PAD launches ICT system

A new information, communication and technological (ICT) system has been launched that is expected to speed up decision-making in the public service and improve productivity.

The Personnel Administration Division this morning introduced its correspondence management system (CMS), which was set in motion by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC).

Stuart, who is also responsible for the Civil Service, said the CMS would have implications for the wider public sector.

“Once successfully implemented, this technology can be utilized by other agencies to address their records and information management issues which are currently affecting productivity and the speed of our decision-making,” he said.

The Prime Minister also said the adoption of the CMS throughout the public service would not only save money, but it would also foster greater collaboration among Government agencies in relation to the sharing of ICT infrastructure.

    This all depends on the willingness of the workers to both learn how to use the system and to actually use it.

    this is basicly a paperless office system promised by ibm since the 1960’s. correspondence will be sent electronicaly either by email or being scanned and the files will be electronic instead of paper. this weill reduce the time of moving an actual file and also allow more than one person to work using the file at the same time.

    A brave start, indeed..right from the very fount of action….though it joins several other expedient, and hopeful, more noted for their proximity to General Elections, than to reality. There will be pigs flying scheduled round-trips to Mars, for that delectable Martian ice-cream… before this is fully and sucessfully implemented in.P.A.D.. In short order thereafter, it will be fully, totally, and very, very sucessfully established throughout every other government department and S.O.E. There might even be a new law outlawing the use of printer-paper, except in toilets. Hmmm…by that time, we might be better off using the new BB$million-dollar notes, as an economical substitute.
    Yes, all in good time…definitely just before we have The Bigger Splash, in 2066..
