My ninth question to Zambry – why were RM12M paid to SDGM even though supporting documents could not be sighted?

The special internal audit report on MAPS section 4.2.2 stated that there were instances where payment was made to SDGM even though supporting document could not be sighted.

A total of RM12M were paid to SDGM for 9 progress claims without any supporting documents. This shows that there is a breakdown of the control process in making payment to SDGM.

It is also stated in the special internal audit report that the physical sighting of the construction for the RM12M progress claims could not be sighted.

I urge Zambry to explain how RM12M can be paid to SDGM without any supporting documents. The approval of these payments to SDGM is a total disregard of the control process. Making payments without any supporting document will expose ATP to potential fraud claims by SDGM.

Zambry must explain the control mechanism set in place for the total RM413M payments to SDGM and whether all these control process were followed to ensure that all payments made were genuine payments.
