We recently reported that the
Korea Expressway Corporation, which has tens of trillions in debt, provided tablet PCs to its employees. However, upon further investigation, we found that the same was true for LH , which had recently been heavily criticized for missing rebar . It was revealed that the company spent over 10 billion won to hand out tablet PCs to employees in the hopes of having paperless meetings .
Reporter Park Chan-beom reported exclusively.
<Reporter> This is a tablet PC
that Korea Land and Housing Corporation LH has been providing 메이저놀이터to all employees for the past three years . A total of 9,900 units were purchased for over 8.6 billion won. Approximately 870,000 won per unit. It is a high-end model that is more than three times more expensive than the models purchased by other public institutions around the same time. One of the purposes of payment is so-called ‘paperless’. The goal is to reduce the amount of paper wasted during each meeting, but how much paper has disappeared from meetings since tablets were provided? An emergency meeting held recently due to the missing rebar in an apartment complex. My desk is full of printed materials. It is not easy to see tablet PCs being used in other meetings as well .
In addition, more than 1,100 units were purchased and stored in warehouses compared to the current number of employees.
[Kang Dae-sik/National Land, Infrastructure and Transport Committee Member (People Power Party): You wonder if you can do that if the money comes from your own pocket. We need to conduct a thorough investigation and take corrective action to save on areas where we can save some budget.]
LH also provided ‘unlimited data communication service’ exclusively for tablet PCs to its employees.
We calculated the amount of data based on 10,000 units, which is more than the actual purchase amount, and spent a total of 6 billion won in communication costs.
LH said that inventory has increased due to large-scale staff reductions, and that the inventory will be paid to 338 new employees this year.
They also explained that providing a dedicated data service was an inevitable measure for security reasons.
As the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced high-intensity innovation against LH, which caused the problem of poorly constructed apartments, it seems necessary to look into whether there is any lax budget spending.
