Taking on critics of government’s refusal to adopt the 2014 EY report wholesale, Premier Alden McLaughlin updated lawmakers on Project Future.

Mr. McLaughlin said 38 of 57, or two-thirds, of the initiatives that make up the ambitious Project Future roster have seen some movement since its launch six months ago.

16 are in the initial phases, 9 have outline business cases in the preparatory stages, 7 are in the project planning stage, 6 are in the closing phase, and one, moving the London office under the portfolio of Home Affairs is complete.

The premier dismissed critics who call for mass privatisation, saying it’s up to government – not consultants – to chart the course for the country’s future.

“As a government, we have a great deal of respect for the hard-working civil servants who do so much for the people of our country, and we see no reason to risk their jobs on the basis of beliefs held by a few, that outsourcing is the panacea for every problem,” said Mr. McLaughlin.

So will all of this get accomplished before the 20-17 elections? The premier said no… stressing Project Future is not intended as a quick fix.

He said the initiatives are planned to be rolled out over the next five years.
