DisputeSoft was engaged as a consulting and testifying expert in March 2013 by the California State Controller’s Office (SCO) in the matter of California State Controller’s Office v. SAP Public Services, Inc.
The SCO alleged that SAP had breached a software implementation contract as well as the covenant of good faith and fair dealing in connection with the implementation of a new human resources and payroll system for approximately 240,000 California state employees. The system was known as the “MyCalPAYS” system, and it was intended to replace the State’s existing legacy system. In February 2013, SCO terminated its $90 million implementation contract with SAP after an unsuccessful eight-month pilot involving approximately 1,500 state employees. Litigation ensued.
