NAVFAC Marianas extends deadline for RFEI

Guam - The Naval Facilities Engineering Command has extended the deadline for interested entities to submit a letter of interest for the lease of 49 acres of industrial real property at the former Naval Ship Repair Facility.  NAVFAC Asset Manager Business Line Coordinator Bill Neville says at least three parties have expressed interest since the request for expression of interest was issued one month ago. 

He says a tour for interested parties has been planned for December 9.  While there have been concerns about what will happen to the local workforce employed by Guam Industrial Services, (dba, "The Guam Shipyard"), Neville says he expects that any future tenant would need a local workforce.

"Well, I certainly believe that it is going to maintain shipyard capabilities and there is a required need for skilled workers at a shipyard, so our assumption would be that whoever wins this bid would still have to hire skilled workers," he said.

Neville said if the Government of Guam is interested in submitting a letter of interest, they can.  The Guam Economic Development Authority says that the Government of Guam's lease and GEDA's sublease to the Guam Shipyard expire in 2012 - the same year NAVFAC is looking to begin a new lease for the shipyard.
