Minister Travel Web Page Being Upgraded

August 30, 2017 | 10 Comments

The Ministers’ travel web page is “being upgraded and will be placed on the Government portal” and will “become active by the end of October,” Minister Lovitta Foggo said, adding that “my Cabinet colleagues and I are committed to full transparency and will post all government-related travel expenses on the site.”

The web page went live in October 2014, and listed costs of Minister’s trips abroad. The page, which was last updated with trips taken in May 2017, is not currently part of the gov.bm portal, and resides on the citvbermuda.com domain.

Minister for the Cabinet Office with Responsibility for Government Reform Lovitta Foggo today stated, “The Ministers’ travel site is being upgraded and will be placed on the Government portal, www.gov.bm.

“It will become active by the end of October. Once it is complete, the old site will be deactivated and the information will be brought over to the new site. My Cabinet colleagues and I are committed to full transparency and will post all government-related travel expenses on the site.

“I will provide details, including the website address, when we announce the launch,” Minister Foggo added.

    Has the Minister clarified whether the new website will post back-dated information re: trips taken/costs incurred while the website is down/being upgraded?

    • Ringmaster says:

      Spot on. Odd that the website was fine until July 18 but for some reason won’t be active until the end of October. Transparency? Please respond Minister Foggo because many are skeptical based on what happened in the period 1998 to 2012.

  2. Watching says:

    Of course it will. I mean, why wouldn’t it? Not as if the PLP have a history of hiding anything.

  3. Isaac H says:

    Lovitta…. hey…. You areUp for premier… how do you respond darlin?

  4. ramblings says:

    Was this move put out to tender? Who is doing the work? at what cost?

    This is transparency…

  5. Francis says:

    Here we go. And who is upgrading the website? External party or government services. We already know that Ministers Brown and Rabain went away. Enquiring minds want to know – why not release a press statement about the costs they have incurred to date it if can’t go on the website?
    Hey alps how many Ministers are now using GP cars?

  6. One Who Escaped says:

    They will post all the travel expenses, except the ones they don’t! This isn’t transparency. It’s just a list of things they choose to post.

  7. Athena says:

    It is to be hoped that ALL EXPENSES will be shown from July 18 onwards.

    If there is transparency why is the name of the party upgrading the website omitted from this press release?

    To date transparency seems elusive.

  8. Yawn says:

    And your beloved OBA, who announced GP cars would be abandoned, but continued to use them during 2012 – 2017…….any reason why you never raised GP Cars issue during the OBA’s tenure?

  9. Unbelievable says:

    I can’t wait to see the expensive trips that PLP ministers end up taking.
