The big move is on, with Computer Services becoming the first department to transfer to the new Government Administration Building (GAB) this week.
Next up is Planning which is closed today (Friday, 25 March) for its move. The department will re-open in its new location on Tuesday, 29 March.
Joining these two departments is the Public Service Pension Board who will move in next week, closing to the public on Tuesday, 29 March and re-opening on Thursday, 30 March.
Relocation dates have also been set for the following ministries and departments: The Ministry of Health, Environment, Youth, Sports and Culture, the Portfolio of Internal and External Affairs, the Ministry of Community Affairs, Gender and Housing and the Governor's Office will move to the new building in the first week of April.
Following in the second week of April are the Ministry of Education, the Department of Education Services, the Financial Reporting Authority, the Attorney-General's Office and the Portfolio of the Civil Service.
"Moving into this state-of-the-art administration building is quite a milestone for our public service. This facility will no doubt enhance our service delivery but moreover, it provides civil servants with a safe and healthy work environment," said Permanent Secretary of District Administration, Works, Lands and Agriculture Kearney Gomez.
"The transfer is phased to streamline the move and minimize disruptions in service to the public. Nevertheless, we ask for patience and understanding as departments settle into their new accommodations," he added.
While specific dates still need to be confirmed, the following entities will move in during the second half of April: Hazard Management Cayman Islands and Government Information Services.
Set to relocate in May are the Lands and Survey Department, the Deputy Governor's Office, the Internal Audit Unit, the Electricity Regulatory Authority, General Registry, the Ministry of Finance, Tourism and Development and the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands (MACI).
