There was the further complication of a parallel scheme to relocate the compensation staff to another geographical area (i.e., moving government jobs around for political reasons) AND reduce their overall numbers. The end results were that most of the incumbent personnel quit or were laid off (as expected) and you wound up with a buggy system operated by mostly inexperienced people.
