Guam - The Department of Education hired a new individual to take over its procurement projects. DOE Supply Management Administrator Brian Mafnas says his experience comes from after seven years of procurement management in the U.S. Coast Guard.

He says the department will continue to work with the General Services Agency to establish a training program to better structure the procurement operations and documentation.  "What I'm looking to do, majority of the issues that we are having is either documentation or just procedures, the way the procurements are being handled, what I looking to do when we do decide to do the transition back under DOE management were going to iron out all our findings and fix whatever we need to fix to bring our department back into compliance," he said.

Mafnas says his position will become permanent after his six-month probation period, and that he will be getting paid about $31,000 annually.
