The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairman Wong Kah Woh, in a statement today, said the committee will perform its duties to safeguard national interest concerning the procurement of the Covid-19 vaccines.
He assured the PAC will balance its role of carrying out legislative scrutiny while adhering to the terms of the vaccine deals and non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) to ensure there is no breach of agreement.
“We are aware of the NDA signed between the government and vaccine distributors.
“But generally, NDAs should not deter PAC from executing its role and duties,” he said.
