Port General Manager Rory J. Respicio signed the Notice to Proceed Monday morning for California Pacific Technical Services (CalPac) to begin the work to replace the Port’s CCTV and Access Control Systems.

The signing followed this morning’s Kickoff Meeting for the $1,221,418.00 project during which parties discussed project timelines, safety guidelines, staging sites, permitting, and other critical matters related to the work that will be performed.

This project is for the acquisition, installation, and upgrade of the Port’s CCTV and Access Control Systems to enhance maritime and security screening and monitoring. It is being funded through a combination of Port and USDHS / FEMA PSGP and U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Maritime Administration (MARAD) Grant Cooperative Program funds.

“Our progress at the Port continues with this crucial project which will help ensure we protect our Port and our borders,” Port General Manager Rory J. Respicio said. “This work being done is in line with Governor Lou Leon Guerrero and Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio’s commitment to modernize our Port and protect our borders.”

Respicio added that the Port will ensure that the Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency receives full access to the CCTV system.

“By giving Customs full access to our CCTV systems they will be able to view at their own time and in their own control room so that their critical operations for drug surveillance and interdiction remain unimpeded,” he said.

The installation of the Port’s CCTV and Access Control Systems is anticipated to be completed by June of next year.
