GEC preparing fifth invitation for big for tabulation gear

Guam - The Guam Election Commission met last night and changed its latest bid proposal for new tabulation equipment. GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan says the fourth draft of its invitation for bid was prepared to accommodate different types  of election equipment of either a poll counter placed at every precinct or updated central tabulators that are placed at a central station, the latter of which GEC currently uses.  She says concern however was raised as the procurement process will only allow the GEC to pick the lowest responsive bidder without the option to select between either machines.

"Now as of last night, the Commission has made a decision to tailor the invitation for bid for central tabulators because at this juncture central tabulators is incorporated into the election process that we have on Guam and the transition would be more fluid and it will be less time to transition to central tabulators versus poll counters," she said.

Commissioners will receive the fifth and latest draft of the IFB early next week and will be up for approval when the GEC reconvenes next Thursday.
