The Accountant General’s Department (AGD) will finalise its relocation from Public Building West to the Oceana Building at 2-4 Church Street in downtown Kingston by May 31.
To accommodate the move, the AGD will be closed to the public today, May 29.
Limited services will be offered from the new location on Tuesday, May 30. Full service will resume on Wednesday, May 31.
The closure will disrupt some normal customer services. However, it will not disrupt the operations of the Consolidated Fund.
Members of the public may still contact the AGD at 922-8320-7, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website: www.treasury.gov.jm.
Speaking at a JIS ‘Think Tank’ in March, Accountant General, Carlene Murdock, said the move was necessary, as the present location was no longer suitable for the expanding role of the Department.
“Where we are now, we don’t have the infrastructure that is necessary to move us to where we want to go as a modernised department,” said Mrs. Murdock.
