KUALA LUMPUR: The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) is expected to call six ministries to facilitate further investigation on the various issues raised in the Auditor-General's Report 2011.
Its deputy chairman, Dr Tan Seng Giaw, said the ministries involved were the Health Ministry, Defence Ministry, Housing and Local Government Ministry, Finance Ministry, Transport Ministry and Works Ministry.
"Our initial investigation found several weaknesses, such as concerning some medicines and pharmacies under the Health Ministry and the double-tracking project under the Transport Ministry," he told a press conference after chairing the PAC meeting at the Parliament here today.
Dr Tan said the weakness in coordination between government departments and agencies in receiving and executing orders from the top management was among the factors that created the problems in the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) project.
"For example, if the Finance Ministry decided on something, then all departments must know about it.
"However, in some cases, the information doesn't reach them. It means something will go wrong. So, they have to look into it.
"I think you should emphasize on the need to reveal the procedures how the decision is made in the Ministry Finance can reach all the department," he said.
Dr Tan, however, said several matters concerning the investigation could not be announced to public as the PAC was subjected to the Parliamentary Standing Order.
