Company Loses Contract Awarded by Sundquist Administration

Posted:

A company started by a friend of former Gov. Don Sundquist has lost its multimillion-dollar contract to provide Internet services to Tennessee schools.

That came after the Bredesen administration put the state contract up for bids.

And BellSouth convinced the state that it could provide the same service for less money than Education Networks of America.

ENA, as it's known, was started by Sundquist friend Al Ganier.

Ganier is currently awaiting trial on charges that he tried to obstruct a federal investigation into that contract.

That federal probe was prompted by NewsChannel 5's "Friends in High Places" investigation.
