Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (MRT Corp) organised a briefing in conjunction with its Request for Information (RFI) exercise for the proposed MRT3 Circle Line Project on 19 April 2021.
The session, which was attended by over 100 people representing 60 construction companies, was held at TPC Kuala Lumpur.
The session saw MRT3 Circle Line Project Director Tuan Haji Mohd Yusof Kasiron give the overall presentation on the MRT3 Project. He shared some basic information about the Project, such as the alignment length which will be about 50 kilometres with 30 stations, including 10 interchange stations.
He also mentioned that the MRT3 Project will include programmes for urban regeneration, improvement of local capabilities, human capital development and construction manufacturing,
This was followed by Chief Commercial Officer Encik Azwa Abdul Aziz presenting on the requirements of the RFI exercise itself, including the submission process, deadline, and others.
Head of Internal Audit Encik Muhammad Sree Abdullah finished off with a short note on MRT Corp’s anti-bribery policy and stressed on the importance for all participating companies to adhere strictly to MRT Corp’s position on Anti-Fraud and Anti-Corruption Policy, No Gift Policy and Whistleblowing Policy.
A question-and-answer session then took place after the presentations. Responding to one of the queries raised, Yusof said the RFI was not only aimed at getting players of the construction industry to provide information about their companies to MRT Corp, but also help the participating companies to be ready for the tender exercise expected to be called during the second half of the year.
As for the nature of the contract or the project management model to be adopted, he indicated that the options were open to all possibilities.
The briefing session lasted for approximately one hour.
