House: Burt on Government reform

The Government has put together a plan for reform based on “a future forward Government for the people of Bermuda”, David Burt told Parliament this morning.

The Premier said professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers and unions had been consulted to follow through on the Progressive Labour Party's election pledge of 2017.

He said that the Spending and Government Efficiency report had shortcomings including “no unifying vision and no altruistic purpose”.

Mr Burt added: “Part of realising a vision is actually having one.”

He said: “It is the Government's intent to focus on the outcomes that society needs and wants, while managing major economic, social and technological changes.”

As well as a target operating model for the Government plan, Mr Burt said there would be a “quick wins” plan that would lay out “specific deliverables to be accomplished in the near term”.

He told MPs that the Government Reform Strategic Plan would be tabled in the House of Assembly.
