Synopsis

“The government ‘s procurement process can no longer be conducted without tenders. This is to ensure corruption and leakages no longer continue”, says Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim on 29th November 2022. The weight, depth and width of this statement will be explored in detail during this presentation.
There were a host of large-scale projects that have undergone scrutiny recently in the mainstream news over the way that their procurement and/or services were carried out. This will be compared and contrasted against the private sector large scale projects that have been carried out and all possible lessons learned will be discussed.

The practiced tendering process that has been in place will be explored in detail, analysed and possible enhancements proposed. The consequences of skipping one or many of the tendering processes will be highlighted with their long-term impacts.

The technical, management and organizational concepts with their respective philosophies will be highlighted, which will be expected to be intertwined with contract management, project management, organizational behaviour and tendering practices, among others. These complex, complicated and intertwined issues and concerns will be discussed against the local and international setting, to highlight best practices.

The presentation will highlight why tendering takes precedence in the overall process and why it should be given a greater emphasis than project management, contract management and contract administration. The shortcomings in the current Malaysian tendering approaches will be examined and possible solutions will be proposed for consideration.

Part of the presentation will also touch on the arbitration processes and practices and how it impacts relationships between all the stakeholders and the contractual parties.
