The Government of Guam's D.C.-based consultant on the military buildup, KPMG, presented its preliminary assessment the expansion would have on the island's infrastructure, economy and social issues. The document will be used by the local government in its unified approach to the Congress and the Department of Defense.

KPMG identified $3 billion in funding needs to address all the issues in the point papers, and noted that while GovGuam has identified $1.9 billion to cover this, it still leaves a funding gap of $1.16 billion.
