A report in The Australian said TechnologyOne founder and executive chairman Adrian Di Marco said the Council was in possession of the report, and "if it’s truly damning TechnologyOne, then publish it".
He claimed that he knew the report clearly blamed the Council for the lack of progress in the deal, and "they did not know their business process and they put their B-team on the job".
Di Marco accused the Council of trying to hide the report and choosing arbitration after calling off the $122 million deal to replace its business systems.
“If they were really genuine they would have gone to arbitration before they cancelled the contract.”
The contract was awarded in June 2015, but earlier this year the mayor of Brisbane said he would seek to have it renegotiated as the rollout would end up 18 months behind schedule and $60 million over budget.
TechnologyOne was issued a first show-cause notice by the Council on 2 May and responded on 29 May with what it said was a detailed response. On 20 June, the Council informed TechnologyOne that it would not be terminating the contract.
TechnologyOne then issued a show-cause notice to the Council on 30 May over the non-payment for work on two phases of the project, Milestones 7 and 8. Payment of $750,000 was received on 23 June, remedying this issue.
The second show-cause notice issued by the Council was on 26 June.
