North Dakota Work Comp Agency Sues Aon eSolutions over Failed Project

April 16, 2014

North Dakota’s workers’ compensation agency has sued a Chicago company over a failed $17 million computer system overhaul.

Workforce Safety and Insurance hired Aon eSolutions in 2007 for a software system upgrade. The work was to cost $14 million but was plagued by delays and cost overruns and was never finished.

The contract with the company expired in 2012 and WSI did not renew it. WSI says the company failed to deliver a software system.

Aon says in a statement that it did nothing wrong and the company looks forward to telling its side of the story in court.

The state Legislature last year gave WSI $750,000 for potential litigation.

WSI Deputy Director Clare Carlson says the agency is still using its old computer system.
