PAG managers endorse RFP extension bill

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Port Authority of Guam officials presented favorable testimony on a measure that would allow the agency more time to issue a request for proposal from qualified parties for the management, operation and maintenance for its cargo handling equipment through a performance management contract.  Bill 300 would extend the timeline to award the contract from 120 days to 220.

Chief Prosecutor Phil Tydingco supports the measure, telling KUAM News, "The current procurement law doesn't extend deadlines, because you have to give these agencies flexibilities so there could be policy reasons for why you want to have such deadlines, because you don't want it to dragged on or wanting an agency to unreasonably drag its feet."

Meanwhile, PAG officials say the RFP is currently being reviewed by the Attorney General's Office and is expected to be completed by the end of this month.
