Tuesday, June 23, 2009 – A report assessing Saint Lucia's readiness to implement its e-Government framework was on Monday, June 22, presented to Minister for the Public Service and Human Resource Development Honourable Lenard Montoute.


The presentation was made by consultant Juanita Poulett, focal point for Small States Network for Economic Development (SSNED). She said Saint Lucia has been commended for its progress and drive in developing the ICT sector.


"The report concluded  the  formation of the e-Government task force in Saint Lucia  is an important step  in keeping the major stakeholders in government  informed of developments  and progress and  also to receive feedback, suggestion and critique on plans, projects, and processes, policies and execution  as the e-Government programme moves forward,”  said the official.


Minister Montoute greeted the report with enthusiasm, noting that its contents will serve to expedite government's Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plans, particularly in regard to the Public Service providing internet coverage to the public.


“This will serve as a useful guide to us in terms of not just telling us where we are in terms of our readiness, but we are going to take very close note of the recommendations in this report. I note from your summary of the report, some recommendations were made in the area of centralizing our ICT unit in the area of setting up new structures for e-government in Saint Lucia,” said the minister.


The framework for the implementation of e-government consists of hardware, software, and data and information, all aimed at delivering the services of government to its multiple constituents.  The report was funded by the Small States Network for Economic Development and the Malta Information Technology Agency, which conducted research in Saint Lucia in order to compile the report.
