Report: GovGuam needs more fed input
by Mindy Aguon
The latest Government Accountability Office report reiterates many local leaders' concerns that the federal government must provide more information on what the island will need in terms of labor for the military buildup.
The GAO recommends that the Department of Defense assist the Government of Guam to properly train and prepare its future workforce to effectively compete for permanent federal, civilian and DoD contractor support positions.
The Office also recommended that the Secretary of Defense develop a process for sharing updated information on a routine basis until the buildup is complete.
Specifically, concerns were also raised that DoD must provide information and support to allow for adjustments to be made for workforce training programs.
