The Committee had requested for an update from various ministries on measures taken to improve public sector procurement practices.

SINGAPORE: Singapore's Minister of State for Finance, Josephine Teo has said that the government will need to consider additional revenue sources as it copes with an ageing population and a rise in social spending. She was speaking during the Committee of Supply debate for the Finance Ministry. Mrs Teo also announced further measures to up the pay of low-wage workers and enhance procurement processes within the public sector. Several Members of Parliament (MPs) expressed concerns about Singapore's fiscal sustainability during the Budget debate. Nominated MP Tan Su Shan said: "The government has given out handouts, subsidies and top-ups to the welfare assistance scheme to meet this higher cost of living but, if the inflation we are creating becomes structural, how long more can we keep giving these handouts? As our population ages, the need for more healthcare and social subsidies will also rise. We cannot take our nation's fiscal sustainability for granted." Mrs Teo said it is the changes made over the past five years to enhance revenues through changes to the Net Investment Returns framework and raise the Goods and Service Tax that has given Singapore the fiscal space to make significant investments in infrastructure and social spending. "We have to use taxpayers' monies carefully, to make sure our expenditure gets the best value, and our programmes are both effective and efficient. This is why, despite keeping social spending relatively low, our social outcomes are not inferior to many countries by most international reckonings." For instance, Singapore's spending per capita on primary school education is about S$7,000 - much lower than the US which spends about S$9,400. "Similarly, our spending per capita on secondary school education is also lower than in the US. Yet most international assessments place our school system as amongst the best internationally, and well above that of the US, based on outcomes for students of all abilities," said Mrs Teo. And while providing broad-based support to give all Singaporeans the chance to achieve their aspirations, social spending is directed at Singaporeans who need the most help. For instance, Mrs Teo said the Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) scheme is targeted at older low-wage workers, to encourage them to stay in employment. And in healthcare, the government aims to support both lower and middle-income Singaporeans. What's important, said Mrs Teo, is to maintain a tax regime that's fair, equitable and able to sustain Singapore's economic dynamism. The public sector is also hoping to lead the way in efforts to raise the pay of low-wage workers. From April, the government will engage only accredited cleaning companies, under the National Environment Agency's Enhanced Clean Mark Accreditation Scheme. What this means is that Singaporean cleaners on government contracts will be paid according to the Progressive Wage Model - a system described as a component of Singapore's own Minimum Wage model. Mrs Teo said the Education Ministry, which is the government's single largest buyer of cleaning services, has taken the lead, with all its contractors on board. "Effectively, this means about half of all cleaners employed under government contracts, or over 3,500 cleaners, now receive basic wages of at least S$1,000 per month. Further, with training, improved skills and bigger job scopes, the cleaners can earn more," she said. Next month, the initiative will cover the security sector - where the government will procure only from agencies graded by the police. Separately, in its continuing effort to enhance procurement processes within public sector agencies, the government is developing a Procurement Specialist Track for its officers. Mrs Teo said: "There are over 2,000 officers across the Public Service today who perform procurement roles as part of their job responsibilities. However, not all agencies have dedicated procurement teams. In some agencies, procurement could be decentralised to many different officers for whom procurement is a secondary role. It is also likely viewed as an administrative support function, rather than as a profession. As a result, there are uneven standards of procurement capabilities across the public service." The Procurement Specialist Track will offer officers proper career pathways and equip them with skills to be discerning when evaluating bids. The Finance Ministry is also working with various agencies to identify opportunities to cluster their procurement functions, where feasible. This is so that capabilities are more centralised. It will also open up more career options for procurement officers. ☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺ Content had been truncated due to text limit, pls visit below link for full content: Subject: Govt needs to explore new revenue sources to cope with ageing population www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/singaporelocalnews/view/1259243/1/.html

SINGAPORE: The government is placing more emphasis on supervision and top-level oversight as it seeks to strengthen procurement systems within the public service. Speaking in Parliament on Monday, Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam noted that the public sector's procurement needs will grow and become more diverse over the years. Permanent secretaries and heads of government agencies have been reminded to maintain active oversight of internal audit. They are now required to report to the Ministry of Finance, with an assessment of findings on procurement audits and follow-up actions in their agencies, each year. They must also lay down pre-emptive plans to avoid future weaknesses. This will include follow-up on audit observations by both internal auditors within the government agency and the Auditor-General. Mr Tharman, who is also Minister for Finance, emphasised that the system of checks and balances in procurement operates as a whole. He said it is not just about rules to ensure fair competition and value for money in public tenders, but also regular audits to detect lapses, and where appropriate, disciplinary actions against those responsible, including supervisors. Mr Tharman's remarks follow yet another high-profile case of financial lapse - this time, involving a former assistant director at the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau, who was charged with misappropriation and forgery. Edwin Yeo Seow Hiong, 39, is accused of misappropriation, totalling more than $1.7 million. This year's Auditor-General Office (AGO) report also cited procurement lapses in some government agencies. Mr Tharman stressed that the lapses cited in the report are all due to non-compliance with established rules, rather than gaps in the rules. He added that most of the findings also concern lapses committed before 2012 - that is, before the government introduced stricter procurement rules. As a whole, Mr Tharman said Singapore's system is working, which is why the country is recognised internationally as having one of the cleanest and most efficient systems of government anywhere. Despite this, Mr Tharman said the government reviews its rules regularly. He added that it's crucial that the top management sets the right tone. Addressing questions about the AGO's audit process, Mr Tharman said the office conducts annual checks of Ministries. On a less regular basis, the AGO also selectively audits other aspects of internal controls in the Ministries. The AGO conducts audits of internal controls of nearly all statutory boards at least once every five years. Mr Tharman said the AGO's resources have been significantly enhanced - its manpower has grown by over 50 per cent over the last five years. He added that the AGO's audits are for practical reasons conducted on a test-check basis, and it cannot realistically cover all aspects of procurement in all agencies. But from time to time, he said, the government does conduct thorough, one-off reviews of specific aspects of procurement across the public sector. For example, before the government tightened procedures in 2012 for handling single bids, it reviewed the procurement transaction data for the entire public sector. In the past two years, 60 officers and supervisors have been counselled, reprimanded or issued with warning letters for administrative or procedural lapses. Where warranted, Mr Tharman said officers were penalised in their performance bonuses or increments. www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/more-emphasis-on/774046.html

SINGAPORE: The Auditor-General has observed in his latest annual report that procurement in the public sector continues to be prone to lapses. He noted that while efforts had been made to enhance procurement rules over the last few years, some entities were not sufficiently diligent in ensuring compliance. The Auditor-General's report scrutinising the government ministries and statutory boards on their procedures and expenditure in the last financial year was released on Wednesday. It cited several ministries for various oversights, among them was the Ministry of Defence (Mindef). The Auditor-General's Office said that Mindef has exercised inadequate oversight over a project undertaken by SAFRA to enhance fitness corners. According to the report, Mindef had given approval for 50 fitness corners to be enhanced, but SAFRA exceeded the number by 58. Another example was the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). The Auditor-General's Office found weaknesses in how SCDF managed gift vouchers worth S$500,000 a year. In many instances, the serial numbers of vouchers were not recorded nor were their issuance acknowledged. These are just two examples of lapses highlighted by the report, which grouped the lapses into five categories. These are: monitoring of the performance of contractors, oversight of projects managed by external consultants, procurement, managing stocks and stores, and managing computer access controls. Checks by the Auditor-General's Office on the Housing and Development Board's (HDB) management of six carpark-enforcement contracts revealed that it was lax in monitoring service providers' performance. The Auditor-General found there were no record of patrols being carried out for 664 of the nearly 7,000 scheduled patrols stated in the service providers' roster. Turning to the Media Development Authority (MDA), the Auditor-General's Office said in some instances, the agency did not uphold government procurement principles of transparency, open and fair competition, and value for money. It is concerned these irregularities could be perceived as MDA being biased towards certain vendors. For example, while three vendors submitted proposals to appoint an event organiser for the film festival, negotiations were carried out with a vendor which submitted the highest bid after the tender had closed. MDA has informed the Auditor-General's Office that it has since implemented some measures to enhance its procurement process. Among them are the formation of a dedicated procurement unit, compulsory training for procurement staff and the sharing of procurement case studies. The poor maintenance of government resorts managed by the Public Service Division (PSD) was also highlighted by the Auditor-General. In 2010, PSD awarded a S$13m contract over four years for the resorts' maintenance. Inspecting the chalets, the Auditor-General's Office found dirty or damaged furniture and appliances, and insect hives. It wants the PSD to ensure the resorts are properly maintained. The PSD says it can improve on this. In the case of the Singapore Land Authority (SLA), the Auditor-General's Office inspected 42 vacant lands and 11 vacant properties. It found five land sites to have illegal dumps or water receptacles while another 13 land sites and properties had tall grass. Nine properties were potential mosquito-breeding or harbouring sites. In his report, the Auditor-General also emphasised that the irregularities and weaknesses do not necessarily reflect the general state of administration in the agencies audited. Rather, the observations serve as pointers to areas for improvement in the use and management of public funds. Responding to the Auditor-General's report, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) says many of the procurement lapses stemmed not from the lack of robust procurement rules but from the failure of individual officers to follow them. The ministry says it has reminded all permanent secretaries and heads of government agencies to pay close attention to procurement issues. MOF says that to further strengthen government procurement as a whole, it has already stepped up the training of public officers, as well as required all agencies to conduct regular internal audits to provide an independent check. Work is in progress to develop a Procurement Specialist Track, with professional development opportunities and proper career pathways. The Procurement Specialist Track will help professionalise the practice of procurement by giving officers greater recognition and more opportunities to develop deep skills and knowledge. While it cannot expect to be able to completely eliminate lapses in a system with over 80,000 tenders and quotations annually, the public service is committed to take every effort to avoid them or promptly rectify them when they are detected. www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/govt-agencies-procurement/747582.html

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ E-procurement (electronic procurement, sometimes also known as supplier exchange) is the business-to-business or business-to-consumer or business-to-government purchase and sale of supplies, work, and services through the Internet as well as other information and networking systems, such as electronic data interchange and enterprise resource planning. The e-procurement value chain consists of indent management, e-Informing, e-Tendering, e-Auctioning, vendor management, catalogue management, Purchase Order Integration, Order Status, Ship Notice, e-invoicing, e-payment, and contract management. Indent management is the workflow involved in the preparation of tenders. This part of the value chain is optional, with individual procuring departments defining their indenting process. In works procurement, administrative approval and technical sanction are obtained in electronic format. In goods procurement, indent generation activity is done online. The end result of the stage is taken as inputs for issuing the NIT. Elements of e-procurement include request for information, request for proposal, request for quotation, RFx (the previous three together), and eRFx (software for managing RFx projects). E-procurement in the public sector is emerging internationally. Hence, initiatives have been implemented in Ukraine, India, Singapore, Estonia, United Kingdom, United States, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, European Union, Rwanda added by TOMMY Youn. Public sector organizations use e-procurement for contracts to achieve benefits such as increased efficiency and cost savings (faster and cheaper) in government procurement and improved transparency (to reduce corruption) in procurement services. E-procurement in the public sector has seen rapid growth in recent years. Act 590 of Louisiana's 2008 Regular Legislative Session requires political subdivisions to make provisions for the receipt of electronic bids. E-procurement projects are often part of the country’s larger e-Government efforts to better serve its citizens and businesses in the digital economy. For example, Singapore’s GeBIZ was implemented as one of the programmes under its e-Government masterplan. The Procurement G6 leads the use of e-procurement instruments in Public procurement. One more example of successful incredible reform is shown by Ukraine Prozorro. It is a result of collaboration between Ukrainian government, business sector, and civil society. This system was developed by reputable international anti-corruption organization Transparency International Ukraine with a help of volunteers, NGOs, business community and state bodies of Ukraine, the WNISEF fund, the EBRD and other partners. This field is populated by two types of vendors: big enterprise resource planning (ERP) providers which offer e-procurement as one of their services, and the more affordable services focused specifically of e-procurement. Implementing an e Procurement system benefits all levels of an organisation. E Procurement systems offer improved spend visibility and control and help finance officers match purchases with purchase orders, receipts and job tickets. An e-procurement system also manages tenders through a web site. This can be accessed anywhere globally and has greatly improved the accessibility of tenders. An example is the System for Acquisition Management (SAM), which on July 30, 2013 combined information from the former Central Contractor Registration and Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA), in the United States.

Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen responded to parliamentary questions on MINDEF's procurement processes from Dr Lim Wee Kiak. He reiterated that MINDEF's procurement systems are robust and comprehensive. Minister Ng challenged Singapore's poor rating in Transparency International's Government Defence Anti-Corruption Index, pointing out that the underlying assumptions are invalid due to a lack of credible information as well as inadequate understanding of Singapore's Government system and processes.

SINGAPORE: Singapore's ministries are stepping up on measures to strengthen procurement processes. They include calling open tenders or quotations for additional works so as to avoid potential conflict of interest. These were revealed as the Public Accounts Committee released its second report on Friday. The Committee had requested for an update from various ministries on measures taken to improve public sector procurement practices. The Ministry of Finance, which is centrally responsible for government procurement policies, is looking into curbing the splitting of purchases. Split purchases have the effect of bypassing government procurement rules as they apply to those of higher value. To ensure that purchases have not been unnecessarily split, the ministry has developed a checklist for approving authorities and launched a business intelligence tool that allows agencies to identify split purchases. The Finance Ministry is looking into setting up a repository of rates which government agencies could use to compare so that "star rate" items will be procured at fair market prices. An item is labelled "star rate" when it is not listed in the contract. The ministry is also developing a yearly online test for key officers to assess them on procurement principles and value. It is also working with the Civil Service College to develop training materials which could be incorporated into career development programmes. Circulars have also been sent to Permanent Secretaries to set "the tone at the top" on the importance of adherence to rules and accountability. The Finance Ministry has also enhanced the system of alerts to the central accounting system used by Vital, a department of the ministry that provides centralised payment and payroll processing services to Ministries and Organs of State. This comes after the Auditor General found 12 cases of duplicate payments amounting to $18,634,209. The Home Affairs Ministry is also working on raising the competency level of procurement officers to plug lapses, including irregularities in two projects which caused the Singapore Police Force to be grossly overcharged. A new central procurement entity will also be set up within the Home Affairs Ministry to carry out all tenders exceeding $70,000 for its departments. Chair of the Public Accounts Committee Cedric Foo said the committee is encouraged by the measures taken by the ministries, but feels more can still be done in the area of accountability. He said contractors and officers who are proven to have caused lapses should be held accountable. As the steward of public funds, he said the Civil Service must ensure that public money is well spent and procurement processes are fair and transparent. www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/ministries-step-up-measures-to-strengthe/636554.html
