Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad announced that the Federal Government will impose conditions which will limit direct tenders to only exceptional cases.

He said government agencies must give an explanation why is there direct negotiation and must get an approval first from the Finance Ministry.

He said this after chairing the 10th Special Cabinet Committee on Anti-Corruption (JKKMAR) on Thursday.
