but we're mere beginners compared to the government.
The Central Office of Information has disclosed the fact that in the year 2009 - 2010 the government spent £94m on website development and running costs and £32m on web staff. Yes, that's around £615,000 every week for people who keep website content up to date.
One site,the UK Trade and Investment website, cost £4 million to build, and averaged 28,000 visitors a month - each visitor cost us £11.78
Now I know that some of you, like me, know a thing or two about what goes into designing and developing a website, so perhaps you would like to click here and tell me where you see £4 millions' worth of work.
The NHS website spent £5 million in 2009 on "marketing and customer relations"
Excuse me - what was someone doing that cost the taxpayers over £96,000 a week; what marketing and customer relations effort was needed for a National Health Service? We're a captive audience, aren't we?
Can you tell that I'm utterly incensed by all this?
FE should get a pay rise of 70%,after all keeping us all in order is sometimes like herding cats.Were a good bunch though,were almost family where we all get on with only the odd spat.FE you run the Rolls Royce of forums from us all thankyou.
Totally agree. People around me tell me that I am an old git when I tell them that 25 years ago, whilst working for BT, I was involved in the commissioning of a new hospital and there was one hospital secretary and 3 or 4 clerical support staff, this grew only slightly until the 90s when a whole day care centre was given over to NHS managers who seem to outnumber the frontline staff. Are they adding value, I doubt it.
