DISID programs expiring Thursday

Guam - Another government service is set to expire. On Thursday DISID's key programs that provide support to persons with severe disabilities and their caregivers will terminate. Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz has written a letter to Acting Governor Ray Tenorio urging him to expedite the RFP process to mitigate the disruption in services.

Although certain RFPs have been issued, the process hasn't concluded leaving 67 clients who normally are provided services under these key programs without them. While the administration finalizes the RFP process, the vice speaker is asking that in the interim the administration ensures there's no disruption in service.

Governor's acting chief of staff Rose Ramsey said, "We've been in discussions with DISID and Catholic Social Services throughout the day and CSS has been a great deal of help.  We are currently working through these issues and we assure DISID's consumers and their families that services will not be interrupted."
