Back in November 2004, EDS Canada Inc. was awarded a controversial contract by the provincial government to maximize British Columbia's revenue collection services. This being the same contract that awarded EDS "unexpected 'windfall' profits thanks to inaccurate baseline information from the ministry of health. But, despite the "delays and increased costs" that resulted in EDS "negotiating an extension to certain delivery deadlines," the ministry of small business and revenue still won an award for that project. In November 2007, the Canadian Information Technology Productivity Association gave the ministry a gold award of excellence "for exceptional application of information technology to transform processes and bring benefits to its stakeholders." Fancy that!
