The restructuring of the Community Development Department (KEMAS) on 19 January 2015 led to the rebranding of the Development and Planning Division to the Development Division.
The Development Division is responsible for planning, coordinating and monitoring development provisions. In addition, this division is also responsible for planning the physical projects of KEMAS for a period of five years and annual projects suitable with the needs of the target groups.
In 2015, this division was involved in various activities, among others monitoring the implementation of the fourth Rolling Plan project (RP4) for the 10th Malaysia Plan (2014 – 2015) as well as providing the overall achievement information of the Tenth Malaysia Plan programme/ project (10MP) as 2015 was the final year of the programme/ project implementation for the 10MP period. In addition, in the same year, this division also made preparations for the programme/ project planning that was intended to be implemented within the Eleventh Malaysia Plan (11MP) beginning 2016 until 2020.
This division was broken down into two (2) units:
- Resource Planning and Management Unit
- Project Development and Management Unit
