OPA assesses GovGuam procurement

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Lending to speculation that it's "who you know" in government in order to do business… the Guam OPA finds that small purchase procurement limits competition, stifles fairness, and is inherently inefficient and costly. According to an audit out today, between October 2007 to September 2010 small purchase procurement nearly doubled. The OPA believes GovGuam would save more money and would allow for more competition amongst vendors if it consolidated its purchases. The OPA cited GSA for failing to provide accountability and oversight over GovGuam's small purchase procurements. One of the biggest violators: the Mayors Council of Guam. Out of 20 tested purchase orders issued by the Council none complied with Guam Procurement Law.  To read the audit in full detail logon to Guamopa.org.
