According to the SF Examiner, the going rate for the overhaul of the US Government site Recovery.org is $9.5 million dollars over the next 6-months. Your tax dollars hard at work. I’m holding my breath for the promised transparency:
The silver lining here is that after months of spending, this contract signals movement to finally disclose officially where the money has been going. More importantly, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, which oversees Recovery.gov, has promised to make all of the raw spending data available to the public.
I’d have done it for $7 million.
