Contract Purpose

The contract for the creation of the application has expired but there are still two yearly maintenance fees that are needed to keep the application current and running smoothly. The changes that PC Bennett created are proprietary and owned by them, it thus requires them to provide ongoing licensing and assistance for the configurations to the software.

As PC Bennett is the assigned provider of Acumatica licenses and the proprietary owner of the custom built local funds system designed specifically for DSHS needs.
