FIM Governance and Integrity Centre


Vision 2020 “Malaysia is to be a fully developed country, with a confident society, infused with strong moral and ethical values, living in a society that is democratic, liberal and tolerant, caring, economically just and equitable, progressive and prosperous and in full possession of an economy that is competitive, dynamic, robust and resilient.”

To achieve Vision 2020, the government has embarked amongst others, the New Economic Model, the 10th Malaysia Plan (2011-2015), and the Government Transformation Program.
Changes are being made to the government’s systems and machineries to address issues and problems which are related to economic, social performance and the delivery of public services.
Issues of Governance and Ethics are important to engineers as well as to management. This is because engineers, as the middle
management decision makers, should not only be concerned about the process and the quality of final output of their product, but they also need to be particular about how the company is doing in terms of dollars and cents, morality and law.
Issues of over-run cost of production or pilferages and the effect of production to the environment and human capital are near to the concepts of audit, governance of ethics and integrity. 
This also is to mean that although innovation and technology is the trust, engineers should also incorporate human values into this environment.
The ethical action of managers directly affects the ethical direction and health of organizations. Understanding of ethical values could provide a basis for altering managerial behaviour.
