Core Tech backs AG’s decision to refuse substantial interest proposal

Core Tech is protesting DPW’s decision to award the $100 million contract to renovate Simon Sanchez High School to the Guam Educational Facilities Foundation.

Guam – Core Tech International is defending Attorney General Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson’s recent decision to stay out of a “substantial interest” proposal that could have the power to throw out the protest CTI filed against the Department of Public Works.

This in response to the governor’s office issuing a press release questioning Anderson’s decision.

You can read the full statement from CTI below:

 

“No one is trying to harm the students of Simon Sanchez. It is regrettable that the Administration allowed Simon Sanchez to fall into such disrepair that parts of it had to be shut down. The Administration seems unconcerned that the taxpayers may end up being on the hook for a $160 million bill, that the Government is paying $16.5 million more for a smaller school, or that DPW ignored clear violations of the Procurement law in awarding the contract. The Attorney General is absolutely right to resist interference and permit the award of the school bid to be reviewed by the independent Office of Public Accountability – that is why we have a Public Auditor, to protect the taxpayers and everyone on Guam. We should all let the Public Auditor do her job.”
