A project related to the Personal Administration (PIVA) has in the meantime started on Monday June 3rd and runs until the end of June. The study involves a ‘file comparison’ of those registered to the actual situation.

The cleaning-up of the PIVA is led by Mel Raboen de Sanchez Pacheco.

The overall process of the Civil Registry ‘clean-up’ started earlier this year and will intensify after this brief investigation. The research will be carried out in two phases. The first phase concerns a first data-scan between the PIVAadministration and the situation in practice.

The second phase regards an in-depth study into the accuracy, actuality an completeness of the personal administration and is scheduled to commence in September 2019. The study will be carried out by civil servants from Statia’s Civil Registry Office supported by their Census colleagues from Aruba, Bonaire, St. Maarten and The Netherlands.

It is important that St. Eustatius has its personal administration in order. The benefits include overall quality improvement, which will guarantee services sufficient trust using these data.

On the basis of a short questionnaire interviewers will visit all residential
addresses on St. Eustatius. It is the objective to ensure that all adult residents are correctly registered. Persons who cannot be reached will receive a request to contact the Census Office immediately.

Residents with questions will be able to consult the project leader on a daily basis, between 9 and 10AM, at Raboek de Sanchez Pacheco’s office located at the Cottageweg 6.
