Criticisms

During 2007 Deloitte faced sustained criticism over the payroll system it implemented for the Los Angeles Unified School District ('LAUSD'). The firm sold the system to LAUSD for US$95m and because of faults in the system the schoolteachers were underpaid, overpaid or not paid at all.[14] As at 31 December 2007 LAUSD had incurred a total of US$140m in payments to Deloitte to get the system working properly.[15] However in January 2008 there was some evidence that that the payroll issues had started to stabilize with errors below 1% according to LAUSD's chief operating officer.[16] Image File history File links Unbalanced_scales. ...
