A company requested review of contracts awarded by two Economic Development Administration grantees, alleging that the awardees were ineligible because of their failure to have 10 percent of the contract work performed by a minority business enterprise. This matter is the subject of conflicting U.S. District Court opinions and other litigation and will not be considered until the litigation is resolved.
