  • Belize Police get into Internet Technology

    Today, the Belize Police Department unveiled its new and improved presence on the World Wide Web.

The new site promises to offer better service more efficiently and effectively to Belizeans and non-Belizeans alike, whether you reside here or not. The site is www.belizepolice.bz.

    This new site is not to be confused with the pre-existing intranet that the department has been using for sometime now. That internal server is not accessible to the public, but this new site is and offers some great services.

  • Belize: E-government project kicks off in Belmopan

    The Government of Belize has hired consultants from the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU) in an effort to develop and implement a National Information Communication Technology and Innovation Policy and Strategy as well as an E-Government Strategy and Plan of Action.

    According to Dr. Colin Young, Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Energy, Science and Technology and Public Utilities, in developing the policies “we will be looking at the best possible ways that Belize can harness the use of ICTs to transform the way government does business with the public as well as how the private sector and civil societies can use ICTs to improve their efficiency”.

  • BZ: One standard motor vehicle registration and license system to be implemented

    For the most part, the process of acquiring any form of driver’s license or vehicle registration has been anything but a uniform and cohesive process. Up until now, there were 9 different systems for the 9 different municipalities but since the latest Belizean-Taiwanese venture, all of that will change. The Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) has been the spearhead in this USD $2.8 million project. The project is a 4-year joint partnership on e-government so that the Belizean citizenry will be able to enjoy a more effective and efficient transport service.

    On June 8, 2017, the Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the Taiwanese Ambassador, H. E. Charles K. Y. Liu, and Financial Secretary, Joseph Waight of the Ministry of Finance. The MoU is for the e-government initiative “Belize Motor Vehicle Registration and License System” (BMVRALS). The intent of the 4-year-project is to make the current, decentralized system one that will be integrated and centralized by the end of its two phases. The current systems work independent of each other leaving room for inefficient record management and data sharing. The new system will be implemented in the entire country to digitize transport services.

    E-Government - it's an idea that's been given a lot of lip service over the years, but the grand concept has enjoyed very little real world application. And so, anyone who wants to get anything done - has to surrender to the tyranny of the bureaucracy, endless forms and mountains paperwork.
