DisputeSoft has served as an independent expert on federal, state and local governmental IT disputes, both for governmental entities and for software developers who contract with government agencies.

    The tasks of government increasingly involve information systems. Processes such as managing and administering taxes, public land, and healthcare exchanges, as well as traditional functions such as payroll and budgeting, can be made vastly more efficient with the proper implementation of software. But software developed under a government contract is no less susceptible than a private sector software project to claims of failure, delay, or even fraud. When a dispute arises, an expert can help explain terminology and standard practice involved in a complex IT implementation project, interpret contractual requirements, and evaluate the merits of each party’s position.
