Guam - Triple J Motors says it will take about 60 days to bring ten Police Interceptor vehicles to Guam. The custom vehicles were ordered and manufactured after Triple J received the purchase orders.
While the Guam Police Department struggles to respond to emergencies due to the lack of working vehicles, a protest has delayed the acquisition of ten custom Police Interceptors. Earlier this week Police Colonel Maurice Sayama expressed concerns that the process would take some six months to get the cars on the streets.
Triple J filed a protest arguing that GSA erroneously determined that they failed to wage a timely protest. After the custom vehicles had been manufactured, GSA canceled the bid after awarding the contract but triple j maintains they didn't give any reasons why it chose to do so other than concerns over a brochure for the 2013-2014 models. The company says the limited warranty was the same for both models.
Triple J Motors maintains it is exhausting every administrative remedy available in order to resolve the matter quickly.
