Guam - The U.S. Department of Education is currently reviewing the pick made by its local counterpart when it comes to choosing a third-party agency for its Guam counterpart. DOE Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood says while the department has chosen the most qualified, USDOE still needs to review paperwork before making an award.

She told KUAM News, "They did communicate with me this morning, but I think they're going to need a couple of days to actually give us their final approval. And once that's done and we receive word, we will notify those who were not selected and we will announce who the third-party will be."

Bretania Underwood says they're currently drafting a contract. While a total of six submitted proposals, only four met all requirements.  More than $60 million have been held up from the consolidated grant to cover several federal programs.
