Guam - If a protest surrounding the procurement of new office space for the Department of Revenue & Taxation is not resolved by the end of the month, the agency can engage in a holdover provision in its current lease. DRT Director John Camacho says the department doesn't want to move out of its current Barrigada location in an effort to continue their collection efforts.

A protest was filed in relation to the procurement of new office space for the department. Said Camacho, "It's the best interest of the government to continue its operation to serve the taxpayers and to continue the collections efforts, administration of this collection of all taxes." He added, "As you know, the core functions of the department is to provide, you can go through Motor Vehicles, Driver License, etc. and we should continue that for the people of Guam."

A preliminary hearing for the protest is expected to be heard on Thursday. Camacho says once the matter is resolved with the office of public accountability, the department will know whether they will stay in the Barrigada location or submit another RFP for office space.
