Expensive IT Program Won’t Deliver on Promises, Analyst Says


The legislative analyst reported January 8 that the large information technology project known as the Financial Information System for California (FI$CAL) “will not deliver what the Legislature expected when it authorized” the project 15 years ago.


“FI$Cal has significantly evolved since 2005 with, to date, eight major revised project plans (known as special project reports) … that each significantly changed the project’s cost, schedule, and scope,” the analyst stated.
