Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service - Monday, January 19, 2009
iqoption The Governor’s Serve Guam! Commission will officially begin it’s first island-wide monthly community volunteer Day of Service this Saturday, January 17th.

Island residents can join any of the multiple island wide projects.   The Guam Volunteer Center of the Governor’s Serve Guam! iqoption Commission will coordinate with non-profits, faith based, government to include schools, villages, and our youth organizations.

The projects will be advertised so our island community volunteers will answer to the call of the organizations who are requesting assistance and also for  community volunteers to directly sign up to volunteer, says Peter Barcinas, Chairman of the Serve Guam! Commission.

Barcinas says this monthly consistency will be particularly important for the non-profits, faith based, government to include schools, villages, and our youth organizations that need dependable, regular support.

"Steady monthly support by our island community volunteers would help non-profits, faith based, government to include schools, villages, and our youth organizations assist in beautification of our villages and will also enhance our overall island appearance as well as being a part of island paradise," he said.

"A few hours volunteered every second Saturday by our island community volunteers  would show our true Hafa Adai! spirit and bring our island community together in a coordinated effort to make our island a better place as well as support the projects of mentoring and tutoring of our children and to lend a hand to those less fortunate," Barcinas said.

Review of Federal Expenditure Trends Jan. 2009
The Guam Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics is pleased to release the  Review of Federal Expenditure Trends Pacific Region Jan 2009.
 
Foreword

Annual Federal Expenditure information for the United States with detail by State, the District of Columbia and U.S. Outlying Areas by expenditure and program category in the Consolidated Federal Funds Reports (CFFR) are available online from the U.S. Census Bureau  for fiscal years 1993 – 2007. 
 
Fiscal Year 2007 federal expenditure data is available and included for Federal Assistance awards including grants, direct and other assistance from the U.S. Census Bureau from the Federal Assistance Award Data System (FAADS).  This is an important source of sometimes more current expenditure information as it is released on a quarterly basis and covers a large component of federal expenditures.  In FY 2007 Federal Assistance comprised 36.5 percent of all federal expenditures and 81.5 percent of Non Defense expenditures on Guam.
 
Reviewing the trends in federal expenditures either in total or by category has been an onerous task as the information is published separately for each fiscal year. This report compiles the information from the fiscal years’ CFFR and FAADS reports, presents it in time series format and from that, reviews the trends in Federal Expenditures.  Our reports for FY 2005 and FY 2006 federal expenditures were limited to expenditures for Guam. This year’s report has been expanded in scope to include United States Insular areas in the Pacific.  These other areas include CNMI, Marshall Islands, Belau and the Federal States of Micronesia.  This expansion is designed to support regional employment and training as well as regional economic development efforts.
 
Funding for this report was provided in part by the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration under the Program Year 2008 Workforce Information Grant.
