Guam - The Department of Administration has already paid some census enumerators and they're working on getting paychecks to the rest by this Friday. DOA Administrative Services Officer Dan Hattig says there is still some paperwork being processed for 300 enumerators who started work on the 22nd of last month.
Because their GG1 forms were turned in last minute, enumerators didn't get paid last pay period for the one week they worked because the Bureau of Budget Management & Research didn't have enough time to process their paperwork. Officials are hopeful that will be done in time for this Friday's payday.
Meanwhile, Census Media Specialist Yolanda Elliott says BBMR will have more processing to do, as the agency is in the process of bringing an additional 100 enumerators on board.
