After providing several months worth of agile service delivery during the pandemic, civil servants in Cayman have returned to the work place.

In consultation with Chief Officers and Heads of Department, the Deputy Governor has re-instituted normal working conditions for the civil service with civil servants working from their designated work places.

Flexible Work Policies are allowing eligible staff to apply for limited use of Remote Working and Flexible Work Hours. Where flexible arrangements are permitted, it is conditional upon teams maintaining high customer satisfaction.

The Civil Service Programme Board has recently been established and is charged with supporting the Deputy Premier and the Soft-reopening of the Borders. 

Working operations will replicate the successful approach taken to combat the pandemic. Senior leaders and technical experts will be working collaboratively, across silos, to deliver the Government’s priorities under the chairmanship of the Deputy Governor.

Members are being drawn from the senior leadership within five Ministries and Portfolios, the governor's office and the Health Services Authority.  The Programme Management Office is supplied by the Office of the Deputy Governor and dozens of technical advisors in the areas of public health, Policy, IT, Project Management, security, border control, legal services and other areas are supporting the fulfillment of the project.
