KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 29 — An MP pointed today to the high salaries of contract staff in the federal government as an example of profligacy, citing as examples how senior appointments were paid as much as RM69,000 a month while a Performance Management & Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) director can command RM49,000.
Serdang MP Ong Kian Ming said such high wages — more than that of the Chief Secretary — had contributed to the 13 per cent increase in the budget for the prime minister’s department.
“In a parliamentary reply I received on the 1st of October, I was informed that the yearly salary, allowance and the bonus of the CEO of Agensi Inovasi Malaysia (AIM) was RM830,500 which works out to approximately a monthly salary of RM69,000,” said Ong in a statement here.
He said the government had also revealed that the CEO of the Land Transport Commission was paid RM40,000 a month, a yearly allowance of RM162,000 and a bonus of RM60,000**.
The CEO of TalentCorp, according to him, receives a monthly salary of RM30,000 and a monthly car allowance of RM5,000.
“All these CEOs are paid monthly salaries which are higher than the monthly salary of the highest paid civil servant which is the Chief Secretary which has a maximum monthly salary of RM23,577,” he added.
In addition to that, staff in Prime Minister’s Department agencies—who are mostly on contract—are also paid higher than their civil servant equivalents.
“For example, a director at PEMANDU — which is equivalent to a JUSA A/B civil servant — has a maximum salary of RM49,000 a month, an associate director at PEMANDU — equivalent to a JUSA C civil servant — has a maximum salary of RM31,600 a month while a senior manager — equivalent to a Grade 54 civil servant — has a maximum salary of RM21,000 a month,” he explained.
Other agencies under the department include the Iskandar Regional Development Authority, the East Coast Economic Region Development Council, the Northern Corridor Implementation Authority, the Malaysian Industry Government Group for High Technology, and the Unit Peneraju Agenda Bumiputera.
Ong also called on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to stop creating new agencies such as Yayasan Hijau and the Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Center which overlaps with some other existing agencies such as the Sustainable Energy Development Authority, AIM and the Malaysian Productivity Council.
The allocation for the Prime Minister’s Department has ballooned by 13 per cent from last year, compared to the 1.5 per cent increase of total budget from RM250 billion to RM264 billion.

My comments : They say if you pay peanuts you will get monkeys. The issue here is if you pay the monkeys pistacchio nuts will they be any less monkeys? They will still be monkeys.
Malaysia is now safely on its way to the Club of Doom. At this rate the gomen is going to go bust. There will not be any more money left over to pay even the real Civil Servants salaries.
How much economic growth has all this spending generated? How much new wealth has been created in the economy. The economic growth forecasts have been reduced, not increased.
Despite the PM's Department throwing so much of our taxpayers money down the drain.
Talentcorp CEO paid RM30,000 per month? For doing what? Talentcorp has become a car AP agency. They offer Malaysians who left the country for "greener pastures" overseas two APs to bring in two cars duty free. They also offer these 'greener pasture' Malaysians a minimum 15% income tax bracket.
Why do you reward people who could not cut it inside Malaysia and left the country? And they are returning back to Malaysia because the grass is now turning brown overseas. The grass in Malaysia is now turning greener for them.
Why? Because there are millions of people like us who stayed behind in Malaysia and worked hard for this country. We never left our country for greener pastures overseas. Bukan tak boleh pun. But we decided to stay behind and build our own country.
And for doing this the stupid gomen rewards those who left the country with two APs and a 15% tax bracket !!
There is no bottom to how stupid this gomen can become. Just when you thought they had hit the bottom they can dig a hole and sink further to the bottom.
