JAMP’s focuses its research on reports provided by the Government’s “watchdog” agencies. We have started the process using the work of the Auditor General’s Department (AGD). This was influenced by the range and coverage of the public sector audits done by the Department, the ease of access to reports via their website and the ease of understanding the reports. We will be including reports from agencies such as: the Integrity Commission and the Major Organised Anti-Corruption Agency, etc.
In selecting the breaches to track, we pull from the reports the breaches that:
- Are consistently recurring in a Government institution from year to year
- Speak to excessive loss of funds to the public purse.
- Or point to a budding problem that needs to be corrected early
- Are generated public interest
If there is one you have an interest in, that we are not tracking please let us know.
In January 2018, JAMP received initial seed funding from nine (9) private sector sponsors, namely, National Baking Company, Victoria Mutual Group, GB Group, ICD Group, Sagicor Group, Jamaica Broilers Group of Companies, JMMB Joan Duncan Foundation, JN Bank, and WISYNCO.
Funding for the project is now provided through a grant from the European Union (EU) as a part of their continued commitment to the development of Jamaica and its people. Funding began in July 2019 and will run through to July 2022.
JAMP was recently award funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for a project slated to run from November 2019 to April 2020 in partnership with the UWI Community Film Project.
