26 Nov Wisconsin to improve cost estimates on prison IT system
Madison, Wis. — Wisconsin CIO Oskar Anderson said the state will more closely monitor the costs of a Department of Corrections computer system, according to the Associated Press.
Anderson wrote in a letter to Senator Rob Cowles, R-Green Bay, that the state will begin estimating the cost of state employees assigned to the project, which to date is unknown.
The more than $25 million project is to replace old computer systems that track around 23,000 state prisoners, plus those on probation and parole.
