Education Ministry’s weak tender system ..wasted RM2.052bil on sub-standard security services from 2010 to 2012, with some contractors saying the weaknesses had given rise to allegations of kickbacks.
“The MOE can be the biggest cash cow for those interested in making money because they have assets everywhere,” he said, adding that the contractors needed inside connections to get the jobs.
Kickbacks would have to be given to those giving out the contracts and the agent, said the contractor. Each would receive 2.5% of kickbacks from the total worth of the contract.
“If you get a contract worth RM100,000 in one zone you will have to give RM5,000 in kickbacks or commissions every month. There is no way you can get a contract otherwise,” he claimed.
