Kansas Lawmakers Approve Contract for Software

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas lawmakers have approved a six-month contract with a software company that was criticized for technical delays last year. The Legislative Coordinating Council this week approved a $293,488 contract for Propylon, a Dublin-based technology firm with a U.S. office in Lawrence. The company will perform technical support and upgrades for the Legislature's custom software. The Wichita Eagle reports that legislative leaders complained during the last session that software problems slowed down the legislative process and delayed votes. The contract was under review since July. The state has paid Proplyon about $16 million since 2005 to construct and maintain the Kansas Legislative Information System and Services portal. It is used for writing, researching and publishing bills. The new contract, which lasts through June, includes measures to ensure greater accountability.
