Compuware provided SSA with software maintenance and license upgrades for various Compuware mainframe and distributed software products. Compuware software products are essential to SSA’s day-to-day mainframe operating environment.

In September 2009, SSA awarded a $54.2 million, 5-year (base year plus 4 option years), firm-fixed-price delivery order contract, SS00-09-31564, to Compuware. The delivery order performance period was September 30, 2009 through September 29, 2014.

Our objective was to (1) ensure the Social Security Administration (SSA) received the goods and/or services for which it contracted with Compuware Corporation (Compuware); and (2) review the services provided by Compuware and the related costs charged to SSA for adherence to the negotiated contract terms and applicable regulations.
