– the total balance of the USP Fund as at 31-12-2010 was ABOUT RM4.5 billion(when pressed for the current total of the USP as at today, the Deputy Minister was unable to provide and he promised to give me a written reply about it);

–  the amount of money given under the USP Fund for each notebook was less than RM1,000 per unit but he copuld not give a definite figure;

–  the remaining 200,000 units of notebook have not been finalsied and it will be by way of open tender.

When I asked him why the Audit Committee of MCMC has not met for almost a year? There was no reply from the Deputy Minsiter.  there are many other questions which have not been answered.  I shall persue it during Committee Stage.

USP the “Cash Cow”! Left with RM400 million!

I am shocked to have read in Rockybru and the NST’s report that the latest balance in the USP Fund is only RM400 million! The Deputy Minister of Information, Multimedia and Culture YB Datuk Salang Gandum on 25-10-2010 said here that no USP Fund had been spent. one of them must be lying. The Deputy Minister or the NST. We will soon find out when the Ministry of Information, Multimedia and Culture reply this coming week to the questions posed by me during the Budget debate last week. If it is true that only RM400 million is left in the USP Fund then it will be a very serious matter then MACC must come move in to investigate.  In year 2008 the balance in the USP Fund was RM4.67 billion!
