The Commonwealth Public Utilities Commission has pushed its deadline for a request for proposals seeking consulting services to next January, according to CPUC commissioner Dave Guerrero.
Guerrero said that four have submitted proposals but only three paid for the registering fee.
“One of the three is Georgetown Consulting Group,” he said.
“We feel that it is in the best interest of the CNMI and the public to extend the deadline,” he added.
Georgetown’s contract with CPUC expired in September this year.
Georgetown has been the CPUC’s consultant since 2007 and has helped CPUC through numerous consulting services.
Guerrero said it is time for CPUC to have a new consultant but Georgetown has pretty much been doing great for the past several years.
Commonwealth Utilities Corp. executive director Alan Fletcher said they are interested in the matter because whoever becomes the consultant for CPUC will be working closely with CUC.
