LA Schools Get Payroll System on Track

Susan Hall

The Los Angeles school district seems to have ironed out payroll problems after nearly a year of woes with implementation of an SAP system, reports the Los Angeles Daily News.


Errors related to the system were less than 1 percent in its Jan. 10 payroll. Its error rate was 1.27 percent in December, and 2.97 percent in November. Its goal had been three consecutive months of reliable payroll.


The project already has cost the school district $40 million over its planned $95 million. And a Los Angeles assemblyman has introduced legislation to push the district to recover lost money through a lawsuit or negotiated settlement from Deloitte & Touche, which was hired to implement the system.


While ZDNet blogger Michael Krigsman supports that move, he said the district's own project management can't be held blameless.


The system's third phase, purchasing, is due to roll out in January 2009.
