Q: What is the value of UTech, Jamaica’s
Contribution to Jamaica?


 

UTech, Knights Have Your Say – What’s The Value of UTech, Jamaica’s Contribution to Jamaica | UTech, Jamaica Government Subvention Issue

Dear UTech, Knights and Friends,

In a letter to the editor of the Jamaica Observer, dated Monday 25th February, 2019 one Lipton Matthews wrote “UTech protest unwise” and made this reference Taxpayers could easily ask UTech to quantify its contribution to Jamaica, and if results show that the value created by the university is less than the input of taxpayers, then they will argue that UTech must receive less funding” (more…)

WHAT IS THE UTech Jamaica GOVERNMENT SUBVENTION ISSUE?

Recent news reports tell us that the House of Representatives has approved the second Supplementary Estimates. The Government plans to spend an additional $11.45 billion for this financial year. The Minister of Finance’s statement on the matter should be noted. He said that this “favourable fiscal performance resulted from a confluence of higher than projected revenue and grants and below programmed expenditure”.

Among the increases that were announced was a $963-million increase in subvention for The University of the West Indies (UWI). There is no doubt that UWI deserves every bit of these funds, and more. Stakeholders at the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) had been expectant that there would be an increase in subvention. But, alas! Not a penny for the national university. There is no evidence so far that efforts are being made to address the glaring inequity in the per student subvention allocation for UTech’s students. Why was UTech ignored, again?
