The Cayman Islands Postal Service and Land Surveying Services and have been reviewed as part of the Government’s Project Future programme, and improvements are on the way. Both agencies fall under the Ministry of Planning, Lands, Agriculture, Housing and Infrastructure, led by Chief Officer Alan Jones. These are the first Project Future Strategic Assessment documents to be approved by Cabinet.
The Strategic Assessment for the Postal Service looks at various options to improve the commercial viability of the Cayman Islands Postal Service and reduce its future reliance on Government subsidies. Whereas the Strategic Assessment for Land Surveying Services provides a short-list of options to improve customer satisfaction and reduce costs related to Land Surveying Services.
The Strategic Assessments pave the way for the short-listed options to be tested in more detail through the creation of Outline Business Cases. The Outline Business Cases will ultimately identify the preferred option, in each case, for implementation.
“Project Future has introduced a new way of working for many staff. It has indeed been challenging, but we are using the strategic assessment and business case process as a tool to challenge our thinking and to really evaluate the quality and efficiency of our work. This process has enabled my team to evaluate all of the options”. Chief Officer Alan Jones, Ministry of PLAH&I
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Planning, Lands, Agriculture, Housing and Infrastructure (PLAHI) has published both Strategic Assessments on its website, with accompanying press releases.
