D.C. Wire has the story about an Education project in DC that went horribly awry and cost the city $5.5M for something that doesn’t even remotely work. Several councilmembers got to hammer away at the Chief Procurement Officer and State Superintendent on Friday afternoon for the abject failure to conform the project. In addition to the lengthy delays in delivery and error-prone system, the consultants they hired to build it are nearly bankrupt. Way to go, DC Government, that’s another big win for us all.

Nicely done.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
