Money Well Spent?

It seems that the delivery of the IT security system for the Athens Olympics will be delayed until the end of June.

The system is being supplied by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), who had promised to deliver it by the end of May.

There are unconfirmed reports that even when delivered, the system will only be 85% functional; does that give you a feeling of confidence, or not?

Security is proving to be an expensive headache, the cost is estimated to be 1BN Euros. Given the cost, one might have expected that the authorities would get a system that was 100% functional.
