Malaysia: Need for a public procurement law

06 Feb 19: With the recent call for the enactment of a public procurement law, it is time for Malaysia to seriously consider such an enactment. The sum spent on such procurement is large, therefore the need for transparency and integrity to be incorporated into the process of procurement. Many countries have, during the start of the 21st century, enacted laws, or amended laws with respect to public procurement to prevent fraud, waste, corruption or protectionism and cronyism.
