After conducting a routine assessment of its operations, geared toward the continual improvement of financial management practices, a number of recommendations for improving the Unit’s procurement system were identified. Updating the existing procurement manual to address gaps related to procurement and contract management was among the suggestions. CDB’s support included providing training and financing consultancy services to prepare a procurement and contract management manual that will act as a practical guide to CDEMA’s staff. The new procurement and contract management framework was presented to participants from 13 of CDEMA’s 18 Participating States on March 7 during a one-day workshop at the Bank.

During the workshop, officers from the Region’s National Disaster Offices were trained in the new procedures, and tabled their queries about the new manual, which will apply to procurement undertaken within Participating States for future CDEMA CU projects and activities. Representatives from from 13 of CDEMA’s 18 Participating States met at CDB to discuss the new guidelines and procedures.

The new manual outlines changes to existing procedures, including: Sep 29, 2020 a more transparent process that will allow the private sector to identify opportunities, access contract award information and understand their rights and responsibilities. The new procedures are expected to be implemented in CDEMA’s new financial year, which starts in September, and will help shape a more effective procurement process, including how the Agency hires for disaster management projects, and how contractors bid for projects.

Prime Minister Browne may look to party supporters to win Antigua-Barbuda’s…

first_imgPrime Minister Gaston Browne says he may be forced to mobilise the base of the ruling Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) to ensure that the “yes” vote succeeds in next month’s referendum on whether or not the island should replace the London-based Privy Council as its final court. Browne, speaking on a programme on his radio station over the last weekend, said that he was disappointed that the move to replace the Privy Council with the Trinidad-based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) had become very political and not the non-partisan approach he had envisaged for such a serious matter. Voters will go to the polls on November 6 to decide on whether or not to retain the Privy Council as the island’s highest court and the National Coordinating Committee (NCC) is undertaking a public education programme ahead of the poll. Regional jurist wants Caribbean countries to hold referendum… Apr 1, 2019 Jan 18, 2016 Antigua-Barbuda PM reiterates need for bi-partisan approach to CCJAntigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne has reiterated the need for a non-partisan approach to the November 6 referendum when citizens will vote on whether or not to replace the London-based Privy Council with the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) as the island’s final court. Speaking at the launch…September 21, 2018In “Antigua & Barbuda”Antigua to stage referendum on joining Caribbean Court of Justice this yearThe Antigua and Barbuda government last Wednesday said that it intends to hold a referendum within the next four months on whether or not the island will adopt the Trinidad-based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) as its final court.

Although the government…August 31, 2016In “Antigua & Barbuda”Share this on WhatsAppcenter_img Preparation for CCJ referendum in Antigua-Barbuda underway –… You may be interested in… The government needs a 67 per cent vote in the referendum coupled with a two-thirds majority in the Parliament to move to the CCJ, which was established in 2001 by regional governments to replace the Privy Council. “I am of the view that the Labour Party has to take a frontal role in this now based on what’s happening. This thing has taken a totally different direction and to appeal to our based, we expect every single Labour Party supporter to support this transition and I believe that there are plenty sensible UPP (United Progressive Party) supporters and undecided people, let us go out there and get our 67 per cent and forget about the likes…of all those who think they smart,” he told radio listeners. Browne said that those in opposition to the vote had used several excuses in a bid to get support for their positions. “You know on the one hand they saying they are not against the transition to the CCJ, that is to have the CCJ as our Apex Court, but on the other hand they are trying to argue and without any convincing argument or arguments that we need to wait. “Now if it is that these individuals are so serious and really wanted to see this transition…they would have maybe ask for a transition period,” he added. Apart from Antigua and Barbuda, the voters in Grenada will also cast their ballots in a referendum on the same day to decide whether to join the CCJ, which also serves as an international tribunal interpreting the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas that governs the 15-member regional integration movement, CARICOM. Only Barbados, Belize, Dominica and Guyana among CARICOM countries are full members of the CCJ. CMC Share this:PrintTwitterFacebookLinkedInLike this:Like Loading… last_img read more

State Auditor Brian Colón Issues Statement Following Raid Of Las Vegas Mayor; City Hall

first_imgState Auditor ColónLAS VEGAS, NM – This afternoon State Auditor Colón issued the following statement regarding the New Mexico Attorney General raids on the home of Las Vegas Mayor and City Hall: “Upon information identified through an open and ongoing special examination the special investigations division on June 24, 2019 directed the Independent Public Accountant to consider risk to assess the potential loss of taxpayer dollars,” Colón said. “The allegations of improper compliance and violations of law concerning conflicts of interest between Mayor Tonita Gurule-Giron and Gemini Construction/Marvin Salazar and other matters suggestive of elevated risk have resurfaced. It is deeply concerning as these matters were initially identified in the special audit released by the OSA over a year ago.”The Office of the State Auditor is in a unique position to expand its scope beyond what is documented as the original concerns in the search warrant and is committed to working hand in glove with the Attorney General and law enforcement to ensure New Mexicans are protected from fraud, waste, and abuse.New Mexicans concerned about potential instances of fraud, waste, and abuse should contact the Office of the State Auditor.

Introducing Calvary Chapel Of Los Alamos

first_imgBy Senior Pastor Pat KestellCalvary Chapel The world is full of broken individuals; the church is no different. Rather than hide behind masks of pretentious righteousness or of, “having it all together”, our goal is to continue the work of Jesus and, “Mend the Broken”, beginning with ourselves and reaching to all.Calvary Chapels endeavor to “Simply teach the Bible simply” as we search the heart of God. We do this through Sunday School 9:15 a.m., Sunday Worship Service 10:30 a.m., an informal sit down Sunday night study 6:30 p.m., and various small groups, which put relationships at a premium. There are, of course, loving staff and volunteers in children’s church and nursery dedicated to the care of each precious child.Calvary Chapel may be known in the community for our ministry of serving free coffee, lemonade, and water at the Friday night concerts as well as our annual free Pumpkin Patch in October just to show love to all in our community.Our goal is not merely to GO to church but to BE the church.
