Technical Missions

Two technical assistance missions of one week took place in each parliament of the Caribbean region. Each mission was conducted by a team of two/three experts, preferably IT staff of more technologically-advanced parliaments, who worked with the staff of the beneficiary parliament. The first mission aimed to carry out an assessment of the state of ICT of the parliament and outline gaps and opportunities for future strategic recommendations for its improvement. The second mission focused on the preparation of the strategic plan. Between the first and second mission, the mission team of experts prepared an Assessment Report to help maximize the impact of the second mission and the following formulation of the ICT strategic plan. The Assessment Report was shared with the recipient parliaments in between missions in order to finalize it with additional contributions and inputs. In addition, members of the strategic planning teams of each parliament were exposed to the tools, resources and methods needed for upgrading their skills and build institutional capacity in this domain. Parallel to it, the strategic planners’ teams were invited to take part in a virtual discussion with peers from other parliaments in the region, which resulted in the establishment of a regional community of practice of planners
