The road maintenance contract under the Malaysian Road Records Information System (Marris) in Perak was awarded to a company without an open tender, said Menteri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu.
He said the decision was made by mutual consent of all state executive councillors after finding that the company would be able to provide the services needed.
"Of the many suggestions we received and the briefings given to the exco members, eventually we agreed to award the project to the company," he said after launching the state-level World Sight Day at the Sungai Siput Hospital today.
Ahmad Faizal was commenting on corruption allegations by Bersatu member Syed Razif Syed Rabii over the road maintenance contract under Marris in Perak. - Bernama
