State Senate panel to look at jobless claim system

The state senate’s Committee on Post Audit and Oversight plans to hold a hearing on problems with the rollout of a new $46 million unemployment claims computer system.

Senator Cynthia Stone Creem, the Newton Democrat who chairs the committee, said Thursday she’s holding the hearing Oct. 28 in light of the delays and payment problems experienced by jobless workers since the introduction of the system on July 1. Creem said the hearing will delve into questions surrounding the contract, as well as the larger issue of how the state buys and manages information-technology services.
