KUALA LUMPUR — April 2, 2015: The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will introduce a report card detailing its progress from 2013 till now.

Details about this will not be tabled in parliament but instead announced at a press conference next week.

According to PAC chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan, the report card will be listing PAC’s recommendations on issues affecting the government that were discussed at its meetings.

It will also highlight the status of the recommendations and whether action has been taken to rectify problems.

“Disciplinary action taken against those responsible will also be included in the card,” said Nur Jazlan today.

However, when asked on the possibility of being biased in their assessment, he assured that this will not occur as the committee is made up of both government and opposition parliamentarians.

“This will be a truly independent report card because unlike the government’s internal report card, ours will be available for public consumption,” said Nur Jazlan, adding that the public will then be able to judge if the PAC has been transparent or not.
