The Army Corps originally awarded the contract to DS3 Enterprises Inc., of Central Islip. But six days after the Jan. 25 announcement, the Army Corps suspended the contract due to a protest from one of the bidders.
An Army Corps spokesman said earlier this week that the protest was found to have merit, and the nine bids for the project were then re-evaluated by a new panel. The panel then determined that DS3 Enterprises did not meet the criteria for the project, which requires removing and hauling 9,650 tons of debris off the barrier island by the end of March. -- Candice Ruud
