The Transport Department has suspended MVA Hong Kong from bidding for its minor engineering consultancy contracts for two months.
In a reply today to media inquiries, the department said MVA failed to observe the contract terms for the Traffic Impact Assessment for Proposed Development near Junction of Lung Cheung Road & Lion Rock Tunnel Road.
MVA used the Planning Department’s population and employment data, obtained through government consultancy work, in non-government development projects.
The department has reported the suspension to the Engineering & Associated Consultants Selection Board for other government departments’ reference when assessing tenders.
During the suspension period, MVA has to improve its use of clients’ information.
Its remedial information control measures will be assessed by an independent audit company to ensure they are effective.
