The Application Management and Data Analysis (AMANDA) system has already been implemented in all parish councils and in eight referral agencies and is said to be well on the way to achieving its objective of reducing the length of time for development approvals.

AMANDA will allow the Government to track approval of construction permits across all parish councils in Jamaica. Pottinger Scott said the turn-around time for business approvals is being lowered from an average of 124 days capacity building needed.

Patricia Francis, chair of the Public Sector Transformation Committee, said that the public should appreciate that there will be the need for capacity building within the public sector for the implementation of the AMANDA system. Francis further said that with the AMANDA system, persons who make development applications will be able to track the process online and be able to respond to any concerns that have been raised.

Will easier developments lead to real growth or just money in the pockets of some?
