Temp phone numbers issued for three Public Health sites

Guam - In the past week, island residents may have had trouble getting in contact with the Department of Public Health as it's phone lines are currently under repair by GTA TeleGuam. Public Health director James Gillan says a week ago an emergency procurement was issued for telephone services after the General Services Agency terminated the award to Pacific Data Services.

Gillan apologizes to the public for any inconvenience, saying, "So it's very inconvenient for clients because they're trying to call in saying they have food stamps or WIC and they call our number here but because this number is so busy, they get frustrated so we're trying to develop in at least each facility several sets of numbers where we can at least tell them to call these numbers and we'll try to get you to the person or the program that you need."

Meanwhile, according to a termination of services letter issued to PDS by GSA acting chief procurement officer Robert Kono last week, pursuant to the bid terms and conditions, PDS was required to fully transfer the wire lines 'telephone services' from GTA to its company within 10 days. Kono states PDS had failed to fully transfer all of the telephone services. He further states that GSA has determined that PDS is in violation of the bid award resulting in the termination of the award to both Public Health and the Guam Fire Department.
