The Maine Public Utilities Commission awarded FairPoint Communications a $32 million contract to upgrade the state's 911 emergency call system for a third time Monday after two appeals from competing bidders. In September, the state's Bureau of General Services rescinded a contract with Maine Natural Gas to build a Windsor-to-Augusta natural gas pipeline. Companies in both battles have contested the fairness of their respective evaluation processes.
