An open tender for one unit of photocopier

The above is an advertisement placed by the the Marsa Local Council, Malta where even a purchase of one unit of photocopier is subject to an open tender.  What's more if it involves multi billion ringgit worth of procurement or projects like in Malaysia.  Don't you think an open tender is even more imperative to demonstrate transparency and nip corruption at its bud.

The advertisement is illustrative of the openness which provides little prospects of rigging or messing around with the procurement process.  There is no such thing as closed or negotiated tenders and every bid is scrutinised by the authorities.  Any slight deviation means nothing short of being sent to prison.

Will UMNO be able to follow suit?
