MASS Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) conducted a balloting exercise to select Bumiputera contractors for 44 work packages for the Klang Valley MRT Project Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line on 30 January 2013. The contracts were for Bumiputera contractors belonging to Class G1 (formerly Class F), Class G2 (class D) and Class G3 (Class E).
The contractors were selected from a list of 550 contractors which had been shortlisted from around 1,300 companies which applied last year. Successful companies will undergo a training programme before commencing work.
The contracts are part of the Government’s target of achieving 43% participation of Bumiputera contractors in the MRT project.
