6亿拨款须在6周花光


统滥用公款力挽基层

译新闻:原文连接今年政府特别拨出3百万令吉的终花红给每个国会选区,条件只有两项:必须在6周内花光、拨款只供土著承包商。这些F级承包商已接获指南,告知他们如何在6周内耗尽这笔在第9马计划底下额外拨出的6亿令吉。

今年1113日,首相阿都拉在巫统全国代表大会上宣布,供乡区发展的15亿令吉拨款已经用完,因此另外拨出6亿令吉的款项。阿都拉作出宣布不久后,公共工程局底下的合约与材料测量部发出一份长达3页的文件-“2006乡区计划落实指南概念书Guidelines for Implementation Programme of Rural Projects 2006 Concept Paper),该指南表示,工程部将负责确保计划在2006年里进行并完成

消息指该指南已经分发给各承包商。可惠及3000名土著承包商

该文件表示,除了砂拉越之外,其他所有191个国会选区获分配约3百万令吉的款项。文件也规定,所进行的计划必须少于20万令吉,并在今年以内完成,而且个承包商不得获分配超过一项计划。如果这项指南获得遵守,意味着每个国会议席将有至少15名承包商受惠,全国总数约3000名。

文件表示,公共工程局的县工程师和县官员必须确认并决定欲进行的小型计划。可以进行的计划包括提升公路、兴建新路、为政府建筑物包括学校和回教堂进行装修、油漆、修理水沟、安装水管和电气设备。成功获得计划的土著承包商必须在3天内动工,当局将在明年1缴付工程费用。

刘天球已报案指拨款遭滥用动党非政府组织局主任刘天球前往警局保案,指上述拨款遭滥用来资助巫统区部领袖所获得的工程计划。

他表示,上述拨款并没有获得国会或内阁的通过,却是一项政党决定,以力挽基层对巫统领导层的支持。前首相马哈迪数月来对阿都拉的批评,已经削弱巫统领导层的威望,更导致该党面临一定的分裂。阿都拉是在本月进行的巫统全国代表大会里,宣布这项6亿令吉的拨款。

刘天球的报案证据是一封与阿都拉的宣布相同日期,由副工程部长莫哈末再因签署的函件。该函件通知公共工程局关于该笔拨款,并指示该局加速落实该拨款的使用。 该函件也将砂拉越排除在外,刘天球表示,排除砂州之后,受惠的国会选区只剩191个,与巫统全国区部的总数相同。多数的巫统区部领袖可以动符合资格获得只供土著申请的F级承包商执照,担任党职的人士可以优先取得F级承包商,这个已经是一项公开的秘密

How to spend RM600 million in 6 weeks

Each parliamentary constituency has been given a year-end ‘bonus’ of RM3 million. Only two rules apply – they need to spend it in six weeks and the money is only for bumiputera contractors. These Class-F contractors have been issued with guidelines on how they can spend the additional RM600 million allocated under the Ninth Malaysia Plan in a rather short period – six weeks.On Nov 13, Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced that the additional RM600 million was to top up the RM1.5 billion disbursed for rural development, which he claimed had already ran dry.A three-page document – ‘Guidelines for Implementation Programme of Rural Projects 2006 Concept Paper’ – was released soon after the announcement, prepared by the Public Works Department (JKR) Contract and Material Surveying Division.“The Works Department has been tasked with ensuring the implementation of the programme which must be undertaken and completed in 2006,” read the document.Sources claimed that the guidelines was distributed to a number of contractors after the premier’s announcement.

According to the document, it was estimated that RM3 million would be distributed to each parliamentary constituency except for those in
Sarawak. This means that 191 constituencies will benefit from the year-end ‘bonus’.
The projects must be worth no more than RM200,000 and be completed by the end of this year, stated the document.

No contractor can take up more than one project under this programme. Should all RM600 million be spent, each parliamentary constituency would see at least 15 contractors being hired bringing the total to around 3,000 contractors nationwide.

Payment in JanuaryThe document stated that JKR district engineers and district officers must first identify and decide on the small projects and minor renovation works to be undertaken.

Among the projects that can be performed, said the document, are the upgrading roads, building new roads, renovating or painting government buildings which include schools and mosques, building and fixing drains, pipe installations and electrical works.

Successful bumiputera contractors must start work within three days after being awarded the project. They can expect payment by the end of January 2007 after the project is completed.

On Monday, DAP NGO bureau chief Ronnie Liu lodged a police report alleging that public funds were being used to finance the programme which would inadvertently fall into the hands of Umno divisional leaders.He claimed that the spending spree was neither approved by Parliament or the cabinet. Instead, he said the funds came from a party decision, aimed at bolstering support for the fragile Umno leadership.

Abdullah made the RM600 million fund announcement on the eve of the annual Umno general assembly early this month.

The crux of Liu’s argument was a letter – dated on the same day of the annoucement – by Deputy Works Minister Mohd Zin Mohamed informing JKR of the RM600 million fund and instructing the department to expedite the programme.

Since
Sarawak is left out, Liu said this only leaves 191 parliamentary constituencies which tallies with the number of Umno divisions in the country.

The majority of Umno division leaders “automatically qualify” for Class-F contractor licences, which are exclusively for bumiputeras. It is an open secret that party office bearers are given priority for the Class-F licences.



Bagaimana membelanjakan RM600 juta

dalam 6 minggu

Saiz Huruf:

Setiap kawasan Parlimen di Semenanjung dan Sabah menerima ‘bonus’ hujung tahun sebanyak RM3 juta untuk dibelanjakan dalam masa enam minggu dan peruntukan itu hanyalah untuk kontraktor bumiputera.Kontraktor kelas F ini telah diberi garispanduan mengenai bagaimana hendak membelanjakan tambahan RM600 juta yang diperuntukan di bawah Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (RMK9) dalam tempoh tersebut.

Pada 13 November, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi mengumumkan peruntukan itu sebagai tambahan kepada RM1.5 bilion bagi melaksanakan projek kecil luar bandar.Dokumen tiga muka
surat itu disediakan oleh Jabatan Kontrak dan ukur Bahan, Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR) yang bertajuk ‘Kertas Konsep Tatacara Pelaksanaan Program Projek Luar Bandar Tahun 2006’.

Menurut dokumen tersebut, JKR telah ditugaskan untuk memastikan pelaksanaakn program tersebut yang mesti dijalan dan disiapkan dalam tahun 2006.

Sumber-sumber mendakwa, garispanduan tersebut telah diedarkan kepada sesetengah kontraktor selepas pengumuman perdana menteri tempoh hari.

Menurut dokumen itu, kecuali Sarawak, kesemua kawasa Parlimen di Semenanjung dan
Sabah, yang berjumlah 191, masing-masing dianggarkan menerima agihan RM3 juta di bawah program tersebut.

Setiap projek mesti bernilai tidak melebihi RM200,000 dan disiapkan dalam tempoh dua bulan, kata dokumen itu lagi.

Jenis projek terbabit, antaranya ialah menyelenggara jalan, membina jalan/dataran kejat, membaiki dan mengecat bangunan kerajaan, termasuk kuarters, masjid, dewan, sekolah, balai polis, membina dan membaiki parit dan longkang, memasang paip dan memasang pandawaian elektrik dalam bangunan.Kontraktor terbabit tidak dibenarkan menerima lebih daripada satu projek. Jika kesemua RM600 juta dibelanjakan, maka sekurang-kurang 15 kontraktor dari setiap kawasan Parlimen terbabit, berpeluang menerima projek tersebut, atau 2,865 kontraktor semuanya.

Bayaran Januari

Menurut dokumen itu lagi, jurutera daerah dan pegawai daerah hendaklah mengenalpasti dan menyetujui kerja-kerja kecil dan pembaikan yang tidak mengubah struktur asal untuk dilaksanakan melalui program ini.

Manakala kontraktor yang berjaya dikehendaki memulakan kerja-kerja dalam tempoh tiga hari selepas mendapat projek. Mereka dijangka menerima bayaran pada akhir bulan Januari 2007, iaitu selepas projek disiapkan.

Isnin lalu, Pengerusi NGO DAP, Ronnie Liu membuat laporan polis, mendakwa wang rakyat digunakan untuk membiayai program tersebut, yang akhirnya ‘jatuh’ ke tangan pemimpin Umno di peringkat bahagian.Beliau mendakwa, peruntukan tersebut tidak diluluskan sama ada oleh Parlimen atau Kabinet. Sebaliknya, Liu mendakwa, ia diluluskan oleh pemimpin parti dan merupakan ‘wang politik’ bertujuan untuk meningkatkan sokongan.

Laporan Liu juga dibuat berasarkan kepada
surat Timbalan Menteri Kerja Raya, Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed yang mengarahkan JKR supaya mempercepatkan pelaksanaan program tersebut.

Menurutnya, jumlah 191 kawasan Parlimen yang menerima agihan peruntukan tersebut, adalah sama dengan jumlah bahagian Umno di Semenanjung dan
Sabah. Terdapat 222 kawasan Parlimen di Malaysia dan 31 daripadanya adalah di
Sarawak.

Majoriti pemimpin Umno bahagian merupakan pemegang lesen kontraktor kelas F yang khusus diberikan kepada bumiputera.

    We have yet to see any Malay or English papers care to report about the scandal until today. What’s the role of these media anyway? They continue to print only news their political masters want you to read. The Sun has been an exception for many cases but they too are refraining from reporting the scandal (they did send a reporter to cover the police report).

    Allah is all- knowing.Pak-Lah and Umno will be punished.God will sustained your courage to continue expose every evil deed of Pak Lah,when even the so call Mukmin failed in their duty to Allah by remaining silent.It is God’s will that you succeed as the devine hand is revealed.
