Jamaica: All MSMEs Can Benefit from New Public Procurement Regime

03 Nov 19: All micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), regardless of the industry, will be able to benefit from the Government’s new public procurement regime, which came into force on April 1. This assurance comes from Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Senator the Hon. Pearnel Charles Jr., who noted that there is no restriction to any particular type of MSME. The new regime, the revised Public Procurement Act, seeks to regulate the procurement of goods, works and services by entities of Government.
