Site audience and purpose
Welcome to www.gov.ky, the internet information portal of the Cayman Islands Government. This portal is a resource tool, developed by Computer Services in conjunction with Government Information Services, portfolios, ministries, and departments to help you locate government information available on the world wide web. The portal will also allow you to download government forms, the first benefit of the e-Government initiative.
A portal acts as an entrance to a group of websites. Navigating becomes a little easier because a portal offers links to related sites, in this case all the Cayman Islands Government websites.
The site is divided into four main topics; namely:
- About Government discusses the form and role of the Government.
- About Cayman provides information about the Cayman Islands and its people.
- Press Room for community events, press releases, and media contacts.
- Find for information guides and directory information about key people and Government organisations.
Information is categorised and can be accessed, via a directory-style listing, if you browse by category. For exmaple, categories exist for Arts, Recreation & Travel, Business & Industry, and Economics & Finance amongst others.
Pages on the site conform to a standard format.
The banner menu provides links to the main topics and the reference topics from each page of the site. Click on the Government crest image to return to the homepage.
In the right-hand column of each page, except the home page, is a navigation bar, showing the current position within the hierarchy of the site and providing a local menu specific to the section of the site currently being visited.
At the foot of each page is information on the date the page was published or last modified, the primary contact details for the Cayman Islands Government, and other useful links, e.g. terms and conditions, access keys, feedback, etc.
Abbreviations and acronyms
Pages and documents may contain unfamiliar abbreviations and acronyms. Please review the glossary of abbreviations and acronyms for clarification.
