Matters Arising                                                 

Security Services                                                            

The security services’ performance for April 2020 dropped to 5.7/10. Overall performance was not satisfactory as the security personnel did not receive their salaries since January 2020. This has affected their performance and attendance significantly.

MonthSep 19Oct 19Nov 19Dec 19Jan 20Feb 20Mar 20Apr 20

In view of the delayed salaries due to the security personnel, we wrote to the security company to resolve this problem on several occasions however, it was not resolved. To prevent the security personnel from walking out of Mawar Apts, we have no choice but to provide petty cash to them and we also paid their January 2020 salaries. These reimbursements will be deducted from the security services invoice accordingly.

Based on the poor performance of the present security services, Building Manager obtained quotes from 5 security services providers and they are tabled as below :-
