Guam - Naval Facilities Engineering Command says now that the Programmatic Agreement has been signed, it paves the way for the Navy to proceed with construction projects locally in support of the relocation of U.S. Marines. But NAVFAC officials clarify the construction will not proceed immediately.

It will commence only after the final phase of the contractors design work is completed, submitted and approved.  According to Joint Guam Program Office Director Joseph Ludovici, the signing of the PA is an important milestone and that over a billion dollars in funding provided by the U.S. Government and Government of Japan has been secured thus far for the military construction projects.   

Seven projects have been identified for this year.
