The Government of Jamaica has sought to strengthen results-based management in the Public Sector by implementing a number of initiatives through the Integrated Managing for Results Programme. One such initiative is the Government-wide Performance Monitoring and Evaluation System (PMES) which is being implemented by the Cabinet Office through the Performance Management and Evaluation Branch (PMEB). The PMEB works primarily with the Ministries and their portfolio Departments and Agencies to improve their strategic planning, performance monitoring and evaluation and reporting processes so that Government can be provided with reliable performance information on the results of policies, programmes and projects that are being implemented.
