eGov Jamaica Limited is celebrating its 30th anniversary in April under the theme: ‘Transforming Lives Through Technology’.

The company, which has been providing Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services to Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies since 1986, will be hosting several events in commemoration of the anniversary.

Activities will get underway on Sunday (April 17) with a church service at the Tarrant Baptist Church, 51 Molynes Road, Kingston 10, beginning at 10:00 a.m.

A special anniversary supplement will appear in The Sunday Gleaner on April 24.

The company will also be hosting an awards ceremony for long-serving employees and an anniversary luncheon later in the month.

eGov Jamaica Limited, formerly known as the Fiscal Services Limited, was initially conceptualised to automate the revenue-collecting agencies of Jamaica. It has now expanded to offer automation of services provided by the Government.

Customer Relationship Manager at eGov Jamaica, Grace Alvaranga, told JIS News that in addition to consulting and guiding public sector agencies in IT-related activities, the agency has led the automation of Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) and the traffic ticketing system being used to collate information for traffic offences.

The agency hosts a validation web service that allows private sector organisations to authenticate the Tax Registration Number (TRN), motor vehicle and driver’s licence information of citizens, as well as design Customs Automated Services for Jamaica Customs, which is also being used by the Antiguan Customs.

eGov Jamaica also provides automation service for the Students’ Loan Bureau (SLB), as well as the Transport Authority. In addition, the entity has been promoting its data centre services, where it provides storage of servers.

The company is also pleased with its annual internship programme in collaboration with University of the West Indies (UWI), University of Technology (UTech), and HEART/Trust NTA. It also offers school tours.

Mrs. Alvaranga said that “the organisation is dedicated to the mission of producing quality service in ICT.”
