Kota Kinabalu: More than 1,200 residents will benefit from the RM2 million maintenance project of federal quarters in the State, said Sabah Federal Secretary Datuk Samsuni Mohd Nor (pic).

“In Sabah, we have 10 quarters with 501 units in Kota Kinabalu, Tawau, Sandakan, Kudat and Keningau which cater to more than 1,200 federal public servants,” he said after witnessing the presentation of Letters of Acceptance to appointed contractors at his office, here, Monday.

“However, the quarters are only provided to qualified public servants based on grade requirement.”

The maintenance works will include the upgrading of wiring and electrical system as well as emphasis on dilapidated residences in three focus districts – Keningau, Kudat and Kota Kinabalu.

“For the eight packages for the three districts, eight contractors had been appointed where works had begun and will be completed by November, involving a cost of RM1.95 million.

“Another two packages are now in the final evaluation process to select contractors,” he said.

He added that the works will be divided between two implementers – Sabah Federal Office and Public Works Department (PWD) Project II Team.

“There are five packages under the Sabah Federal Office, valued at RM1.12 million, while the other three packages, worth RM441 million, are given to the PWD Project II Team.”

Meanwhile, he urged the appointed contractors to be responsible and complete the projects on time.

“Through close cooperation, we will coordinate both implementing agencies and hope they will meet the deadline.

“The contractors should also be thankful as they were selected from hundreds of applicants…as such, they must have integrity and show quality work,” he said.

Sabah received the additional RM2 million allocation under the Prihatin Economic Stimulus Package announced by the Prime Minister, on March 27.

Also present were Senior Civil Engineer Patrick Basun and State Development Office Deputy Director Mohd Hamdani Sahari.
