Global Affairs Canada is helping the Government of Jamaica (GOJ) to support justice sector reforms through an initiative called the “Justice Undertakings for Social Transformation (JUST)” Program. The project is currently being implemented by the Government of Jamaica (Ministry of Justice with the Justice Reform Implementation Unit (JRIU) with support from Canada’s Department of Justice (Justice Canada) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). Non-state implementing partners have been integrated into the structure of the JUST in the 2018/19 Fiscal year.

The JUST Project can be divided into three components, as follows:

A)      Technical Assistance

B)       Institutional Strengthening

C)       Social Order

This activity falls under the Social Order component and  focuses on initiatives aimed at improving the capacity of women and men and girls and boys to equitably access gender-sensitive justice information, advice and services, as well as improving the capacity of citizens, civil society representatives (including women’s rights organization) and legal professionals to participate in the justice reform process.

A tour was conducted of selected courts throughout Jamaica to assess existing infrastructure and determine service and accessibility gaps.  The visits to the courts sought to determine the logistics and 

procedure for entrance to court, accommodation within the waiting/holding areas within courts, departure from courts and interfacing with court personnel, by victims and vulnerable witnesses with special reference to boys and girls.

The court spaces identified will require different levels of internal and external remodeling to conform to the description proposed.  Internal work includes demolition and erection of  semi-permanent walls, installation of doors and partitions, minor plumbing and painting.  The external work also involves the improvement to access for the physically challenged.

To fulfill this mandate, UNDP on behalf of Global Affairs Canada, is seeking the services of a one or two contractors to undertake renovation of two courts namely, St. Mary Parish Court and Clarendon Parish Court.


Summary of Services:

Painting to be done at the St. Mary Parish Court which is situated at Port Maria, St. Mary
