LOL - guided by the Holy Spirit! I think that a chickcharney would make a better spiritual guide.

Actually, if the interest is compounded, the amount is slightly in excess of $829,000. The Tribune has done just a simple interest calculation, but if the interest is yearly, it should be compounded on the amount owing + interest owing.

As a player in this industry, I take issue with the BFSB itself. They have done literally nothing to take leadership of the industry, but rather collected fees and did the "Look busy, Jesus is coming" routine without doing anything constructive.

While other jurisdictions like the Cayman Islands have been formulating Beneficial Ownership regulations and advanced, but not onerous AML/KYC (using AI and Blockchain), there has been virtually no leadership or policies coming out of the BFSB. They live in their own little bubble while the immediate world around them slipslides away into oblivion.

They are supposed to provide leadership, representation, stewardship, innovation and advocate for the 2nd pillar of the economy. All they do is go to conferences and put out glossy brochures and have onanistic meetings that amount to nothing. The trip to Dubai was a jolly that was laughable. It's like a lemonade stand going to conference for the likes of WalMart, Lowes and Amazon. Tanya McCartney is the wrong person for this job. It's more like a sinecure. We need someone with real knowledge of the industry, and someone with the will to innovate. The key leadership role is missing.

The government should hire a software engineer / technical architect to examine the code to see if it can even do what it is supposed to do. Then they should chase the contractor to fix the platform.

I agree with the things you say. I'm willing to bet that there wasn't a project manager in the real sense of the word (PMP certified, etc). I'm willing to bet that the acceptance test was just a demo, and the government did not understand what they were buying or the limitations of the crappy website. Once again, the government needs a CIO who knows IT and knows what the hell he/she is doing.

Kwasi Thompson, in spite of all his high-faluting words, as Minister of State for Grand Bahama, has done nothing but pontificate. He is a lame-duck, do nothing minister. Where is the Tech Hub?
