Executive Office

Under the leadership of the Chief Technical Director (CTD), the Executive Office is responsible for the overall day to day management of the Division. The office has both Technical and Administrative functions that entail:

 Strategic Policy Direction

As part of the Financial Sector Regulation Programme in the Ministry of Finance and Planning, the Division’s portfolio contributes to creating a society in which each citizen has every prospect of a better quality of life.

Reporting (Internal and External)

All periodic reports on the Division’s operations and activities are documented, analysed and disseminated to the relevant partners and authorities.

 Local Cooperation

The FID Act allows the FID to share information with other designated agencies to fulfil its mandate of investigating financial crimes. To augment this information sharing ability and processes the FID has entered into MOUs with the following government agencies:

  • The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF)
  • The Jamaica Customs Department (JCD)
  • The Tax Administration of Jamaica (TAJ) – PENDING

International Cooperation

International cooperation is critical if countries are to succeed against the twin scourges of money laundering and terrorist financing. International cooperation to tackle transnational crime includes:

  • Sharing of information as per the prescribed legislation of each jurisdiction
  • Tracing and restraining assets and transfer of technical skills and expertise.

Jamaica has demonstrated that it remains an active participant in the international arena by engaging and cooperating with other jurisdictions as well as by its membership in international bodies committed to Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) measures including:

  • Membership in Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF)
  • Involvement in CFATF Working Groups( training and typologies)
  • Application for membership in the Egmont Group of FIUs

Jamaica has also entered into Memorandum of Understanding with Colombia to facilitate the sharing of relevant information with that jurisdiction.

Communications and Public Relations

The FID is an integral part of the AML/CFT Regime and makes representation at various fora locally, regionally and internationally such as CFATF. All public relations and communications for the Division originate from the Executive Office, including liaison with print and electronic media. Depending on the nature of the communication and as a Division of the Ministry of Finance, the Executive Office also liaises with the Public Relations Section at the Ministry of Finance and Planning as and when necessary.

Significant Case Management

Major cases are dealt with in a collaborative manner by a cross-functional team of internal persons to ensure efficiency and effectiveness in carrying out investigations and prosecutions. This team comprises forensic examiners, financial analysts, attorneys, IT specialists and investigators.

Legal Policy and Strategy

The FID mainly operates under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA), Terrorism Prevention Act (TPA), Financial Investigation Division Act (FIDA), Corruption Prevention Act (CPA), legislations which guide the Division in carrying out its mandate and operational activities.
