KUALA LUMPUR: The Master Builders Association Malaysia (MBAM) is urging the government to regulate the number of contractors as a means of qualifying parties who are tendering.
Its president, Ng Kee Leen, said by regulating and qualifying contractors, this would help ensure quality delivery from capable and committed contractors who are financially strong, technically qualified and in possession of the right manpower and sufficient equipment.
Besides that, it would help to ensure projects tendered are completed in a timely manner without sacrificing the quality of work, he said in a statement here on April 2.
There are many contractors in the country but only a small percentage of them are actually actively running construction businesses, he said.
Ng said the launching of MyProcurement portal showed the government's commitment to fight corruption and in the long run help boost public and market confidence.
In another statement on the same day, the Malay Contractors Association of Malaysia (PKMM) said it would support the government's efforts to dispel any public perception of corruption in the procurement of government jobs.
Its president, Datuk Haji Mokhtar Samad said the condition now which makes it compulsory for all successful bidders to sign an agreement will prevent incidents of corruption in government job procurement.Besides that, the announcements and tender results now regularly updated at the websites by government officers will also make it easier for bidders, he said. -- Bernama
