According to the Hawk Eye, Iowa has the distinction of joining Nevada and Wisconsin on our list of recent state government project failures. In this case, A.T. Kearney was hired for $3.4 million and saved the state $2.9 million. From the article:

“When [the project] started, the payment to A.T. Kearney was about 35 percent of projected savings, but it ended up being about 120 percent of savings,” [state auditor David] Vaudt said.

Obviously, the outcome was affected by something expected after the project started. The state says it’s a multi-year contract, and hopes the loss can be made up in the future.

Will this contract pay off for Iowa in the end? I doubt it.
