Some of the projects which have been assessed and assisted in their design by the PIMSEC through the PIMS process include:

  • Integrated Support to Jamaica Social Protection Strategy (of which the Programme for Advancement through Health and Education (PATH) is a major component) - The objective of the Programme is to support consumption and to protect human capital accumulation of poor families who are Programme for Advancement through Health and Education (PATH) beneficiaries.
  • Port Authority of Jamaica Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Expansion - This project will see the construction of 213,000 sq. ft. of new office space in Montego Bay and Portmore.



The Public Investment Management Committee (PIMC), chaired by the Honourable Minister of Finance & Public Service, Mr. Audley Shaw, is currently scheduled to meet every other month, on the last Friday of the month. The next scheduled meeting is set for 6 October 2017.

As such, all new project concepts or proposals must be submitted in advance for review and consideration by the Public Investment Management Secretariat (PIMSEC). Therefore all projects (accompanied by the letter of endorsement by the Portfolio Ministry) seeking review by the PIMC on that meeting date must be submitted (in hard AND soft copy) to PIMSEC by 03 August 2017.

Ministries, Departments or Agencies (MDAs) requiring further information on this process or requirements for submission of projects, may contact the PIMSEC at 935-5182.
