Mayors Council disagrees with OPA

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Mayors Council of Guam is taking exception to the Guam Office of Public Accountability naming it as one of the biggest violators of the Government of Guam's small purchase procurement requirements. The OPA noted in audit that out of 20 purchase orders that were tested none complied with Guam procurement law specifically obtaining three separate quotes from potential vendors.

MCOG executive director Angel Sablan disagrees, telling KUAM News, "Now what's been going on through the years this is from the guidance of GSA is that if you put out three quotations and they come back to you, some of them come back from a vendor that gives you a price, some come back as a 'no quote', and some come back and says,

'We don't accept government P.O. [sic].'"

The OPA says the MCOG should have gotten additional quotations after receiving those responses such as "no quote".
