This will be achieved by investing in and supporting our staff, giving them the skills and equipment they need to deliver the professionalism that the public deserves.

The Financial Intelligence Unit seeks to provide an opportunity for Financial Institutions, Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBPs) and other stakeholders to access pertinent information and updates on Trends, Typologies and other current issues relating to Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing matters via the FIU website.
The site has been designed to be interactive and user friendly with supporting links to interface at different levels. It is the hope of the Unit that this initiative will strengthen the existing platform for deeper collaboration and cooperation with Local, Regional and International partners.
The Immigration and Passport Department is an extension arm of the Royal Grenada Police Force with special responsibility to administrate the State's affairs in the exercise of control of the movement of people (nationals and non-nationals) in and out of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique as a matter of National Security. In the exercise of this responsibility certain operational control mechanisms were established to militate against fraudulent use of the Grenadian Passport and to enhance our Border Control initiative.
The ICT Unit now forms part of the Ministry of National Security, Home Affairs, Public Administration and Information Communication Technology. The role of the ICT Unit continues to be vitally important in both setting direction across the government and in monitoring the maturity and development of ICT capability within government agencies.
It is a priority objective of the unit to establish a central point of ICT management to ultimately improve management oversight. In so doing the ICT Unit seeks to increase the government’s focus on whole-of-Government ICT policy creation, covering the Grenada Government enterprise architecture, information management, strategic planning and research. The Unit has also embarked on programs that seek to manage stakeholder engagement and provide aid to government agencies in the implementation of ICT policies, methods and frameworks. We are in the process of developing best practices, guidance, process improvement and training for government agencies and we are continuously gathering and analyzing ICT data from across the sector.
The ever changing Telecommunications, Broadband and Digital landscapes dictate that we increase our focus on the state’s telecommunications strategic direction, broadband roll out and the coordination of digital economy activities.

DPA’s mandate today remains very similar to what it was when the Department was first established. The Department sees itself involved in introducing and sustaining modern human resource management practices in the Public Service, working with public service (and public sector) managers to facilitate change, and advising the Prime Minister and Cabinet on the management of the Public Service/sector.
The Ministry is legally constituted under the Grenada Constitution Order 1973 as per the following:
Chapter IV Section 58. (3) There shall be, in addition to the office of Prime Minister, such other offices of Minister as may be established by Parliament or, subject to the provisions of any law enacted by Parliament, by the Governor-General, acting in accordance with the advice of the Prime Minister.
Chapter IV Section 67. Where any Minister has been charged with responsibility for any department of government, he shall exercise general direction and control over that department; and, subject to such direction and control, every department of government shall be under the supervision of a public officer whose office is referred in this Constitution as the office of a permanent secretary: Provided that two or more departments of government may be placed under the supervision of one Permanent Secretary.
