PCJ’s mandate expanded in 1995 to include the development of indigenous renewable energy resources and extended to be a main entity in implementing the National Energy Policy 2009-2030, which is structured to ensure that Jamaica achieves by 2030, “A modern, efficient, diversified and environmentally sustainable energy sector…” In November 2009, the GOJ mandated the use of ethanol blended fuel for motor engines throughout the island, phasing out the use of the environmentally harmful petroleumbased Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE).

Our performance audit aims to assess the management of the supply and distribution of ethanol in Jamaica. In scoping this study, we have considered carefully how the audit will contribute to the Auditor General’s wider strategic aims by:

  • Helping the Auditor General’s Department (AuGD) to improve the use of public funds through better Governance and Resource Management; and,
  • Providing an indication of current activities being carried out by PCJ to advance efforts towards

achieving National outcome number 10: Energy Security and Efficiency.
