City Hall receives blueprint for new IT plan
The Georgetown Municipality will hopefully now be in a better position to deliver its services efficiently with the implementation of a new information Technology strategy devised by a team from the Polaris Software Lab in India.
The team submitted its blueprint for success today, after two months of working with the municipality.
Speaking at a simple handover ceremony and accepting a copy of the blueprint, Mayor Hamilton Green said that he applauds the work of the Indian specialists since it is a step taken to help the council recover from its shortcomings.
Similar remarks were also shared by Town Clerk (acting) Yonette Pluck and Acting City Treasurer Andrew Meredith.
Meredith said while the new IT system is expected to link all the departments within the municipality, it is hoped that 25% of the council’s revenue will be garnered through this medium.
And while expressing hope that the city council will use the findings in the blueprint as a roadmap to improve its services, Team Leader Vivek Bharti said that the transformation process needs the support from all the senior members of the council.
The new IT transformation plan is for the period 2009-2011.
