The National Award for the Management Accounting (NAfMA) Best Practice 2004 is the first of its kind in the Asian region. For a start, NAfMA 2004 is open to Malaysian Multi-national and Public-Listed Companies (PLC). As Malaysia strives to become fully industrialized, it is believed that embracing best practices in management accounting will ensure that businesses are using the appropriate tools and techniques to achieve optimum business performance, resulting in value creation. Through the spirit of sharing best
practices and benchmarking amongst with other organisations it will also
enable companies in Malaysia to move towards world-class recognition. The
NAfMA Best Practice is assessed on the basis of the management accounting
best practice conceptual framework proposed by the International Federation
of Accountants (IFAC). The participating companies were assessed on criteria,
which include management accounting information, leadership, resource
management, customer/market focus, partnership management, value creating,
business results/performance measurement and corporate social responsibility.
These criteria were finalized after numerous discussions between several
parties involved. An independent panel of assessors made a second site visit
to those short-listed companies. Recommendations resulting from a team of
independent assessors were then put to the panel of judges before the recipients
were decided.
