Staffing changes weren't confined to the business analysts. In fact, since the project's start 638 IBM contractors have worked on it, "with the majority of the workforce having less than one year on the project and 75 percent having less than two years," the report states.

Carnegie Mellon's study recommends that state officials build an improved governance structure for the project, and also that work on the third release of the software be halted in favor of stabilizing previous releases.
