Guam - Things are about to cool off at Department of Education schools islandwide. This follows the purchase of more than 2,100 new air conditioning units that started arriving on island.
DOE facilities and maintenance manager Billy Cruz says they've started installation at Ordot-Chalan Pago with Simon Sanchez High School to follow next month.
The A/C units were the subject of a protest at the Guam OPA's office last month. The protest put close to $7.5 million in ARRA funds in jeopardy as the funds were set to expire. Thanks to a settlement between J&B Modern Tech and protesting bidder JMI Edison, DOE was able to move forward with procurement.
