LIMS Project Failure - an excellent report on the cause
by Ephraim Gadsby
I recently wrote a blog on the failure of the LIMS at the FBI and provided a link to the article in the newspaper that reported the failure. Now the US DoJ, Office of the Inspector General Audit Division, has released, what I would consider, a very excellent and thorough report which provides an analysis of the cause and the recommendations.
There is very little that I can say that is not said better in the report. Frankly, I am very surprised at how thorough and believable the report is. I expected the government to blame the vendor but they really provide a very balanced report. The vendor definitely had some very serious technical, management and security issues as the report reveals but it lays the ultimate project failure squarely on FBI management.
