Guam - The investigation into the Guam Power Authority's PMO spending is complete and the Public Utilities Commission has issued their order. Consolidated Commission on Utilities chairman Simon Sanchez told KUAM News, "The PUC found that we did not manage the spending of PMO in their view properly in terms of what we said we would use them to do and the projects we would use them for and the projects they actually worked on."

The agency was authorized $4.4 million for two projects but the way the money was spent was not in accordance with PUC order while the consulting work for the development of liquid natural gas plan was authorized the engineering work to repair the Temis power plant was not. Sanchez says in the future GPA may only use a PMO for the authorized intended purposes. He adds that the PUC has not approved additional money for the PMO and has requested additional information.
