Guam Public Works clears some debts; still owes more than $1M to employees

Some employees of the Department of Public Works have been waiting 15 years for promised compensation.

For the past three legislative terms, DPW has been the only executive branch agency to report unpaid prior-year obligations quarterly to the Guam Legislature. Other agencies submit their debts annually through detailed budget requests.

Departments also give advance notice of their intent to pay prior-year obligations, which is required under the current budget law. Additionally, that law says these debts can be paid only provided the expense "does not negatively impact the current operational needs" of the agency making the request.

DPW has disclosed it owes $1.1 million to employees as of March 31. The debt includes unpaid overtime compensation, merit bonuses and successful appeals of Competitive Wage Act pay adjustments.
