GSA has concerns over Port's PMC choice

Guam - The General Services Agency had concerns over the Port Authority's award of a performance management contract.  Harbor Centre filed an appeal, alleging the Port authority violated Guam law and jeopardized the integrity of the procurement process.

During a procurement appeal hearing today GSA employee Pete San Nicolas, who observed the bid rating, was questioned about concerns he had with the evaluation process because the selection committee had been allowed to take their bid packets home.

"The reason why we have the evaluation committee members in the room with government officials present, you know, they can discus general information, general terms," he said.  "But we try not to let specific committee members influence other members on how they should vote."

San Nicolas testified that the Attorney General's Office had indicated it was okay for the bid packets to be taken home, even though he said the practice has never been allowed in the past.  Additionally, it was pointed out that the GSA never sent any letters to the Port expressing concerns over the way the RFP was being handled.

An opinion on the appeal is expected at a later time.
