March 30, 2014- DNAinfo reports, “After a review of agency records from July 2007 to April 2013, the EDC failed to ensure contractors’ affidavits about conflicts of interest were completed on time during project bids, didn’t document follow-ups on contractors who had potential conflicts, and allowed contracts to begin without getting contractors cleared by the city’s Department of Investigation, among other things, the report said.”

Of note, the EDC was involved in contracting out Pier A to be managed by the Poulakakos restaurant group.
