Guam - The Department of Education's school administrators are receiving federal grant management training this week. Training instructor Sefton Boyars, a former inspector general for USDOE, says they are going over internal control to ensure proper procedures are being followed in the classroom. He says the administrators will also be learning how to become an effective organization as well as prevent equipment from being stolen.

He told KUAM News, "The education department in Guam has had some difficulties over the years in complying the federal rules and regulations and so this particular training is being sponsored by the federal government to assist the Guam public schools to be able to meet the various requirements that the federal government places on them when they get when they get grants."

The training comes on the heels of the award of a third-party fiduciary agent for DOE. The department is currently negotiating the terms of the contract with the attorney general, and expects to make the final award by the end of this month.
