SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The city of Sioux Falls won’t publicly release which companies have submitted bids to make sure flawed paneling is protecting the city’s new $117 million events center.

The Argus Leader reports that the Sioux Falls Public Works Department has received four submissions from companies vying for the review work.

But city officials won’t name the companies yet or say when a selection will be made.

Sioux Falls Purchasing Manager Scott Rust tells the newspaper that the list of bidders for the request for proposals is public information but won’t be shared publicly until after the city sends out a news release of its intent to award.

The flawed paneling on the Denny Sanford Premier Center was the subject of a city settlement with five construction companies in 2015.
