$18M Being Spent to Redesign Recovery.gov Web Site
What?! Who is doing this for them? Even at crazy high rates, this number is is nuts.
($200/hour)(40 hours/1 week)(52 weeks/1 year) = $416,000/year
5 year long project.
($416,000/year)*5 years = $2,080,000 (we still have not spent $18 million)
It is going to take about 8.5 people, 5 years at the cost of $18 million to "redesign" a web site? Forget "redesign". Let say they are actually going to "redo" the website. Sounds like that SOW was a winner.
