    Default Dept. Of An Toaoiseach to pay 250k for website!

    According to story.ie the Dept of an Taoiseach is to pay Terminal Four €244,741.71 for a website for
    the Eu Presidency.

    As someone who works in a related field this is a gross missuse of taxpayers money.

    Even including security and hosting this figure is astronomical!

    There are the contracts awarded by the Department of the Taoiseach as a direct result of the planning and administration of Ireland’s Presidency of the EU 2013. Costs include the website Irish Presidency of the Council of European Union, 2013, which cost €244,741.71.

    That figure is insane.

    2,500 would be more than enough.

    What would be a realistic quote for a contract of this type?

    A would like to see what is being provided before assuming that that sort of money is astronomical, although astronomical is certainly what it sounds.

    I wish I could get my hands on that magic money tree in Leinster House. It's so lucky they have one when needing to find funds for projects like this, and other pet projects.

    Depends on what they want, how many sections there are, Flash, movies etc etc.

    You can spend as much as you like developing a website. I was involved in overseeing the development of one for a music group and that cost just north of €40k. But it had the bells and whistles.

    This figure for Enda's vanity project is completely off the Richter.

    The public sector used to have that capability.

    Then it was decided that outsourcing would be more "efficient" and "cost effective".

    Ah well.
