Guam - The Freedom of Information Advisory Council's Subcommittee on Open Government Complaints met this afternoon to discuss a complaint by University of Guam professor Ron McNinch.

McNinch tells KUAM that his request stems on whether the Open Government Law applies to the UOG Faculty Senate, saying, "In the history of the faculty senate, they hardly ever met in secret and suddenly they start meeting in secret behind closed doors on particular, on September 19, 2013, they met behind closed doors and voted and talked about me and voted about me in a secret meeting and I want the government to give an opinion on that."

McNinch says its important for the University Faculty Senate to be more open and transparent. McNinch adds he had hoped the University Faculty Senate instead had the internal ability to address this issue without having to go with some other outside party. The subcommittee addressed the matter today and set an August 1st deadline for McNinch to submit his documents. The UOG Faculty Senate will then be given by September 1st to respond. The subcommittee will then meet on September 15th to address the complaint again.
