- Maximus Ametorgoh, an IT expert, is convinced that a local developer could take less than $1 million for the project
- Five persons are currently under investigations with regard to the transaction
An Information Technology (IT) professional has asserted the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) could have secured the software they required for less than $ 1 million.
The purpose of the software was to help in the networking of all branches of SSNIT.
He went on to say that for SSNIT to agree to pay $66 million for the software stimulated lots of questions. Information currently available indicates that the amount is $72 million, and not $66 million as widely publicized.
Maximus Ametorgoh added that SSNIT manages the accounts of about 990,000 contributors. To him, a local developer could have used less than $1million dollars to execute the task.
SSNIT’s board of trustees, led by Dr. Kwame Addo – Kufuor, has contacted the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) to conduct investigations into the matter.
