A member of the public has mailed hard copies of the following letter
to CPIB and the Auditor-General’s Office, asking the two Government
agencies to investigate any irregularities arising from last year’s sale
of the Town Councils’ computer and financial system to AIM Pte Ltd.
In the letter, the member of the public brings up a number of
questions. He asks if the tender exercise is similar to the one in the
scandalous NParks’ Brompton bicycle case.
He also asks if it was in the best interest of the public for the
Town Councils to sell the system to a private company and then to rent
Another issue is the $140,000 price tag – the price paid by AIM for
the system. Was it fair? Also, why did the Town Councils accept the bid
from a $2-company, AIM?
