KUCHING: State agencies have been told to quickly prepare the Organisational Anti-Corruption Plan (OACP) so that the Corruption Risk Management Plan (CRM) can be implemented as soon as possible.

OACP is a fundamental anti-corruption document at the organisational level to curb weaknesses and issues regarding governance, integrity and anti-corruption within an organisation.

Urban Development and Resource Ministry permanent secretary Datuk Zaidi Mahdi said, “The CRM will be a proactive tool for all agencies to investigate corruption among civil servants.”

He spoke before officiating at the launch of the Natural Resources and Environment (NREB) Integrity and Innovation Day on Monday.

He further stressed that every civil servant must carry out their duty professionally to ensure there would be no room for corruption practice.

“Upholding integrity means being honest, trustworthy and possessing high virtues, especially in managing financial account of the organisation,” he said.

Zaidi stressed that staff must view integrity and innovation as ways to improve an organisation’s operations and services.

“In order to achieve a first-class service, civil servants must think outside the box,” he said. 

Zaidi added that civil servants must carry out their duty professionally to ensure there would be no room for corrupt practices.

“Upholding integrity means being honest, trustworthy and possessing high virtues, especially in managing financial account of the organisation,” he said.
