OPA to drill-down into IBC's cost analysis

Guam - The Office of Public Accountability has scheduled a meeting this Friday to discuss International Bridge Corporation's proposed maintenance and cost analysis submitted to the OPA late last month. Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks says her office and the Department of Public Works were not able to come to the same conclusions with IBC's cost analysis.

She further states that her office finds that IBC's analysis does not include a clear methodology to justify costs. In addition, it doesn't properly reference survey data or explain the basis for utilizing benchmark figures and doesn't provide cost details for the list of proposed maintenance services, to name a few.

She says the meeting is necessary for GovGuam to make informed decisions relative to the reasonableness of IBC's maintenance cost elements.

The meeting will be held Friday at 9am at the OPA's office in Hagatna.
