The Official Gazette will be posted on the Government’s website beginning next month.

As of November 1, all Government and legal notices, as well as Bermuda regulations, will be found at www.gov.bm.

Lovitta Foggo, the Minister for the Cabinet Office with Responsibility for Government Reform, said the decision to move away the daily newspaper will save taxpayers more than $300,000 a year.

“The shift from using a traditional newspaper for official notices to the use of an online tool that allows access to notices on any mobile device is consistent with Government’s move towards becoming a digital leader,” said Ms Foggo.

“The Government recognises the need to embrace a rapidly changing technological landscape.

“We are committed to adapting our service delivery to meet the needs of our modern society. 

“This new online Official Gazette allows the Government to fulfill its responsibilities efficiently and effectively.

“Further, it’s part of a longer term reform strategy that will see the public benefit from more comprehensive, secure and accessible digital services from the Government.

“Ultimately, our reform vision is a future-forward Government for the people of Bermuda.”

A Government spokeswoman said that some Government notices may continue to be published on other media outlets “to ensure the widest possible distribution of the content”.
