PROJECTS of the Quality Control Circle (KKC) must be monitored continuously to ensure their relevance to the work environment, the acting surveyor general said.

Speaking at the Survey Department’s KKC Convention yesterday, Dr Hjh Mas Suriaia Wati Hj Abd Hamid urged participants to continue their projects in improving work quality and efficiency at their respective agencies.

“All the projects should continue to be carried out so that what have been implemented and achieved through KKC is not just for the sake of competition,” she said in her opening speech.

She added that monitoring and examination of the projects from time to time is also crucial in keeping their relevance to produce an effective work culture.

Dr Hjh Mas Suriaia Wati also lauded the department’s success in being awarded with the Civil Service Institute’s (IPA) ‘Special KKC Awards’ in 2015, 2014 and 2012.

“However, we should not be complacent with such success as we still (need to improve) delivering creative solution and ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking,” said the officer.

In the event, three KKC groups were named winners out of the eight teams from the Survey Department that presented their projects.

The best team was PGS15/16 of the GIS Mapping Section, which tackled the problems of delays in constructing maps faced by the section.

Hjh Fatimah Hj Bahir, head officer at the section, said that she was grateful for the group’s achievement.

“My team and I will take into account the feedback from the judges so we can improve ourselves and hopefully win the KKC convention all the way to the national level,” said Hjh Fatimah.

She noted that that the previous team from the section won last year’s National KKC Convention.

The TOCAD group from the Cadastre Section came in second with their project, which deals with recurring problems of inconsistency in plan specifications.

Dr Hjh Mas Suriaia Wati, also the guest of honour, presented prizes to the winners and tokens of appreciation to the panel of judges. Also in attendance was Acting Deputy Surveyor General Arefin Hj Jaya, along with other senior officers and personnel.
