Guam - Ten newly purchased 84-passenger school buses that were the center of a protest filed at the OPA's office has been dismissed.
According to the OPA website, as of last week, both parties reached a settlement on the condition that both acknowledge and admit that the invitation for bid was flawed and that Triple J is correct that the buses received by the government did not meet the specs listed in the bid, specifically side emergency door exits.
As we've been reporting, Morrico Enterprises won the bid to purchase the buses for DPW . Upon arrival, Triple J noted deficiencies.
Despite the ongoing protest, DPW continued to use the vehicles to transport over 30-thousand of the island's public and private school students.
