Efficiency in city government delayed until further notice

From the Anchorage Daily News: “The city is pushing back the start date for a new software system that was already more than a year behind its original launch. The system, known as SAP, is supposed to improve the efficiency of the city’s data processing in the areas of accounting, purchasing, and benefits administration — replacing an aging PeopleSoft application.”

Adding injury to irony, what was once a $10.6 million cost to upgrade the system is now $15.1 million and maybe more.

As Howard Weaver put it on Facebook: “These pro-business Republicans sure know how to run a tight ship.”
