OURIC

In April 2000, the OUR recognized the need to effectively manage the documents and books which it had accumulated. As a result, the OUR’s Library was established in 2003 and it has since evolved into an Information Centre (OURIC).

JOIN OURIC AS WE PARTNER WITH THE LIBRARY AND INFORMATION ASSOCIATION OF JAMAICA (LIAJA) IN CELEBRATING LIBRARY AND INFORMATION WEEK - 2020 OCTOBER 25 - 31  (see CALENDAR OF EVENTS BELOW)

OURIC's Objectives are:

“To contribute to national development by creating an environment for the efficient delivery of utility services to the customers while ensuring that service providers have the opportunity to make a reasonable return on investment.”

  • Deliver relevant and user-centric content to its stakeholders;
  • Enhance user experience through excellent customer service;
  • Modernise its approach to information access and delivery;
  • Maintain standards of excellence in its representation of the parent organisation;
