The overall objective is fostering competitiveness of The Bahamas by reducing the costs of conducting business with the government. Specifically, the largest component of the operation seeks to simplify and digitize government procedures. Among other activities, it will include the simplification and reengineering of procedures, giving priority to those related to starting a business and registering a property; and will also provide the necessary support to facilitate the role of the National Insurance Board (NIB) cards as a mechanism to identify persons.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
