My 19th question to Zambry – why did Zambry allow PCBD to pay RM14.86M to SDGM subcontractors without any supporting documents?

The special internal audit report on MAPS in section 4.5.5 exposed that supporting documents for the payment on behalf of SDGM by PCBD amounting to RM14.86M could not be sighted during audit.

It is weird enough for PCBD to pay SDGM’s subcontractors, what is even shocking is that the RM14.86M paid to SDGM subcontractors are not supported by any documents. The audit also stated that the payments were made solely based on the list given by SDGM to PCBD.

Why is PCBD liable for SDGM debts? Why is PCBD taking orders from SDGM on who to pay to without any supporting documents? This raised questions of abuse and misappropriation of funds in PCBD.

The audit report also found out that out of the RM14.86M paid to SDGM subcontractors, 4 invoices amounting to RM60.5k were invoices that are already claimed by SDGM in their progress claim.

This is proof that SDGM failed to pay their subcontractors on the works completed even though the works has been claimed by SDGM and fully paid by ATP.
