ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The entire budget process is now complete and the 2019 Standing Finance Committee (SFC) report is available to the public.

This is according to a release from the Government Information Service (GIS) dated June 11, 2019, which noted that over a period of four days in April 2019, legislators met as the Standing Finance Committee (SFC) to deliberate the Territory’s 2019 budget. Upon conclusion of the discussions, the Report on the Deliberations of the Standing Finance Committee was released.

In speaking on the deliberations and the budget process, Speaker of the House Honourable Julian Willock described the process as a “successful exercise”.

Although the SFC meetings are closed to the public, each year the SFC report is released summarising the discussions. This year’s 260 page report outlines discussions on a range of topics, from the Territory’s schools to revenue estimates, to waste management.

During the course of the meetings, which took place April 5th, and April 16th through 18th, department heads, unit managers and other public officers appeared before the Standing Finance Committee to give presentations as well as make themselves available for questions from legislators. 

To obtain a copy of the report, interested persons can contact the Office of the House of Assembly at 468-6900.
