KUALA LUMPUR, April 8 (Bernama) -- The feasibility of the proposed corporatisation of the Public Works Department (JKR) is still at an early stage of the preliminary study.
JKR said in a statement today that the study would cover the development aspect and capacity simulation implementation based on various internal and external factors, long-term impact and scenario to ensure that the results of the study and the recommendations would be organised, transparent as well as give the best benefit to the government.
“It is JKR’s aim to ensure the study will benefit all its stakeholders, especially JKR members, industry players, the people and country,” it said.
It also noted that the need to protect the interest of JKR members and civil servants was enshrined in the Service Circular 6/2000, which clarified that any corporatisation had to ensure that the new terms and services package was not less favourable than that offered in the civil service.
“If the study finds the main factor cannot be fulfilled, the proposal will not proceed,” JKR said in response to the corporatisation issue which had gone viral on social media.-- BERNAMA
