Guam - The Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency will soon be moving out of the two buildings it occupies in Tiyan. Director Colonel Dennis Santo Tomas says the agency will streamline operations by moving into the integrated Air Cargo Facility on the other side of Tiyan and in the airport.
He says this will result in centralizing personnel and saving money, telling KUAM News, "By doing that we'll be able to reduce our costs overall and hopefully re-position those costs savings so we can increase our personnel that we need for the buildup and the population boom."
Santo Tomas adds the agency is also working with the Bureau of Information Technology to modernize its computer system to ensure efficiency and more communication between the two ports of entry. The Guam Environmental Protection Agency is expected to move into customs current Tiyan offices once the move is complete.
