3M Co. has yet to receive its final $2 million payment from Kansas for its DMV motor-vehicle software contract, the Topeka Capital-Journal reports. State officials say the new $40 million system is still too buggy and won't pay off the remaining $25 million contract until the issues are fixed, including system response times, availability, bugs and maintenance.
