Guam - Federal officials are on island this week touring the Port Authority of Guam. According to general manager Joanne Brown, the Department of Defense Inspector General personnel were given an overall briefing of the Port's current activities and construction particularly on DoD-funded projects.

"It allows them the opportunity have assurance that they're actually tangibly seeing how the money they provided to us either through grant or Department of Defense administered by MARAD to address the expansion of the Port to accommodate the anticipated military growth, I think it's important to see that that money is properly invested and accounted for," she told KUAM News.

Officials from the Department of the Interior and Office of Budget Management will visit the Port tomorrow and will receive a similar briefing.
