GUAM - The Department of Public Works may have ten newly purchased 84-passenger school buses parked on their compound, but according to DPW director Carl Dominguez they can't be accepted by the agency due to a protest. General Services Agency advisor Robert Kono confirms GSA received a protest on the bid last week from Triple J.

Kono says the issue will be addressed at GSA and will be up to Triple J as to what action to take next, including the option to appeal to the Office of Public Accountability. As we previously reported, the larger capacity buses were purchased with $1.2 million in Department of Interior funding. The addition is set to bring the DPW school bus fleet up to 138 buses.
