Cruz calls oversight on state of GovGuam's IT

Guam - Hoping to get answers on the Government of Guam's state of information technology and systems integration, Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz is calling for an oversight with the Department of Administration's newly-created Office of Technology.

Cruz says he's most concerned over the continued failure of the department's reporting system which has occurred since the summer. "And we haven't received a revenue report for several months. And we were blind when we did the budget, and I want to find out what's taking so long, it's been almost three years now since we've been in this situation and it's just gotten worse rather than better," said Cruz.

Cruz is further seeking information on the Department of Administration contingency plan pending ongoing protest against the government's telecommunications contract. He hopes to also get answers on attempts to possibly upgrade the island's medical information technology. The oversight was set for this Friday but Cruz says it will be postponed until November at the request of DOA as the Office of Technology's acting director Joey Manibusan will be off-island.

Director Benita Manglona hopes in that time, the issues Cruz wants addressed will be resolved.
