2.3 Managing Facilities

All facilities are under Jabatan Belia dan Masyarakat responsibilities. Engineering Department covered the maintenance of the facilities. If any problem comes, the workers that duty at the facilities will report to the both department to take any action. No continuous maintenance for all facilities under MPAJ. Maintenance job will be done if they receive any report.

2.4 Facilities Planning

MPAJ master plan was not good because resident at that area had already live there before MPAJ was established. So, they cannot adjust to much the residential area to build proper facilities because it takes so much risk like the house, road and many more. That is what happened to the sport facilities they built. They just can build at the empty space only. For example the tennis court beside the highway in front of Tesco has been change to be futsal court. It was not suitable for user safety and health. The facilities also not enough to handle too many user at one time.

At every facility, MPAJ has put the rule and regulation to the people who want to use the facilities. For example:-

i) If people want to use the facilities, they need to apply to MPAJ at the counter OSC at

level 4 by using Borang Tempahan Dewan.

ii) To use the facilities they need to get the approval from Pegawai Penilaian and

Pengurusan Harta first.

iii)The application should be send 2 month before the date they want to use.

2.5 Event Planning

MPAJ also make an event for the public. For example football clinic, taekwondo tournament, futsal tournament, hiking and DUN Cempaka sport community. This event was good for the new generation which is get them to know the important of sport and also bring them to achieve to the higher level. Below was the example of article that the MPAJ has advertised:


TARIKH : Bermula 15 Januari 2008

HARI : Setiap Hari Khamis sepanjang tahun 2008

MASA : 4.00 petang sehingga 6.00 petang

TEMPAT : Padang AU 2, Taman Keramat.

PESERTA : 30 orang.

AKTIVITI : Asas Bola Sepak / Dribling / Taktikal / Teknikal





Tarikh : 23 – 25 Mei 2007

Masa : 8.00 pagi

Tempat : Dewan Dato’ Ahmad Razali

Peserta : 100 orang.




2.6 Financial Planning

Every facilities that used need to pay to the MPAJ.


Above was the example of payment and amount of each facilities that have been provided by the MPAJ. From our view, eventhough the users need to pay if they want to use the facilities, the facilities still not well maintained. Most of the public facilities are damage and can cause injuries to the users.

2.7 Risk Management

No proper maintenance for the facilities, so, it provide dangerous and can cause injury to the users. For example, futsal court at Kg. Pandan. Most of the facilities don’t have proper safety such as guard. Besides that, there’s no emergency plan except at Dewan Dato’ Ahmad Razali.
