Guam - The Education Financial Supervisory Commission continues to monitor the finances of the Department of Education. The group, whose members come from the Bureau of Budget & Management Research, the Department of Administration, the Guam Office of Public Accountability and the Office of Budget, issued a watch and warning for DOE because in certain instances it was spending more than it should have been.
Of particular concern was DOE's expenses for overtime. Tuesday was the deadline for the agency to submit to a corrective financial recovery plan.
DOE deputy superintendent Taling Taitano told KUAM News, "This is a small amount of overtime that was incurred to do some year end processing and basically we have sufficient money in our personnel accounts and we just have to reprogram the amounts to cover the overtime. So that should hopefully resolve that situation."
The Commission is expected to meet again Friday.
