Guam launches Office of Public Accountability phone app

412

Public Auditor Benjamin J.F. Cruz announced Sunday the launch of the Office of Public Accountability’s (OPA) mobile app for iOS and Android devices.

Officials say after a couple of years of trial and error, the OPA is finally bringing its work to residents’ phones, tablets, or smart watches. OPA’s app was designed to sync up with its website, www.opaguam.org, but still provide a user-friendly and professional experience, according to the Department.

When OPA’s website is updated, the app is automatically updated in real-time.

“At last count, OPA’s current website hosts over 5,000 PDF files and 200 MP3 audio files.  The PDF files consist of numerous performance and financial audits, citizen-centric reports, procurement appeals filings, and government records.  The audio files come from a multitude of agencies that submit their board meeting recordings to our office,” said Cruz.

“Now, with this app, you can read an audit report or listen to a recording of a board meeting right in the palm of your hand whether you are in Pennsylvania or in Piti.”

You can visit the OPA website at www.opaguam.org to download the App or search for Guam OPA in your app store.

To download it for iOS devices, go to https://apps.apple.com/us/app/id1530873215.

To download it for Android devices, visit the Google Play store at

“As our office is always looking to improve the delivery of our work, this app does just that, and it was done at no extra cost to the Government of Guam,”  said Cruz.
