Assemblymen have to submit detailed report on projects to state govt

MIRI: Every government-funded development projects for grassroot community must be implemented on time and completed according to the approved schedule, no matter how minor the projects may be.

Any delay will adversely affect Key Performance Index (KPI) of the Barisan Nasional assemblyman behind the project.

Sarawak United Peoples Party (SUPP) secretary-general Datuk Sebastian Ting said all BN assemblymen must give an accurate account of their projects and table their report to the state leadership.

“Every year, a BN assemblyman can seek up to RM5mil for projects in his constituency.

“We can get these funds from the state government under the Rural Transformation Programme.

“The amount to be approved depends on the type of projects.

“Usually they are for community projects like road-repairs, drainage and irrigation upgrading and public amenities infrastructure repairs on public places.

“However, BN assemblymen are now required to give a detailed account of the progress of these projects to the state administration.

“Every projects that we asked for, no matter how small, must be completed on time and the quality must be good.

“If not, our KPI will suffer,” he said.

Ting, who is Piasau state assemblyman, said this when interviewed during his visit to various road repair sites here.

He added that assemblymen must work closely with agencies such as Public Works Department, local councils, Land and Survey Department, Drainage and Irrigation Department and public utilities providers.

Ting said there were 13 minor projects worth RM2.7mil being implemented in Piasau since the state election in May last year.

“For this year, we will have another 22 minor projects to be carried out and some of their costs are being worked out with the contractors,” he said.

Ting said it was essential that inspections were done regularly at project sites so that the progress of the projects and contractors could be closely monitored.
