Clearinghouse retrieves critical data

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam State Clearinghouse, which is overseen by the Lieutenant Governor's Office, is critical in finding sources of funding to help the Government of Guam. When former lieutenant governor Mike Cruz's staff left, they evidently took all the information on federal grants with them.

Former clearinghouse administrator Roland Villaverde returned to Adelup last Friday to provide the information he stored on his personal computer. His successor, Eric Palacios, says the information provided from Villaverde combined with information from their website, the Department of Administration and the Bureau of Budget Management & Research has helped tremendously.

Palacios added that so far they've got information for a technical assistance grant application for the Guam Memorial Hospital originally submitted after last April, a request for extension from Public Health for a grant that expires at the end of this month, as well as a request of funds for GHURA.

"It really took a concerted effort for this office to obtain what it needed to perform its mandated duties and not to mention to obtain information data records that should have been readily available and accessible on Day 1," he said.
