Sydney Water, the country?s largest water services provider, was busy dealing with the effects of this drought.However, the utility?s directors had a more pressing concern. The new customer information and billing system (CIBS), Sydney Water?s largest information technology project, was over-time, over-budget and not performing to expectations.The board of directors had asked Alex Walker, Sydney Water?s managing director (MD or chief executive officer (CEO)), to present a progress report. The project had been budgeted at $38.22 million in 2000 and was scheduled to end in February 2002. To date, more than $60 million had been spent and project completion had been delayed to at least the last quarter of 2003.The board was meeting on July 17 and had to decide what action to take.BACKGROUNDSydney WaterSydney Water was a corporation owned by the government of New South Wales (N SW), Australia?s most populous state.
