Welcome to the webpage of the Organization of American States’ Office in Guyana. Our objective is to showcase the programs and activities contributing to national development. We trust that the site will promote a deeper understanding of OAS efforts in Guyana. Our office was established in April 18th, 1994 and our OAS Representative is Mr. Jean Ricot Dormeus.
Over the past years the OAS Guyana Office supported a number of training activities in public security including Aviation security, port security cyber security and trafficking in persons. A number of nationals of Guyana benefited from OAS scholarships/awards in professional development courses, undergraduate and graduate degree programs. These training activities along with the recent implementation of a number of projects in the education field contributed to fulfilling the mandate of the OAS in the area of development.

Metrology and National Measurement Standards to support Environmental Sustainability and the Enhancement of Human Health, Safety and Prosperity in the Americas (National Institute of Standards and Technology)
Observations and Recommendations
1. The project should strive to incorporate the participation of the export and the related sectors in each participating country in order to strengthen the continuity of the project benefits.
2. Many of the project activities do not specify their duration, the number of participants, or the location, which makes the analysis of the budget uncertain.
3. Travel budget for Act. 1.1.2 and 1.3.1 are not consistent with the budget for 1.1.1, hence we recommend lowering these budgeted amounts.
4. Documentation expenses for Act. 4.1 should be covered by participants.
5. The project should incorporate or state explicitly the creation of a network or website to foster partnership amongst the participants.
