SECTION 2: TERMS OF REFERENCE
The Government of Jamaica (GOJ) outlined a policy for Public Sector Transformation including the
establishment of the Public Sector Transformation Implementation Unit (TIU) in January 2017 to spearhead
implementation. The vision of a transformed public sector is a modern public service that is fair, values
people, and delivers high quality services consistently.
years and aims to address quality, cost, and efficiency of public services in Jamaica. The programme is
being executed by the Office of the Prime Minister and has two main components: (1) Enhancing Quality
of Public Services; and (2) Enhancing Efficiency in Public Spending.
The programme focuses on five critical areas of service delivery in the first phase. These include: (i) the
introduction of shared corporate services (SCS) in eight operational areas; (ii) wage bill management to
reduce the wage bill to GDP ratio to nine percent; (iii) human resource management (HRM) transformation;
(iv) public sector efficiency and ICT; and (v) rationalisation of public bodies.
The challenges to be addressed are: (i) the underutilization of Information and Communication
Technologies (ICT) across the public sector; (ii) cumbersome processes to access public services; (iii) a
relatively large and expensive workforce; (iv) too many public bodies in existence and lack of adherence
to the accountability framework; and (v) limited capacity to implement public sector reform initiatives.
