BDA gets strict for better image
BINTULU: The grass cutting contractors and their supervisors-in-charge here yesterday have been reminded to improve and upgrade the quality of their works to the standard required by their employer, Bintulu Development Authority (BDA).
“This is my early warning to those contractors who are given contract by BDA-take your responsibility and duty diligently,” said its general manager Mohidin Ishak to the contractors when speaking during the handing over of contracts to selected contractors at BDA library auditorium yesterday.
He said those contractors that showed a higher standard of quality in their works would be rewarded with better or more contracts in the future.
Mohidin added that those not showing any good work, were non-performing and not trying to improve their work quality, would be given stern action by BDA.
“Please do your job accordingly and you’ll get rewards for it and don’t let us deduct your points due to your bad job,” warned Mohidin.
Twenty-six contractors were selected and given their contracts yesterday which entitle them to works like grass-cutting and drain-cleaning in 34 zones.
Jobs will be valid for a year.
According to Mohidin, BDA spent about RM3.5 million for these contracts which he described as the ‘highest expenditure prepared for the people’.
“BDA is spending this much money to create comfortable environment and good living condition to the people,” he remarked.
Mohidin also called on management and supervisors to play their role well because many times contractors failed to do a good job because supervision was week.
“Let us work together for the sake of our town and to make Bintulu a nice place to live in,” he said, adding that BDA would ensure that jobs well done would get their payments promptly and in good time.
BDA’s acting deputy general manager Shukarmin Chasemon who also spoke talked at length about workd quality standard in line with Bintulu’s vision of becoming a city 10 years from now.
He also called on the public to SMS him at 013-8362277 should they have complaints to make or if there are things they are dissatisfied with in regard to drains, open spaces and streets.
Also present at the function were BDA senior managers (environment section) Awang Ali Awg Amin and Manis Mohidi.
