MOHR Implements Reforms Following Audit Findings On HRD Corp

The Ministry of Human Resources is taking the reports by the National Audit Department (JAN) and the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), presented in Parliament on July 4, 2024, very seriously. The audits examined HRD Corp’s operations from 2019 to 2023.

In a note today (July 5), Minister of Human Resources Steven Sim Chee Keong said that upon assuming the ministerial portfolio in mid-December 2023, he was informed about the audit processes by both bodies.

He promptly directed KESUMA and HRD CORP (PSMB) to fully cooperate with JAN and PAC.

In line with the recommendations from the Auditor General, Sim instructed KESUMA’s Chief Secretary, Datuk Sri Khairul Dzaimee, and HRD CORP’s Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Wira Shahul Dawood, to report the findings to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Over the past six months, KESUMA has initiated a reengineering process across the ministry to ensure good governance and efficient processes throughout the Ministry and its agencies. Minister Sim’s goal is to ensure that KESUMA achieves the highest standards of governance and corporate governance.

The reengineering of KESUMA at the HRD CORP level has been implemented to ensure that the issues raised in the JAN and PAC reports do not recur.

KESUMA has no objections if any relevant agency wishes to conduct further investigations. The ministry will not compromise on actions that violate the law.
