Guam - A handful of bills were heard by lawmakers this afternoon including legislation aimed at amending the procurement law. Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks said, "Bills such as 224 are necessary to fill the void that will exists until the Procurement Advisory Council gains more traction and increases the speed at which it compels its recommendations."
The reform of the Guam procurement law will be addressed in a series of four bills. The measure's author, Senator Tom Ada, says Bill 224 specifically addresses the back end of the procurement process found in articles nine and twelve which focuses on the legal and contractional remedies.
