The Iowa City City Council will vote Sept. 4 to approve a contract with Tyler Technologies Inc. for a software package to be used for payroll and human resources, including a financial module for Iowa City.

The contract will cost $832,165, which exceeds the amount the City Manager can approve, thus requiring council approval.

The new software package comes after more than a year of searching for a product that best suits the city.

In October 2011, Iowa City officials filed a lawsuit against their former software packaging company, Innoprise Software, which is based in Colorado, alleging that the company failed to deliver a working enterprise resource planning software suite to the city.

Innoprise Software was acquired by Harris Computer Systems Inc., and Iowa City reached a settlement with Harris in the amount of $30,000 last April.

Tyler Technologies is based in Dallas and focuses primarily on providing software services for local governments and schools.
