Guma’ Hustisia moves forward with projects


The Guma’ Hustisia has issued a request for qualifications, seeking the services of a mechanical engineering consulting services that would help the CNMI Judiciary fix its mold and air-conditioning problem.

All qualified vendors and contractors in the region are encouraged to submit proposals.

A committee of evaluators from the Judiciary, the Department of Finance, and Department of Public Works will make the selection of awardees for the various projects.

With the request for qualifications, issued on Aug. 1, 2018, the Judiciary hopes to move forward with the procurement process to evaluate and fix the Guma’ Hustisia’s air-conditioning system and mold problems.

“I am thankful for the understanding and support of Gov. [Ralph DLG] Torres and members of the House and Senate for securing and appropriating these funds,” said Chief Justice Alexandro C. Castro. “The Judiciary is grateful for the public’s patience as we continue to pursue efficiency in delivering judicial services.”

The Guma’ Hustisia has been closed to the public since March 16, 2018, when the air conditioning system broke down, causing temperatures to rise and adding moisture to the air which contributed to the mold growth.

On June 15, 2018, Torres signed into law an appropriation bill that includes $7 million for the Guma’ Hustisia’s mold remediation, air conditioning system, and temporary and permanent alternate site projects.

The Judiciary continues to provide judicial services at alternate sites.

The Judiciary opened the Guma’ Hustisia’s front exterior windows for Accounting Service Unit/Cashier, Commonwealth Recorder’s Office, Office of the Clerk of the Superior Court, and Law Revision Commission.

Other agencies that help the CNMI Judiciary continue providing services are the U.S. District Court for the NMI, Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center, Department of Public Safety, and Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Office. (PR)
