Ministry of Finance and the Public Service Fiscal Policy Paper 2021 Part 1 | Page 112

The National Water Commission (NWC) is pursuing the development of a 25-year Water Purchase Agreement (WPA) for the financing, construction, operation and maintenance of a 15 MGD8 Water Treatment Plant in Content, St. Catherine.

Schools Energy Efficiency and Solar Project Cabinet approved the final terms of the Energy Savings Contract with the preferred bidder and financial closure for the project is anticipated by the second quarter of financial year 2021/22. The private investor is to undertake the financing, installation and maintenance of photovoltaic generation systems and energy efficiency retrofits in 30 select secondary schools as part of a pilot project. The installation of the panels is expected to commence as soon as financial closure is achieved.

Jamaica Ship Registry The Maritime Authority of Jamaica (MAJ) is to develop the Jamaica Ship Registry (JSR) and its related activities. Cabinet gave approval for the MAJ to proceed to the transaction phase for the management, operation and promotion of the JSR by way of a restricted bidding tender methodology. Judicial Awards Legal claims against the GOJ might have costly and unexpected implications if judgements are made in the favour of plaintiffs. Judicial awards pose a risk to the Government’s fiscal position, as an unplanned increase in expenditure could crowd out planned expenditure, resulting in new revenue measures, or necessitating additional borrowing. The MOFPS collaborates with the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) to monitor the progress of current and pending cases against the GOJ. Close monitoring ensures that proper expenditure planning is executed, and included in the budget should there be a ruling against the Government. Other Specific Risks Wage Settlements The public wage bill can pose a risk to GOJ expenditure in the event that wage settlements exceed budget and/or are not concluded in time for the budget. The Government’s current wage contract will come to an end in March 2021. As such, it is critical that the GOJ completes wage negotiations in order to avoid any settlements contrary to budgeted wage allocations. In the third quarter of FY 2019/20, the Government contracted a consulting firm to undertake a review of public sector compensation in order to determine the way forward. The review has been completed and recommendations have been made. The Government is currently in discussion with the unions.
