  • Government Back Office Systems The high cost of success and failure
  • State Back-Office Systems Since in Hawaii our Tax/ Revenue system needs to be replaced, I’ll focus on those. But this really applies to most government back-office systems. • Big • Expensive • Clunky • Horrible • Get disruptive
  • Big • There are no small tax systems • 500K > State Populations > 37M • Subsystems: • Intake: Mail, electronic, payments • Inquiry (Customer Service, Research) • Collections • Audit • Refunds • Licensing • Accounting • Imaging • Archives
  • Expensive • Four primary vendors have 75% of the business • Some states grow their own. • The cost between a failure and a success is not that different!
  • Expensive • Upfront costs are enormous • Between $25 and $100 million • Annual Support is Staggering • $2 - $10 million
  • Expensive: Cost per year! $0 $1,000,000 $2,000,000 $3,000,000 $4,000,000 $5,000,000 $6,000,000 $7,000,000 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Tax System Projects
  • Clunky • Based on old technology by definition • Lifecycle is 12 years • Project today starts with 6 year old tech • User interface style even older
  • Horrible • In the last 12 years 5 states have sued the vendor over the system delivered. • Others (like HI) have opted to tread onward.
  • Crap! What now? • So the vendors charge a bazillion $ • The solutions can cause more problems than they solve. • It can’t be that hard to do!
  • Examples of Other Disruptive Systems • Cashiering Systems • Paper and drawer • Adding Machines – with audit ribbon • Computer aided • Networked (NEC) • PC Based • Cell Phone Based (Square)
  • Examples of Other Disruptive Systems • Data Storage • Stone • Paper • Images (Cold Storage Systems) • Photoelectric • Magnetic • Optical • Data • Ledger • Computer data structures • Cloud
  • Examples of Other Disruptive Systems • Publishing • Printing Press • Offset Printing • Software based design • Ink-jet and laser printing • Print on demand services • Costco…
  • Why Not Open Source It? 1. Execute an RFI for the perfect Integrated Tax System. 2. Create a contest for an Open Source Integrated Tax Solution leveraging the RFI! 3. Set awards of $1M, $500K and $300K to the top three. 4. Contract or use state IT to manage the contest, evaluate and host the system
  • $3M could do a lot! • We could afford two tax systems and choose features from the best one! • State owns the code and opens the source to other states/ nations. • World Peace follows. (possible over optimism)
  • Other Systems Too This approach could work for much more! • Election system back-ends • Enterprise Resource Planning • Legislative Data Systems • More..
