Feds/DOE/3rd party negotiating contract terms

by Michele Catahay

Guam - The Department of Education continues to hold conference calls with the U.S. Department of Education and the firm selected to act as a third-party agent for the local education agency. Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood says negotiations are ongoing until a contract is finalized, saying, "Actually, there are just a set of tasks that are being discussed about what is expected with certain timelines. That's where we are at."

Bretania Underwood says she remains hopeful to have the third-party on board by next month. In the meantime, she says financial services and the Procurement Division are looking forward to having the expertise to make changes in the department.
