Good for Assembly Rep. Mark Pocan. He is a plaintiff in fighting the contract entered into by the staff director of the Wisconsin Elections Board, and Pocan has done some research. Neighbor Minnesota did their own work on voter lists for $5.3 million and guess what? They own the hardware and the software. How did they do it? They used Minnesota brain power--state employees.
Cost of Wisconsin's contract to outsource? A cool $13.9 million for Accenture and $2.7 million to the firm Deloitte Consulting. And when the lists are complete who owns the software and hardware? You guessed it: Accenture.
Well done, Mark.
