Guam - Navy Undersecretary Robert Work has assured Governor Eddie Calvo that the Navy will do whatever it can to protect employees working at the Ship Repair Facility.  The Navy put out a request for proposal seeking interested companies to finance, plan, renovate, construct and maintain the 49 acres of the Ship Repair Facility on the naval base.

Undersecretary Work assured the governor that the Navy wants "Guam jobs to stay on Guam" and that the Navy will do what it can to protect the local positions and help the SRF grow as a viable commercial business. Nearly a dozen companies have expressed an interest in the RFP and submissions are due to the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific in Hawaii by March 15. 

GEDA and the Guam Shipyard have been leasing the facility from the Navy, but it expires in October of this year.
