Government today (Thursday, 13 May 2021) published a new organisational chart which outlines the restructuring which followed the 14 April General Election.
Available from the Government website the chart reflects the new ministries that were announced following the election, detailing senior leadership and the assorted core civil service agencies, statutory authorities, as well as government companies, boards and committees that report to Cabinet via the new ministers.
Premier, Hon. Wayne Panton explained that the new structure will help Government manage the breadth of subject areas for which each ministry is responsible more effectively.
“Members of my team all made commitments to our constituents during the election that we are committed to meeting. All of the policy areas across the Government have an important role to play in our ability to deliver on our promises to the Cayman Islands.
“I believe the new structure best reflects an approach that will allow us to ensure that all of the policy areas across the Government will benefit from an increased emphasis and focus for the benefit of our people.”
“Moving policy areas from the previous larger Ministry structure into separate, dedicated Ministries, will allow us to increase the focus on high priority areas such as health, labour, sustainability, and education, and I am very pleased to report that we are already working hard to make positive things happen”, Mr Panton commented.
Deputy Governor and Head of the Civil Service Mr Franz Manderson remarked: “The goal of the civil service is to provide the PACT Government with world class support in a shared agenda of improving the lives of Caymanians and residents, and this is reflected in the new organisational structure.”
“The new structure”, he added, “also presents us with an opportunity to be agile and innovative in deploying our talent, particularly in the areas of finance and human resources, to most effectively support the new structure.
“I am also pleased that this new structure is creating development opportunities for some of our aspiring Caymanian leaders across the Civil Service, which will only help to enhance our capacity for succession planning.”
