Delay in the implementation of a #150 million computer system for the Department of Social Security has caused 100,000 benefit payments to be estimated, meaning some claimants could be underpaid, and others overpaid, with no way for the government to reclaim the money. Alistair Darling, the social security secretary, said that any government losses would be pursued with Andersen Consulting, which was contracted to carry out the work under the Public Finance Initiative. Darling denied that any data had been lost in the late arrival of the new system.
