UNISYS ATTEMPT TO BLOCK AWARD TO RIVAL REJECTED BY FLORIDA’S DHRS

By CBR Staff Writer

Florida’s Department of Health & Rehabilitative Services in Talahassee (yes, that’s the state capital) said a state hearing officer has rejected an attempt by Unisys Corp to block the award of a multi-million dollar data processing contract to rival bidder Electronic Data Systems Corp: Unisys had contended that the department unfairly favoured the winning companies by altering an elaborate points system used to score the bids, but the health department said the hearing officer ruled that Unisys has failed to prove that the EDS proposal contain any deviations from specifications as detailed by the state agency; the health department says the $107m system proposed by Electronic Data Systems will free its employees from having to fill out more than 150 separate forms.
