Michigan Holding Xerox Corporation Accountable For EBT Program Crash

Posted: Updated:

Michigan is now holding Xerox Corporation accountable for the crash of the food stamp program over the weekend by withholding money.

The specific amount is unclear.

The Department of Human Services says Michigan has a right to hold 15% of the October bill because of vendor non-compliance.  

Xerox could lose up to $80,000.  

The problem started on Saturday.

A routine backup test by Xerox caused the system to fail.  

The company fixed the issue later in the day.
