Goal 2: The public service will have modern, effective and efficient management systems Modernising public management systems is a necessary pre-requisite for development, and it is accomplished through having better people, processes and technology. This underscores the need for public institutions to make a definitive break from old structures and old ways of doing business and take a fresh, innovative approach to achieve better results. Modernisation of the rules and regulatory environment will also serve to improve on effectiveness and efficiency of service delivery. Strategic Initiatives/Actions 2.1 Improving the oversight function of independent institutions A key initiative for this improvement will be enhancing the capacity of the Office of the President in the provision of professional support to undertake independent reviews and analyses of the performance of constitutional bodies. The Service Commissions Department will be strengthened to perform high-level audits and oversight as they continue to delegate authority to Permanent Secretaries and Heads of Department in respect of Human Resource Management (HRM) matters. 2.2 Promote greater accountability within the public service Accountability in the public service will be demonstrated by the adoption of a culture of managing for results and, specifically, through the institutionalisation of an effective performance management system and merit-based promotion. 2.3 Foster greater transparency in public procurement Public procurement will be improved through the amendment and enactment of the new procurement legislation and regulatory framework for government Ministries and Departments, as well as the creation of a new entity for procurement regulation. 2.4 Improve Revenue Administration The Revenue Authority of Trinidad and Tobago will be established to create a platform that can enable reform and modernisation of revenue administration to proceed more quickly and effectively.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
