Auditor-General says dept has enough staff to undertake tasks well

KOTA BHARU (Dec 21): The estimated 2,000 staff of the National Audit Department is adequate for the department to undertake its tasks well, Auditor-General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang said on Tuesday.

The department would undertake auditing in accordance with preference and would not rush into completing its work, he said to reporters after taking delivery of the Wisma Audit in Kelantan from the Public Works Department.

JKR General Buildings Works Branch director Yyuri Muji (rpt) Yyuri Muji handed over the relevant documents for the RM18-million building to Ambrin.

Ambrin said each state would have its own Wisma Audit by the end of the 10th Malaysia Plan period (2011-2015) at the latest.

He said Kelantan was the fourth state to have the building this year, after Negeri Sembilan, Selangor and Melaka.

The question of delay in putting up the buildings in several other states did not arise because the JKR had ensured that the projects would not be abandoned and any delay was due to other factors, he said.

In his speech, Ambrin said the Kelantan building, which houses about 80 officers and staff, provided a conducive atmosphere for work and relations with clients. — Bernama
