Tiny energy firm awarded $  300m Puerto Rico electricity contract bars government from auditing agreementThe Federal Emergency Management Agency says it has “significant concerns” with the process that led to a small electric company in Montana gaining a major contract to rebuild Puerto Rico’s energy grid, just as news has emerged that the contract has a no-audit clause. FEMA says that it was not involved in the decision to award the $ 300 million contract to between the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) and Whitefish Energy, a small electric company with just two fulltime employees located in Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s hometown: Whitefish, Montana.
