WHAT WE'RE ABOUT
PLANNING FOR SUCCESS
Transparency and Accountability
It is important for GBPA to show its transparency and accountability for the administration and management of the City of Freeport. In this vein, management will keep the public abreast of new regulatory processes and developments. Of course, there will be many projects with confidentiality agreements that cannot be publicized. In these instances, GBPA will follow its obligation in this regard.
GBPA is has launched the ‘new' GBPA.com as a dynamic website on city services, including business licenses, building and development services and mapping, as well as news on new business developments. A key ingredient of this site will be the eServices transaction processing component, which will allow payment of licensing and building permit fees, and processing of city maintenance requests, mapping, and other city services. Also, the site investgrandbahama.com is linked to gbpa.com, and is specifically designed for those seeking information on investing in Grand Bahama.
GBPA is committed to improving its communication with the public. We will work to allay the sometimes one-dimensional perception of GBPA as the ‘enforcer', and will illustrate the direct correlation of the City's regulation policy with its ‘well-planned' and ‘structured' characteristics.
A High Performance Organization
GBPA is committed to cultivating an organization that will efficiently serve the community of Grand Bahama. We intend to create a streamlined workforce that is effective in meeting our customer's need, whether that need is in business licensing or acquiring permits to construct businesses/homes. We want our processes to be simple, efficient and customer friendly.
We believe that the employees of the GBPA Group are among the best in The Bahamas, and we will continue to invest in our most precious resources. With succession planning, we will guide our employees' professional advancement and further motivate those with a passion for excellence in their work and commitment to the Group.
