HI Will Receive $20M Settlement Over Failed DOT Financial Project

The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) and the Department of the Attorney General are pleased to report that the State has successfully resolved its litigation stemming from a failed project to upgrade the HDOT Highways Division financial management system. The remaining defendants in the lawsuit recently agreed to pay over $20 million in settlement, bringing HDOT’s total recovery to $31,775,000.

The litigation relates to misconduct by Ciber, Inc., a Colorado-based technology firm that HDOT hired in 2008 following a competitive sealed proposal process. Ciber was hired to design and implement a financial accounting system, on an Oracle software platform, for HDOT’s Highways Division. Ciber’s work on the project was beset by delays, design defects, failed tests, and a shortage of skilled consultants. After five years of error-filled work and nearly $7 million in fees from the State, Ciber abandoned the project in 2014 without delivering a functioning system.
