The size and scope of the transformation programme requires a central facilitation team to bridge together disparate units of government, provide a link to the private sector and present a platform to resolve issues that arise throughout implementation.
The programme will be driven by the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), a division of PEMANDU. ETP will function as a standalone division with dedicated full-time staff, accountable to PEMANDU's Chief Executive Officer.
The ETP's mandate will require its involvement across many aspects of performance delivery. Its primary role includes architecting the ETP and resolving issues that arise in implementation, mobilising investment by bringing parties together and raising the pressure to perform to accelerate delivery. Additionally, the ETP will continue to monitor progress of the Entry Point Projects (EPPs) and ensure accountability on both the project owner as well as supporting government institutions.
"Finally, the unit will be responsible for regular and transparent reporting across NKEAs and the overall ETP"
ETP will form strong linkages and a partnership with the Economic Planning Unit (EPU), to ensure alignment on the allocation and disbursement of funding for the programme, which includes direct funding for EPPs as well as for the enablers. The EPU will also ensure that the funding requirements of the ETP will be incorporated in the two-year rolling plans, and eventually, the Eleventh Malaysia Plan.
