Today, ABC news is reporting that the stimulus tracking site recovery.gov is undergoing a major redesign. The six-month old site is being revamped by Smartronix, a Maryland based company that wins millions of dollars in federal government contracts annually. The cost of the redesign, according to ABC News, is an estimated $18 million dollars in taxpayer money, or 5.9 cents for every man, woman and child in America. The goal of the site is preventing waste in the disbursement of the $787 billion dollars in stimulus money to projects all over the United States. A noble goal, but spending $18 million updating a site that already exists might raise some eyebrows in itself.
