Guam - There are new developments to report involving the military buildup, as Naval Facilities Engineering Command announced new amendments to its Government of Japan-funded Multiple Military Contract or (Mamizu MACC). In May an amendment was made that placed the bid submission deadline on hold indefinitely.
According to the latest revision, the new deadline for submission is June 21. Other changes to the Mamizu MACC include the portions of the contract related to the construction of a waterfront headquarters building, lessening the time to exercise construction options and a revision to the contractor workforce housing and logistics and material management requirements. In terms of the specifics behind these changes, they were not readily available online.
The awarding of the Mamizu MACC will mark the biggest military contract that would be awarded by the Navy. It's worth $3 billion. The way the contract works is the Navy will select between three to seven contractors, who will then compete against one another for the multiple projects included in this proposal.
There is no official word on when the Mamizu MACC will actually be awarded.
