Guam Shipyard files protest with GAO
Guam - Guam Shipyard has filed a bid protest. According to the Government Accountability Office website the company filed the protest on October 22. Very little information was provided about the protest however it is related to the Department of the Navy, specifically the Military Sealift Command. As we reported it was on October 11 Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo issued a press release announcing the U.S. Navy through the Military Sealift Command awarded Cabras Marine Corporation the contract for Piers Ide Ship Repair Capabilities at the former U.S. Naval Ship Repair Facility. Cabras Marine won the bid over Guam Shipyard which held the contract for years. The current contract with Cabras Marine is for five years with a total dollar amount of about $75 million. According to the GAO website the agency must decide the protest within 100 calendar days, but it does seek to issue a decision in advance of that deadline. Meanwhile Cabras Marine is holding a job fair this weekend at the Guam Premier Outlets.
