Government withholds details on contract to redesign Recovery.gov (9.1 Million)

The makeover will cost taxpayers $9.5 million through January 2010 and as much as $18 million if all options are exercised until January 2014, GSA said. But it did not disclose what those dollars are being spent on or how many other companies competed for the award. Wednesday's release only noted that 59 companies were eligible to bid. As announced in a June 11 presolicitation notice, the contract was restricted to 59 firms.

This is ridiculous. No wonder the government is in so much debt.

I wonder why do we have to pay this much money for a website. I know some college students that'll get this done for $100k easily. But, shy of $10Mil is a lot for a website.

Sounds like private contractors fleecing government doesn't end when the torch is passed.

FTA: "Observers criticized the General Services Administration, which on Wednesday announced it had awarded Hollywood, Md.-based Web services provider Smartronix a contract to upgrade the site, for failing to provide more information about the deal. The announcement included the name of the company, the value of the contract and two quotes from government officials about the forthcoming site's ability to let 'taxpayers see where their dollars are being spent.'"
