GCC offering coursework on procurement process

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Aimed at alleviating protests that often occur during the procurement process, the Guam Community College has restarted its Fundamentals and Principals of Procurement at the Mangilao campus.

Communications and promotions assistant director Jayne Flores says the purpose of the course is to provide a better understanding of the procurement law and the nuts and bolts of the process. "Because as we all know protests hold up roads, they hold bridges, they hold processes, they hold up air conditioning in the schools, they hold up everything, and if more people are trained properly in how the procurement process will work, there will be less protests and everyone will be happier, our government will run more smoothly," she said.

GCC started the procurement course module over a year ago with over 150 participants from private sector and governmental agencies including several members of the Guam Legislature.  A few more slots are open for this course if signed up by tomorrow. The course runs from today to December 6.
