DCF KILLS A $190M FAILURE

Published Aug. 3, 2007

The Department of Children and Families is officially pulling the plug on an expensive and controversial computer system that was supposed to help child abuse investigators.

The department began the switch to a new computer system Saturday.

The HomeSafenet project has been plagued with problems since its inception 13 years ago, but the DCF continued to try to make it work. The agency ultimately spent $190-million for a system that was never finished and never met its mission.
