Guam - The Attorney General's Office is investigating allegations that have surfaced regarding the procurement of off-island medical referral services. In a statement issued today, the office says it has not received the contract between the Government of Guam and Attorney Tom Fisher, who was awarded the $540,000 a year contract. 

A protest was filed by former Guam Medical Referral Office director Peter Alexcis Ada, who alleges his sealed bid had been opened.  The attorney general clarifies that in any contracts or procurements of $500,000 or more, the office or its designee must be involved in all phases of the solicitation and procurement process. 

As a result of the reports surrounding the award of the services, the AG's Office is concerned about possible non-compliance with the law and is investigating.
