DOE giving RFP bidders more time to respond

by Michele Catahay

Guam - The Department of Education will extend the deadline for interest companies to respond to a request for proposal for a third-party fiduciary agent. Deputy Superintendent of Finance and Administrative Services Taling Taitano says while proposals were supposed to be due on April 30, requests have been made to extend the due date up until May 5.

"We haven't put out an official word, yet as there's another question that we're trying to get answered. Hopefully by the end of the day, that'll be posted and sent out to all the perspective vendors," Taitano said.  She also added that she's still hoping to select and finalize a contract by the end of May and have someone in place by June.

DOE needs the third-party agent in order to drawdown funds. Summer school may be affected if cash isn't available for the program.
