OPA denies HubTec Int's appeal

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The Public Auditor found that the Department of Public Works was justified when it terminated the contract with HubTec International for the Route 2 culverts and slide repair. Earlier this year DPW found HubTec in violation of its contract after the company failed to complete the project on time and attempted to conceal the fact that they were not using American-made rebar at the Cetti Bay slide. 

HubTec also failed to have erosion control measures.  The company appealed the termination of the contract but their appeal was denied as the OPA found there were overwhelming facts to support DPW's termination as the company only completed 28% of the project.

The OPA also found that DPW does not owe for various costs associated with the company's work on the project.
