Tamuning, Guam – The Civil Division of the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) continues to educate government of Guam agencies on the often complex process of procurement with its second workshop titled Creating and Maintaining a Good and Complete Procurement Record.
Workshop 503 will be held at the Office of Civil Defense, Guam Homeland Security in Agana Heights tomorrow, December 04, 2013, from 8:45a.m. to 11a.m., followed by an open forum for questions.
Assistant attorneys general (AAG) from the OAG’s Civil/Solicitors Division conducted Workshop 101: Acquiring Professional Services Through Request for Proposals to over 19 govGuam agencies and 170 employees beginning in early 2012.
“Many of the agencies that attended Workshop 101 expressed a specific interest in procurement record-keeping and how to create one; who should control the record and where to keep it; and what the law pertinent law says about record-keeping for procurement,” said AAG Deborah Rivera.
“Their feedback and our desire to streamline the process for their agencies and our Office is what we created and built Workshop 503 on. We will arm them with knowledge to execute proper procurement record-keeping and things related to it,” she continued.
Assistant Attorneys General Laura Mooney, Deborah Rivera, James Wade and John Weisenberger will also discuss the importance of maintaining a complete procurement record, the consequences of failing to keep a complete record, what to produce in the event of a protest or appeal, and what records are confidential.
“If we can continue to further educate government departments on the procurement process, it will help to save valuable resources like time, money and staff,” said Attorney General Leonardo M. Rapadas.
