Yes I am sure that was the problem.

Not the fact the scope was badly define by the fed's procuration, changed countless times while the basic system was build, the govt sponsor was replaced after 4 months, the new one (political appointment) rejected everything that was done because could not understand it, rebaselined on his own definition of what should be delivered and change the main supplier ( and that happened 3 times: new sponsor, baseline and main supplier in 14 months, while the grunts were still developping with the old specs) and the mainframe specs were also modified after delivery (twice).

Yes, I do have some inside info about that mess, should you ask.

Merci
