Up to $19 Million More for the Stimulus Website

ABC News is reporting the Administration has issued a contract to spend between $9.5 to $18 million stimulus dollars to redesign Recovery.gov, the portal through which taxpayers are supposedly able to monitor the stimulus:
“Recovery.gov 2.0 will use innovative and interactive technologies to help taxpayers see where their dollars are being spent,” James A. Williams, commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, says in a press release announcing the contract awarded to Maryland-based Smartronix Inc. “Armed with easy access to this information, taxpayers can make government more accountable for its decisions.”
The first question these “newly armed” taxpayers should be along the lines of, “How many jobs will this $18 million save or create?”
