Following this, Brisbane Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk, gave TechnologyOne six months to deliver its new $122 million regulatory system, appoint a system integrator to assist in its implementation into council's existing systems, and provide a "viable alternative option to ensure existing IT systems remain available when necessary."
TechnologyOne responded to the comments, saying that the two parties had agreed to be development partners but as the project developed, the BCC was not able to meet its end of the development commitment.
The company characterised the event at the time as a misunderstanding within the council and welcomed an enquiry.
However, with that enquiry now complete, the Lord Mayor has refused to release the report of the independent review committee, saying it would not be in the interests of the ratepayers of Brisbane, while negotiating with TechnologyOne.
TechnologyOne said it remains confident of its legal and commercial position and will vigorously pursue its legal rights.
