Cruz says numbers don't add up

Guam - Although the Calvo Administration maintains the vice speaker's questions regarding GovGuam's finances should be answered with the submission of a supplemental budget, Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz still plans to hold an oversight hearing with the Department of Administration, because the numbers they've received the agency simply don't add up.

"The last three months they've had some egregious errors in their reporting they've reported that bank fees cost $19 million," he said. "And it seemed a decimal point must be missing and this very last month that had a report of $21 million and sent themselves into a $15 million over-expenditure for the month of March, so I'm trying to figure out why they can't keep their books in order."

DOA director Benita Manglona is off-island and the vice speaker is looking to reschedule the oversight hearing for the week of the 16th. In the meantime, he also plans to ask about the status of tax refunds and the administration's efforts to implement the law regarding the Autonomous Agencies Infrastructure Collections Fund.
