by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - The Government of Guam could face losing out on more federal dollars if they do not correct several deficiencies noted in a recent Guam Office of Public Accountability audit.  OPA Audit Supervisor Rodalyn Marquez says the highlights does show that for the first time in the history of the island's public sector there are zero questioned costs for Fiscal Year 2009, and GovGuam was able to reduce the deficiencies from 21 to 10.

Still, Marquez says of the government does not correct the remaining issues then it could stop any further issuance of federal funds.  "They deal with procurement issues, problems with eligibility requirements, they didn't have the proper physical elements in place, they also had two issues related to ARRA funds in which they didn't properly monitor or have the correct test procedures," she said.

The audit also shows that at least $2.9 million of the $39.4 awarded in American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funds.
