Guam - While negotiations continue with International Bridge Corporation to construct the new John F. Kennedy High School in Upper Tumon, the Office of Public Accountability received some reassurances that the project is on track.  Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks tells KUAM News that she had a productive meeting with officials from IBC, DPW, GEDA, and DOE this week to iron out some concerns with the new JFK High project.

However, she still has some reservations with the 30-year maintenance portion of the contract.  "The amount of maintenance that is being proposed is quite significant; it takes your breath away and I can understand where DPW as well as DOE is coming from, we don't want to have a situation like Southern High where it deteriorated," she said.

Brooks has asked all officials involved to crunch the numbers to ensure that they can get the best maintenance deal for JFK High.
