The US Department of the Interior has announced $US2-million dollars in grants to help the Guam government modernise and digitise its internal inspection systems.

The aim of the modernisation is to help Guam target fraud, waste, abuse, embezzlement and mismanagement in executive branches.

Assistant secretary for Insular and International Affairs, Doug Domenech, said the 2019 fiscal year funding aims to, "streamline and improve services for people on Guam".

It will help with training and the updating of systems at the Guam executive, the office of the chief medical examiner, the public broadcast system, and with the protection of natural resource protection, Mr Domenech said.
