DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware’s procurement office is suing a software company hired to build a state website, saying it violated a $2.26 million contract by halting the project.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports (https://delonline.us/29SrUg5) the state’s Office of Budget and Management’s Government Support Services filed a lawsuit earlier this year against SciQuest over the long-delayed project that stalled out in September.

The company was hired to create a website where various state agencies could advertise open contracts, among other things.

The agency already paid $1.12 million to SciQuest and is withholding the remaining funds, hoping the court will force the company to complete the job.

SciQuest has filed counterclaims saying it met every contract requirement and more.

Officials and attorneys for both sides in the case declined to comment to the newspaper.
