Guam - Requests for proposal and contracts under the Department of Education have been moving along a lot quicker. According to DOE Supply and Procurement Administrator Brian Mafnas, the recent appointments of their legal counsels to serve as assistant attorney generals has allowed projects to go through faster than before.

As KUAM News reported, the Attorney General's Office had said it didn't have enough staff to review all contracts and RFPs totaling over $500,000. Mafnas says the new appointments are helpful.

"When we complete the negotiations, it goes to the legal counsel sends a request to the AG's Office; they come back with the appointment and it goes through the checklist, then back to the AG's Office. We crank it back to them and then it's forwarded to the governor," said Mafnas.
