Massive social security IT revamp flops

A massive project to revamp the UWV social security offices’ computer system has flopped, costing the state €87m, Trouw reports on Thursday.

An investigation is currently under way into the failure of the project and should be completed at the end of this year.
The project was being carried out by in-house staff and computer services firm Logica and was cancelled in June after 30 months of work, the paper says.
