Summary:

  U.S. Census Bureau signed a $600 million contract with Harris corporation in 2006 to build 500,000 devices, but still wasn’t sure which features they wanted included in the units. Census officials did not specify the testing process to measure the performance of the handheld devices. Four hundred change requests were added to the project requirements. Two years and hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars later, the handhelds were far too slow and unreliable to be used for the 2010 U.S. census. -To answer the questions, you may want to consider the following readings: http://harris.com/view_pressrelease.asp?act=lookup&pr_id=1818 http://www.census.gov/2010census/news/releases/operations/census-bureau-awards-600-million-contract-to-support-automation-project.html http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2010/06/02/the-census-bureaus-recent-history-of-throwing-billions-of-dollars-down-the-drain/ http://www.mytwocensus.com/tag/harris-corporation/ http://www.zdnet.com/article/billion-dollar-it-failure-at-census-bureau/ https://www.census.gov/2010census/pdf/2010_Census_Evaluation_of_Automation_in_Field_Data_Collection_in_Address_Canvassing_Report.pdf   Based on the readings above, please answer the following.
