A new government data center is proposed for the campus of the University of Guam. The government intends to construct a two-story, 15,000-square-foot data center/Office of Information Technology facility. The endeavor will see an investment of $15 million.

The report notes that the 1992-built Computer Center is the University's primary campus data center but lacks the efficacy and security of modern data centers.

"The new data center/Office of Information Technology Computer Center will provide a modern data center, main central campus technology support, and the primary computer lab resources for UOG," according to the report. "It will be a data center that content providers, government agencies, and other entities with different security requirements can utilize to better the Internet experience for its Guam users and the Marianas region."
