    Apologies if this has already appeared in another thread...

    Ireland will spend €250k on a 2,500 page website (you do the math)

    The Government is to pay nearly €250,000 for the development of a website for Ireland’s presidency of the EU which commences in January.
    The Department of the Taoiseach confirmed last night that a website design company, Terminal Four Solutions Ltd had been awarded a contract for professional services in relation to the EU presidency 2013 website.
    The cost of the contract was €244,741.71.
    Details of contracts worth more than €330,000 in relation to Ireland’s EU presidency were published yesterday by the website, thestory.ieon foot of a Freedom of Information request.

    It's madness, though compared to what they spent back in 2004 it's an "improvement" ...

    The CMS company looks like they got the bulk for "CMS licensing" ....?

    I propose a new Rule-of-thumb for 2013 "Just because you can tender, doesn't mean you know how to buy effectively"
