In one, the report said that the contract price stated in the agreement amounting to €33.35 million (RM166 million) differed from the itemised contract price which amounted to €32.47 million (RM160 million) with a difference of €0.88 million (RM4.4 million).

The contract done through a direct negotiation with Galaxy Helicopters (M) Sdn Bhd is for three years, between July 2015 and June 2018.

In another procurement, the AG report pointed out that the Certificate of Final Acceptance Test was issued although there was non-compliance of contract specifications.

The police was given the approval to purchase two AW 139s for the air operations force, mainly to carry out crime prevention operations, public order survey and provide operational support.

The A-G Report released today is the first series for the year 2016.
