Guam - It's a long time coming. More than a year after Governor Eddie Calvo signed the Secure Our Schools Act into law in April 2013, the General Services Agency is finally releasing the request for proposal.

DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez told KUAM News, "We're happy to report that we were made aware that GSA has finally put out the invitation for bid for our school security equipment, so we're very happy because it's been a long time coming."

This comes following several incidents of school break-ins last year. The RFP would provide security systems including surveillance cameras and alarms to DOE schools.

Fernandez said collaboration between senators, the Governor's Office, GSA, and the Attorney General's Office finally brought this effort to fruition.
