从《2011年总稽查司报告》 中，我们看到了许多破绽及管理上的疏忽，然而总稽查司报告所揭露的问题没有得到解决方案，反贪会调查的案件属于少数，过程也进行得缓慢，更重要的是缺乏良好防范措施和严谨的管理，导致问题一再地发生。国债逐年不停地在上升，去年更攀升至4千561亿2千万令吉的历史新高，占了国内生产总值的51.77%.。这样的情况若继续下去，国家可能会入不敷出而宣布破产，我们不希望成为下一个欧猪四国，政府是时候反省了！到了 2020年，马来西亚将成为先进的的破产国家或破产的先进国？

The financial management of government agencies for 2011 recorded a better performance compared with 2010, which showed that the IA has motivated the civil servants to be initiative in taking measures to improve the financial management, said Auditor-General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang. The National Audit Department has evaluated all government departments and agencies, 111 (31.4%) of them are rated as “very good” (4 star). Has the financial management of the government really enhanced? Do cases of malpractice and corruption reduced?
Although the financial management of the government for 2011 has recorded a significant improvement, unthinkable abuses are still emerging. However, the financial management of government agencies are defective and some old problems keep happening. For instance, administration of government building, usage of tools, contracts and so on. Why are the same problems repeating? The government seems not to think highly of them and a lot of civil servants just make it easy. As time goes by, majority of the so-called cases with solid evidence are left unsolved and old troubles fall into the same rut. What we need is a transparent, organized and systematic way of supervision. A thorough reformation is needed! Officers who continue wasting the country resources are ought to be dealt according to law! A reasonable explanation must be made to the people!
Penang fiscal surplus in 2011 hit the highest ever which is RM 1.3831 billion, 312.4% higher than in 2010. The federal and other state government should learn from the Penang government in efforts of cutting down debts, financial management in a more transparent and effective way as well as to put a stop to corruption and wasting of resources. For example, the Penang state government has applied the open tender system which enables the government to gain services and goods with better quality, if compared to closed negotiation. The country leaders should make their personal assets so that the people could supervise their performance and avoid abuse of power.
From the 2011 Auditor-General’s Report, a great number of weaknesses and mismanagement are obvious, yet problems disclosed in the report are not provided with solutions, cases investigated by the SPR are just the minority, and in a very slow progress and more importantly, lack of strict supervision which cause same issues recurring. National debts are increasing year by year and even hit a record high of RM 4.561 hundred billion that is 51.77% of the GDP. If such condition persists, the country might have had to declare bankruptcy as a result of it having a large mouth but small girdle. Time for introspection! We would never want to be like the P.I.G.S! Upon 2020, would Malaysia be an advanced bankrupt country or a bankrupt advanced one?
