Guam - KUAM has confirmed that a major multiple military contract that is to be funded by the government of Japan for the development of infrastructure and facilities for the marines relocation from Okinawa to Guam has been postponed indefinitely. According to NAVFAC Pacific the latest amendment postpones the proposal due date indefinitely for the contracts also known as the Mamizu Multiple Award Construction Contract for Government of Japan- funded for projects for sites in Guam.

According to the MACC proposal the marine's relocation projects include new construction of a variety of facilities including utilities/infrastructure, barracks/dormitories, administrative facilities, dining facilities, quality of life facilities, fire/police stations, and other base development facilities.

The solicitation also includes two seed projects. The first consists of one vertical, design-bid-build construction project or a Waterfront Headquarters Operations Building on Naval Base, Guam, which will construct a new two-level facility including office spaces, conference/classroom, open bay billeting, dining area, control tower, open mustering facilities and a small equipment maintenance area, and supporting site and utility work.

The second seed project consists of one horizontal, design-build construction project,  Finegayan Utilities & Site Improvements - Phase 2, which will provide utilities infrastructure consisting of electrical (distribution and street lighting), water, wastewater, communications, road and pavement, ground improvements, site preparation and environmental remediation.

NAVFAC Pacific is the Department of Defense's Executive Agent for construction on Guam and is the designated design and construction agent for the Realignment Roadmap associated with the rebasing of approximately 8,000 marines and their dependents from Okinawa to Guam.

As we've been reporting speculation mounted surrounding the March earthquake/ tsunami in Japan having the probability of hampering funding for the marines relocation. The government of Japan had agreed to fund $6 billion out of the projected $10b price tag for the relocation effort.
