New York puts M/A-COM on notice over radio network

New York State has taken a preliminary step toward possibly revoking a $2 billion contract to build a statewide interoperable radio network, the New York Times reports.

The State Office for Technology issued a letter of default on Aug. 29 to M/A-COM, a Lowell, Mass.-based unit of Tyco Electronics, in which it gives the company 45 days to remediate problems with the system. In the default letter, the state cites 19 significant contractual deficiencies.

Tyco Electronics disputed the state's assessment of its work, according to the newspaper. The company issued a statement indicating that it had "met or exceeded" the requirements under the contract and was working with the state to resolve "a few remaining" problems.
