ALBANY, Ga. (AP) - Marine Corps officials in Albany say more than 100 contract employees have been blocked from working because of a dispute over the contract their company was awarded.

Marine Corps Logistics Base spokesman Colie Young said in a statement Thursday that 127 Prime Tech International, Inc. contractors have been issued notices saying that a work stoppage has been implemented while the contract dispute is litigated.

Young says the company was awarded an $8.5 million contract in mid-September for work including inventory, storage, vehicle maintenance and more.

Young says a company that didn’t win the contract is disputing the award and federal acquisition laws require a work stoppage while the Government Accountability Office reviews the issue.

Young says the GAO may take up to 120 days to resolve the dispute.
