Posted on 03 May 2013

Expected date of completion pushed back just because.

The review on the sale of software by PAP town councils to PAP-owned company Action Information Management (AIM) has once again been extended.

The Ministry of National Development (MND), which is conducting the review in the interest of transparency in January — following accusatory exchanges between the Workers’ Party (WP) and PAP town councils and AIM — had said that it was extending the review by a month at the start of April after the public perceived them to be taking their own sweet time.

However, April came and went, and then nothing.

But New Nation now understands that the deadline has again been pushed back and the review is targeted to be completed by GE2016.

One source who is familiar with the review but declined to be named said: “The software in 14 PAP town councils was sold to AIM — the sole bidder — in a tender conducted in 2010. It was chop chop curry pok.”

“Obviously not everything can be carried out as quickly as that. Certainly not this review.”
