Plans To Put Registrar General’s Dept. Online

Allyson Maynard-Gibson

The Attorney General said the Government wanted the Registrar General’s Department to match leading ‘ease of business’ jurisdictions such as Singapore, adding that plans to make key services completely electronic would bring it “into the 21st century”.

While acknowledging that there was “no magic wand to be waved” when it came to enhancing the Registrar General’s efficiency and response time, Allyson Maynard-Gibson said plans to upgrade key services to the private sector were in place and set to be “systematically implemented”.

While Mrs Maynard-Gibson declined to go into specifics, Tribune Business understands the initiative is effectively a resumption of the project she was undertaking when in the Attorney General’s post last time, prior to the 2007 general election.

The goal is 100 per cent computerisation of key services, and getting all records in its databases/archives put online and made electronic.
