Another entry in the ongoing story of Steven Joyce’s ego-ministry: Steven Joyce justifies cost of $600K government website –
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s new website went live yesterday, and the first media release revealed it cost $599,872 to create it.
Just two months ago MBIE was under fire for putting up a sign outside its new premises that cost $67,000 and spending $140,000 on a curved information screen in the reception area.
On the website Joyce claims “it would have cost a lot more to upgrade and maintain the four websites it has replaced”. Someone should ask him for the figures, and the details of this $600K project.
