Slackness of civil servants will be targeted in the Public Accounts Committee report released today, chairman Eric Li Ka-cheung says. But he said criticism would be levelled at overall government management rather than individuals. 'As in the past, we will employ words like 'strongly condemn'. But we will target particular ranks rather than particular persons in the civil service,' he said. The committee is reporting on the auditor's report of government finances published in November. It is understood those criticised include bureau and department heads. Although the administration had given some extra information to members, Mr Li said it had not supplied everything requested. Another committee member said words such as 'dismay', 'astonished' and 'very concerned' had been used. The integrity of some officials is questioned. 'As in the purchase of the BMWs, we are not convinced that only the supplier of BMWs qualified for the specifications of the award. We believed that the specifications have been tailor-made for it as the opinion of the users was added in the specifications for the second tender.' The Government spent about $12 million (HK$152 million) on 20 BMW 735iLs and BMW 750iLs in 1997 to replace Toyotas used before. This is believed to be about $5.4 million more than Mazdas would have cost. Some committee members said they were unhappy the Government had not provided documents to explain why BMWs had been bought. Reports will be released later on two other controversial topics - sewage scheme delays, and a legal blunder that allowed building owners to renege on agreements to build footbridges. Mr Li said his committee would conduct hearings on the bridges and might call property developers as witnesses.
