Guam - Department of Public Works Director Andy Leon Guerrero says his agency will be working with the Guam Economic Development Authority to move forward with negotiations with International Bridge Corporation to build a new campus for the John F. Kennedy High School. Last week, DPW was instructed by Lieutenant Governor Mike Cruz to move forward.

He says GEDA may have to go off-island again to focus on the financial component of the request for proposal. As for the $19 million in question by the Guam Community Improvement Foundation, Leon Guerrero says DPW has already responded with an answer to the Office of the Public Auditor.  "Before our former director left, Larry Perez, he had addressed that concern that the OPA had with the $19 million and she was satisfied with the response."

Leon Guerrero also added, "Right now, everything is proprietary. So until an award had been used and a notice to proceed has been given, everything remains proprietary."

Leon Guerrero says they're still targeting a ground breaking ceremony for June or July with hopes to have the campus complete by next school year.
