+ - Air Force Scraps $1 Billion ERP Project->

Submitted by

itwbennett writes "Having fruitlessly spent over $1 billion on an Oracle ERP system that failed to produce 'any significant military capability,' the Air Force has decided to scrap it. 'We estimate it would require an additional $1.1B for about a quarter of the original scope to continue and fielding would not be until 2020. The Air Force has concluded the ECSS program is no longer a viable option for meeting the FY17 Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness (FIAR) statutory requirement. Therefore, we are cancelling the program and moving forward with other options in order to meet both requirements,' an Air Force spokesman said in an emailed statement Wednesday."
