Guam - Interested parties wanting to provide services as a third-party fiduciary agent for the Department of Education began presentations today at the University of Guam. As KUAM News reported, a total of six packets were submitted to DOE. According to Deputy Superintendent of Finance & Administrative Services Taling Taitano, the agency is hoping to come up with a decision by the end of the week.
"USDOE is required to approve our choice," Taitano said. "We're hoping there's going to be no complications and once they make that approval, we're hoping to get into contract negotiations as quickly as we can get that in place, we're hoping that as soon as June, that we can get them on board."
Taitano says the offerers are required to make presentations locally, with the U.S. Department of Education taking part in discussions through videoconferencing. Presentations will wrap-up on Friday.
