Guerrero Co., Inc., its affiliates and subsidiaries. The opinions expressed are his own and do not constitute legal advice.This paper began as a short outline, prepared for delivery of an introductory procurement seminar to the Guam Chamber of Commerce Small Business Committee in March 2009. It then took on a half-life of its own. This is Ver 1.8, August 18,2009. The author expects it to be tinkered with and revised periodically as substantive or editorial changes are made,new cases and issues arise, or as otherwise deemed the thing to do. You may contact him to obtain the latest version at jngoz@ozemail.com.au. Alternatively, the author intends to upload revisions towww.Scribd.com, where you can search “procurement code primer ” for the various posted versions .
