Cabinet Approves Temporary Relocation Accountant Generals’ Department

Cabinet yesterday approved the temporary relocation of the Accountant General's Department (AGD) amidst concerns with the air quality at the present location.

The submission was prepared by the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service as a first action item following a meeting with Finance Minister, the Honourable Dr. Nigel Clarke and the AGD staff last Friday where they expressed their frustration with the work environment.

Dr. Clarke assured the staff that, "we intend to move speedily to identify a suitable location to temporarily house the offices of the Accountant Generals' Department."

The Finance Minister also indicated that further rehabilitation work and tests would be done at the existing location by suitable qualified independent third parties, at which time a final determination will be made on the habitation of the building.

Calm was restored at the AGD after talks this afternoon with the Finance Minister.
