Guam - The Department of Corrections anticipates putting out the request for interest and request for proposal for a new prison facility by next month. DepCor Director J.B. Palacios says two additional organizations have showed interest for the design and construction of the prison - Core Tech and the Guam Community Improvement Foundation.

Palacios adds that he has been assured the matter will be discussed at the next legislative session, saying, "Not only is the chair of the Committee on Public Safety, but also the committee itself and members are agreeable and prepared to issue the legislation requiring or enabling us to go ahead and proceed with the RFI process."

Palacios says the new prison is estimated to cost about $37 million.
