      OBJECTIVES
    • Caribbean Technical and Advisory Services Facility (TASF) on eGovernment
      What is CARICAD?
      CARICAD is a regional intergovernmental Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Agency specializing in transforming and modernizing the public sector within Caribbean States.
      Headquartered in Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, CARICAD was established in 1980 by an agreement among CARICOM governments.
    • Caribbean Technical and Advisory Services Facility (TASF) on eGovernment
      Some Definitions
      What is eGovernment?
      • eGovernment is the use of information and communication technology (ICT) to promote more efficient and effective government, facilitate more accessible government services, allow greater public access to information, and make government more accountable to citizens.
      • eGovernment might involve delivering services via the Internet, telephone, community centers (self serviced or facilitated by others), wireless devices, or other communications systems. (Pacific Council on International Policy Working Group on eGovernment in the Developing World) 2002.
    • Caribbean Technical and Advisory Services Facility (TASF) on eGovernment
      Why eGovernment?
      The improvement of ICT and e-government systems in public sector management can:
      be a powerful engine for economic growth, competitiveness and jobs, while at the same time
      improving citizens’ quality of life. It will facilitate communication between public authorities
      and citizens, and between businesses and clients. It also has the potential to increase citizen
      participation in the democratic process and can, in ultimate analysis, improve the position of
      Caribbean countries in the global political economy.

      To provide a broad updateable programmatic framework for activities deemed crucial from the point of view of e-government development in the Caribbean, to be considered in national and regional plans and programs for e-government development and to offer programmatic information to the donors.

      The Challenges in an Information Society to governments are more daunting than anything they [governments] had to face in the past. Governments in their typical bureaucratic mode and political nature adapt very slowly to changes, thus meeting the needs of an Internet savvy society can become problematic.
