Due to an editing error, the story "Danish police drop massive IT project" posted Feb. 3 misstated the currency of the project cost in the third, seventh and eighth paragraphs. The cost increased by 425.2 million Danish kroner, from 153 million kroner.

The story has been corrected on the wire, and those paragraphs now read, in order:

The system was being developed by IT giant CSC and had been hit by years of delays and increased costs of hundreds of millions of Danish kroner.

The price was expected to be approximately 153 million kroner (US$27 million), but with delays the project became increasingly expensive.

In late 2010, a document indicated that costs for the project had risen to 425.2 million kroner.
