This comprehensive ERP system will integrate all government functions and operations into one cohesive system, enabling seamless transfer and exchange of data and information between different components of the Public Service. 

The Ministry of Finance has launched a groundbreaking training programme, themed Public Service Reimagined” which reflects the government’s commitment to rethinking and redesigning its public service delivery mechanisms. It emphasizes the exploration of innovative solutions (Oracle ERP System), the elimination of outdated practices, and the adoption of cutting-edge technologies to meet the evolving needs of citizens and businesses. 

The programme leads with the mantra that digital transformation is not all about technology. It is about people! In light of this, the programme aims to retrain, retool, and equip ALL officers throughout the service with the necessary tools to thrive in a digital public service. The programme will reach over 25,000 public officers with training tailored specifically to the Government of the Bahamas.
