Guam - The Department of Education is working on getting bids and requests for proposals out for project in order to properly spend millions of dollars in stimulus funds.  DOE Procurement and Supply Administrator Brian Mafnas says he's been working with different division heads to set timelines and priorities on which projects need to be going out soon.

He says DOE needs to ensure specifications are properly laid out so everything remains in compliance.  He says one of the biggest projects is to upgrade science, technology, engineering and math curriculum and instructional resources, telling KUAM News, "The bigger ones is the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We're finalizing the documents right now before we send them out. That's one of the bigger projects we have right now."

All projects over $500,000 need to go through the Attorney General's Office for review before an RFP is sent out.
