KUALA LUMPUR (March 30): The Home Ministry on Wednesday (March 30) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU) and eight contracts with local companies, worth RM2.596 billion.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin said the signing of the MoU and contracts showed the government’s commitment to placing national security as its main agenda.

“This is especially in procurement planning, to ensure that the country's security assets are always in a high level of readiness. It proves that the government has always given priority to internal security,” he told reporters witnessing the signing ceremony, held in conjunction with the Defence Services Asia and National Security Asia 2022 exhibitions.

The MoU and contracts were signed between Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Dahlan Abdul Aziz and MAMPU director-general Datuk Seri Dr Yusof Ismail, as well as representatives of the local companies.

Hamzah said out of the eight contracts, the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) was involved in three contracts worth RM249 million, the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) in one contract worth RM124 million, and the Immigration Department in four contracts worth RM2.22 billion.

Among the high-impact contracts are the procurement of X-Band Satellite Equipment for PDRM, the Sea Surveillance System (SWASLA) upgrading project for MMEA and the National Integrated Immigration System (NIISe) project for the Immigration Department.
