The Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS) will be a guide to all departments and agencies under the Human Resources Ministry (KSM) to strengthen governance and identify the risk of corruption and misuse of power.
Its minister Steven Sim Chee Keong said the initiative is now used at the Skills Development Fund Corporation (PTPK), and the move is implemented with the cooperation of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (Niosh).
“Implementing ABMS is a proactive measure to ensure PTPK staff abide by the work ethics and show a high level of commitment to eradicate corruption in the civil service.
“The objective is also in line with the framework of Malaysia Madani, which prioritises integrity and efficiency in public administration,” he said in a statement today.
ABMS’s development was spurred by PTPK’s excellent performance, which recorded a moderate level of risk through the risk re-rating by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for 2023.
In addition, Sim said that PTPK, as the main financier of national skills training, remains committed to enhancing Malaysia’s human capital development agenda, especially in technical and vocational education and training (TVET), by providing funding to encourage the community to pursue skills.PTPK is constantly aware of and highly committed to ensuring Malaysians enjoy the best services and be a catalyst for change in the 12th Malaysia Plan to improve the TVET ecosystem to develop existing talent.
