Five Oracle executives are to testify at the upcoming investigation into the controversial $95m contract awarded to the company by the state of California.
The Joint Legislative Audit Committee in California confirmed on Monday that it was looking to secure subpoenas for the executives in question. But Oracle has since agreed that the five would testify.
State officials claim the contract in question did not involve a proper selection process, and believe that few staff would actually use the software purchased by the government departments.
It has so far led to three state employees resigning.
Oracle also contributed $25,000 to the re-election campaign of California's state governor Gray Davis, adding to the controversy, although the donation has since been returned.
"Beginning with Oracle's multiple offers to rescind the contract, we have co-operated every step of the way with all parties involved in reviewing the software agreement," Oracle said in a statement. "We look forward to a factual discussion with the committee."
Oracle later suggested that it might provide one "appropriate witness" to represent the executives who are to testify. The committee, however, confirmed that it would push for all five to take the stand.
