Agency abandons talks with Deloitte for welfare contract [KCRA]
California seems to have learned things the hard way: "An agency responsible for choosing IT consultant Deloitte for a 10-year, half-billion dollar job said Wednesday that it has changed its mind. The agency, Welfare Client Data Systems (WCDS), told KCRA 3 that it could not come to an agreement on the terms of a contract and will no longer negotiate with the company. […] Deloitte, which was widely blamed for a botched software upgrade that left hundreds of thousands of Californians without their unemployment benefits, was negotiating with WCDS to run the CalWin automation system, which sends out welfare benefits."
