Gov. Daniels Severs Indiana's Welfare Contract with IBM

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels has canceled the state’s 10-year, $1.34 billion contract with the IBM Corporation, which designed the state’s modern, complicated welfare system.

The system may be more modernized and stream-lined than past systems, but its byzantine and complicated policies lack the human touch that critics say health care requires.  It took one woman months to get the welfare assistance she needed to help combat the cancer that racked her body, and was approved by the computer system one day after she sucumbed to the disease.

Indiana legislators hope to provide a more fair, more equitable, and more personal system to replace the IBM one.
