The problem was the selection process, and as you have put it, the broken legacy selection process. The project was completely based on price alone, where a Canadian based company was able to snatch up the contracts while the Federal government looked at the price and bought right in.

Projects need to be done by selecting agencies and firms that act like partners and that fit the company perfectly for the project. Although it sounds cliche, a company that sees(and may even need) the project to succeed would ensure a perfect product is delivered every time.

A project like this really should never been scoped and selected solely based on price. So it was doomed from the beginning. Yet another runaway IT project train fueled by large revenue size, driven by silo'd companies whose right hand doesn't know what the left is doing.

Just goes to show that having 1 central company to work with, who will ensure the project is on track every step of the way is paramount.
