My government paid $4.3mill+ for this website. Is it really worth that much?

    As the title said. I just found out that my norwegian government paid over $4 million dollars to set up a police website: politi.no
    Is the site really worth the 4$ mill. dollars? It looks like a cat took a dump on it and then a dog ate that dump and took a dump on it again if you ask me.

    Any thoughts?

    Govt. contracts are never given based on efficiency, they are given on contacts

    if i were to make a site like that :) i would ask for 1000-2000 euros. That website can not be worth more than 10.000$ on any planet in this solar system :) ( not for the work put in to it).

    Your government got scammed!

    Or they are scamming you (the citizens of Norge) by spending your money on things worth $2k-5K TOPS, but saying it cost them $4mil and putting the rest of the money in their pocket.

    My but you Socialists just LOVE your Police. Try to stop paying their exorbitant salaries, and see how fast your ass lands in jail. Your "government" didn't pay that money, YOU did, lol, roflmao.

    But Hay, at least you got government health care, right?

    Too bad you don't have any guns in order to take your freedom back.

    I hope you don't expect any American sympathy. You come from a culture that has an uncontrollable desire to have the government take care of you, and this is the natural result.

    One of the translated lines of the website was "Report a relationship to the Police" and another was "Tell the Police", so it appears to me that the Nords aren't content to have just classification of informing the Police on their neighbor's activities, they have (at least) two different kinds of informing.

    Maybe the domain is from the 2000. But they redesigned the site again in 2009.

    You have no idea what the work entailed.

    It for the money there is no way that you are getting what you see from the front. It must have the mother of all back end systems on it.

    I doubt highly that it would cost that much to make that site.
