Jamaican Executive Agency is a semi-autonomous Jamaican government agency. It remains a part of Jamaican government but will have more responsibility for its own management and performance. The primary aim is to reduce central control and delegate authority to the Chief Executive Officers in the various Jamaican government institutions. Another aim is to substantially improve the quality and quantity of services provided by Jamaican government agencies.
