Union County's web site creation--Part II
 

Issue Detail:

 
In my May 19, 2011 posting (see http://www.countywatchers.com/?p=4608) I questioned why and how Union County decided to award a $136,600 no-bid contract to Web Creation of New Jersey, LLC, web design company which had no apparent history and was created less than a month prior to the contract being awarded. On that day, I requested that Union County provide me with: 1. Other than Rich Loalbo's May 10, 2010 letter and the company's "Union County Multi Channel Communication Portal Design and Maintenance Proposal," any records upon which Mr. Faella based his conclusion that Web Creations of New Jersey, LLC possessed "experience and artistic web design expertise." 2. The quotation and proposal submitted by the web designing firm that the County rejected. In response to my first request, the County advised me that there are no records responsive to my request. (See page 1 of the PDF at the link below.) In response to my second request, the company provided me with a proposal from JK Design of Hillsborough, New Jersey which has created web sites for companies such as Phillips Lighting and LG Commercial and public entities such as the City of Jersey City. For examples of the firm's work, see http://www.jkdesign.com/links While JK Design's and Web Creations' are difficult to compare to one another, JK Design offered to charge between $99,000 to $129,000 for its "core project total fees." (See page 11 of the PDF.) Also, JK Design's proposal contains biographies for twelve "Project Leaders" that shows each person's areas of experience and accomplishments. (See page 34 of the PDF.) Web Creations' proposal has no similar section. The PDF referred to above is at John Paff
