“The audit will be done by the State Treasurer and also a state internal audit because that is the procedure and the procedure is carried out like the National Audit Department.

“We have made an agreement of understanding with the MACC in order to ensure that state administrative procedures are done properly and orderly.

“Sometimes, the MACC will join the state audit in conducting research that aims to help the state in determining that the state government’s on-going efforts can reduce corruption and abuse of power,” said Abdul Khalid during a press conference after chairing the Executive Councillors meeting at the State Government Secretary’s Building today.
